Answer:120° =40° +x

so

x=80°

now third angle of triangle is =180-120=60°

so angles are 40,60,80

hope it helped 🙂

Exterior angle = sum of opposite interior angles

Let the other opposite interior angle be x.

120 = 40 + x

x = 120 – 40

x = 80°

Sum of all angles in a triangle is 180°

Let the other angle in the triangle be y

40 + 80 + y = 180

120 + y = 180

y = 180 – 120

y = 60°

Answer: The other 2 angles are 80° and 60°
