I will answer this question with the assumption that angles 1,2, & 3 are components of angle ABC. Since AB is perpendicular to BC, then the measure of angle ABC is 90 degrees. If angle 1,2, & 3 are in the ratio of 2:6:10, then we may use 2x for the measure of angle 1, 6x for the measure of angle 2, and 10X for the measure of angle 3. Now, the sum of these three angles is 18X degrees. But it is also 90 degrees. Therefore X is 5. Then angle 1 must measure 10 degrees, angle 2 must measure 30 degrees, and angle 3 must measure 50 degrees.

I must be right since these three angles sum to 90 degrees (a right angle.)
