# Find the value of the unknown exterior angle x in the following diagrams:

**Solution:**

We know that an exterior angle of a triangle is the sum of interior opposite angles.

By using this fact, we can find out the unknown exterior angle x.

(i) Interior angles are 50° and 70°

Exterior angle = sum of interior opposite angles

𝑥 = 50° + 70°

𝑥 = 120°

(ii) Interior angles are 65° and 45°

Exterior angle = sum of interior opposite angles

𝑥 = 65° + 45°

𝑥 = 110°

(iii) Interior angles are 30° and 70°

Exterior angle = sum of interior opposite angles

𝑥 = 30° + 40°

𝑥 = 70°

(iv) Interior angles are 60° and 60°

Exterior angle = sum of interior opposite angles

𝑥 = 60° + 60°

𝑥 = 120°

(v)Interior angles are 50° and 50°

Exterior angle = sum of interior opposite angles

𝑥 = 50° + 50°

𝑥 = 100°

(vi) Interior angles are 30° and 60°

Exterior angle = sum of interior opposite angles

𝑥 = 30° + 60°

𝑥 = 90°
