  1. 50% larger than a right angle would be (90+45)° or 135°
    That leaves 45° for the two equal angles, making each one 22.5°

  2. An angle with measure $50\%$ larger than the measure of a right angle has measure $\frac{3}{2}\cdot 90^{\circ}=135^{\circ}$.

    Thus the other two angles have a combined measure of $45^{\circ}$ Each one has a measure of

    $$\frac{45^{\circ}}{2}=\boxed{22.5^{\circ}}$$
