Here the following side represent as 90°-45°-45° right angled triangle

=(3, 4, 5) (5, 12, 13) (7, 24, 25) (8, 15, 17) etc

So the smallest angle = 45°

Next method,

Let the x= smallest angle,

we can also re write as: 3x + 4x + 5x = 180
or 12x = 180
or x= 15

Therefore the smallest angle = 3x = 3*15 = 45°
