$75^{\circ}, 45^{\circ}, 120^{\circ}$

Work Step by Step

1. Given 2 interior angles and 1 exterior angle of the triangle. We can use extrerior angle to find the third interior angle of the triangle. We just need to subtract the exterior angle from 180 degrees. $180^{\circ}-(9x-12)^{\circ}=-9x+168$ 2. The sum of interior angles of the triangle equal to the 180 degrees $(6x+3)^{\circ}+(4x-3)^{\circ}+(-9x+168) ^{\circ}=180^{\circ}$ 3. Solve the equation for x: $x+168=180$ $x=12^{\circ}$ 4. Then find all the angles by replacing x=12: $6(12)+3=75^{\circ}$ $4(12)-3=45^{\circ}$ $9(12)+12=120^{\circ}$
