 Question from ahmadmahmoud, a student: an isosceles triangle is such that each of the base angles is twice the vertical angle. Find the angles of the triangle.

Hi,

Let $v$ be the measure of the vertical angle in degrees and use the fact that the sum of the measures of the interior angles of a triangle is $180^o .$
