The Problem Given a triangle one angle is twice the measure of the other two angles, what are the measures of the angles and what kind of triangle is it.
The Solution The sum of the degrees of each of the three angles of any triangle equals 180 degrees. We have 2*x + x + x = 180. So 4*x = 180. And x = 45 degrees. So the larger angle is 90 degrees and the other two angles are 45 degrees each. So this is a right triangle.
