Chapter 8 - Geometry - 8.5 Triangles - 8.5 Exercises: 17

Answer

The unknown angle is 48$^{\circ}$.

Work Step by Step

The sum of the angle in a Triangle is 180$^{\circ}$. Here we will solve for the unknown angle. We will label it $X$. Therefore: 180$^{\circ}$ = 72$^{\circ}$ + 60$^{\circ}$ + $X$ $X$ = 180$^{\circ}$ - (72$^{\circ}$ + 60$^{\circ}$) $X$ = 180$^{\circ}$ - (132$^{\circ}$) $X$ = 48$^{\circ}$
