Hi there! (again, I can't move this to the math category, since the system is down tonight)

Triangle angles add up to 180.

Call the first angle "x".

The second angle is then x+30.

The third angle is then 3x.

The sum of those is 180:

x + x + 30 + 3x = 180

Combine terms:

5x + 30 = 180

Subtract 30:

5x = 150

Divide by 5:

x = 30

So the angles are: 30, 30+30, and 3*30:

30, 60, 90

Let me know if you have any questions,
