Worksheet Overview

QUESTION 1 of 10

The angles in a triangle add to 180º.

This is no different when the angles are algebraic expressions.

 

Example

Form an equation from the angles shown in this triangle and solve it to find the value of a.

 

 

Answer

The sum of the angles = 180

a + 10 + a - 37 + a = 180

 

We simplify and solve this equation as follows:

3a - 27 = 180

3a = 207

a = 207 ÷ 3 = 69

a = 69

Form an equation from the angles shown in this triangle and solve it to find the value of a.
