You can check this out for yourself.

  1. Draw and cut out a triangle.
  2. Colour the three angles of the triangle.
  3. Tear off the three corners of the triangle.
  4. Place them together like this.

All three pieces fit together to from a straight angle.

∠1 + ∠2 + ∠3 = 180°

Properties of Triangles-1

Look at triangles ABC. The measures of ∠A and ∠B are given. What is the measure of ∠C ?

Properties of Triangles-2

In ΔABC, ∠A + ∠B = 60° + 80° = 140°

The sum of three angles of a triangle is 180°

So, ∠C = 180° – 140° = 40°

Answer: ∠C = 40°
