Are the exterior angles formed at each vertex equal?

What can you say about the sum of an exterior angle of a triangle and its adjacent interior angle?

What can you say about each of the interior opposite angles when the exterior angles is
a right angle, an obtuse angle and an acute angle?

Can the exterior angle of a triangle be a straight angle?

Dear Student,

Please find below the solution to the asked query:

1 ) All external angles in triangle only be equal if our triangle is an equilateral triangle . Otherwise we get different external angles .

2 ) Sum of exterior angles of triangle is 360° .  and sum of external angle and its adjacent interior angle is 180° .

3 ) We know from external angle theorem that  An measure of an exterior angle of a triangle is equal to the sum of the measures of the two non - adjacent interior angles ( Opposite angles ) .

If external angle is right angle so . sum of the measures of the two non - adjacent interior angles ( Opposite angles ) = right angle ( 90° ) .

If external angle is obtuse angle so . sum of the measures of the two non - adjacent interior angles ( Opposite angles ) = obtuse angle  ( More than 90° ) .

If external angle is acute angle so . sum of the measures of the two non - adjacent interior angles ( Opposite angles ) = acute angle  ( Less than 90° ) .


4 )  External angle of triangle never be straight line ( 180° ) .
