What is the measure (in degrees) of the smallest interior angle of a triangle in which the exterior angle measures have the ratio 3:4:5?

The sum of the exterior angles   = 360°

 

And   the largest  exterior angle will be supplemental to the smallest interior angle

 

And the largest exterior angle  =   (5 / [ 3 + 4 + 5b] ) * 360  =   (5/12) (360)  = 5 * (360/12) = 5 * 30  = 150°

 

So....the smallest interior angle  = 180  - 150   =  30°
