Solution

Given that,

∠C = 3∠B = 2(∠A + ∠B)

3∠B = 2(∠A + ∠B)

3∠B = 2∠A + 2∠B

∠B = 2∠A

2 ∠A − ∠B = 0 … (i)

We know that the sum of the measures of all angles of a triangle is 180°. Therefore,

∠A + ∠B + ∠C = 180°

∠A + ∠B + 3 ∠B = 180°

∠A + 4 ∠B = 180° … (ii)

Multiplying equation (i) by 4, we obtain

8 ∠A − 4 ∠B = 0 … (iii)

Adding equations (ii) and (iii), we obtain

9 ∠A = 180°

∠A = 20°

From equation (ii), we obtain

20° + 4 ∠B = 180°

4 ∠B = 160°

∠B = 40°

∠C = 3 ∠B

= 3 × 40° = 120°

Therefore, ∠A, ∠B, ∠C are 20°, 40°, and 120° respectively.
