Please help! geometry question!

I have a triangle. Angle a=90 deg., Angle b= 3x, Angle c=x+6. What is the measure of angle c? Please explain how to figure this out!

All triangles add up to 180 degrees, so because 180 - 90 is 90, angle b + and c = 90.

3x + x + 6 = 90
4x + 6 = 90
4x = 84
x = 21

Then from there you plug in the value of x to get angle c

Angle C = x + 6
Angle C = 21 + 6
Angle C = 27

Hope this helped

b=63, c=27. All angles must add up to 180. A=90, so that leaves 90 left to go. So 3x+x+6=90. So 4x+6=90. So 4x=84. So x=21. 3x=63. x+6=27.
