The triangle sum theorem states that the sum of the measures of the interior angles of a triangle equals 180 degrees. Using this theorem alone, one can find the measure of all the angles.

\(m\angle A+m\angle B+m\angle C=180\) | Plug in the measure for all these angles by using substitution. |

\(x-16+2x-155+\frac{1}{2}x+8=180\) | Combine like terms. |

\(3x+\frac{1}{2}x-163=180\) | Add 163 to both sides. |

\(\frac{6}{2}x+\frac{1}{2}x=343\) | Meanwhile, I converted 3x to a fraction that I can combine with the other lingering fraction. |

\(\frac{7}{2}x=343\) | Multiply by 2 on both sides. |

\(7x=686\) | Divide by 7 on both sides. |

\(x=98\) | |

Now, plug in this value for the angle measure expressions.

\(m\angle A=x-16=98-16=82^{\circ}\)

\(m\angle B=2x-155=2*98-155=196-155=41^{\circ}\)

\(m\angle C=\frac{1}{2}x+8=\frac{1}{2}*98+8=49+8=57^{\circ}\)
