Q. 54.9( 18 Votes )

An exterior angle of a triangle is 120° and one of the interior opposite angles is 30°. Find the other angles of the triangle.

Answer :

Given: exterior angle let ABD = 120°


One interior angle let BAC = 30°



As we know, using theorem (2) i.e. if a side of the triangle is produced, the exterior angle so formed is equal to the sum of corresponding opposite interior angles.


Hence,


ABD = BAC + BCA


120° = 30° + BCA


BCA = 120° - 30°


BCA = x = 90°


As we know, using theorem (1), in any triangle, sum of the three interior angles is 180°.


So,


BAC + BCA + ABC = 180°


30° + 90° + y = 180°


y = 180° - 30° - 90°


y = 60°
