PoW taking place: math problemsolving moment of the week

"Using triangles similar to the ones I used in the previous
problem, I can find the measure of the acute angles, which are
supplementary to the obtuse angles. I know that there are 21
voussoirs, so the measure of the smaller angle of the triangle
is equal to 180 divide by 21, which is 8.5714. From the
information I found in the first problem, I created
an equation...."
