# How to find the missing angle of a right triangle whose one of the angles is measured to be 36 degrees?

Right-angled triangles are very important and interesting types of triangles that have many interesting properties. They follow the Pythagoras theorem. Trigonometry is the study of mathematics that deals with relationships between sides and angles of right-angled triangles a lot. Now, lets understand how to find the missing angle of a right triangle.

## Answer: The missing angle of a right triangle whose one of the angles is measured to be 36 degrees is 54 degrees.

Let's understand the solution in detail.

**Explanation:**

We use the property of the sum of angles of a triangle.

One angle is given to be 36 degrees.

We know one of the angles in a right triangle is always 90 degrees.

Therefore, let the remaining angle be x.

Hence, x + 90 + 36 = 180 (using the angle sum property of triangles).

Hence, x = 180 - 90 - 36 = 54 degrees.

### Hence, the missing angle of a right triangle whose one of the angles is measured to be 36 degrees, is 54 degrees.
