## Elementary Geometry for College Students (5th Edition)

$\angle V$ is $36^{\circ}$
Since $\overline{VU}$ = $\overline{VT}$, we know this is an isosceles triangle. Meaning: $\angle T$ = $\angle U$ We know that: $\angle TVU = 180^{\circ}$ $\angle T = 72^{\circ}$ Therefore $\angle U = 72^{\circ}$ $\angle V = 180^{\circ} - 2(72^{\circ})$ $\angle V = 180^{\circ} - 144$ $\angle V = 36^{\circ}$
