5. What is the measure of the third angle, in degrees, in a triangle in which two of the angles measure 32 degrees and 61 degrees?

The third angle is ? degrees.

6.

If a 5 ft 6 in. person casts a 2 ft shadow, how tall, to the nearest tenth of a foot, is a person that casts a 1.5 foot shadow?

5. All three angles of a triangle total to 180 degrees....

you are givern two of them and need the third ('x') sooooo 180 = x + 61 + 32 Find 'x'

6. This can be set up as a ratio you need to find 't'

5 ft 6in = 66 in 2 ft = 24 in 1.5 ft = 18 in (best to be consistent with units)

66in/24in = t/18 in Find 't' (which will be in inches)
