180 degrees in a triangle

This diagram shows you very neatly why you have 180 degrees when you add together the interior angles of a triangles. I have labelled the Z angles a and c. The a angles are equal to each other. The c angles are equal to each other. The number of degrees on a straight line is 180 and you can see that a, b and c add up to this. So if you can see how Z angles are equal then you can see how internal angles of a triangle add up to 180 degrees.

After all this writing you may be surprised to read that I am not keen on words. I want you to understand by looking at what is going on. Just look at the diagram and I hope that you can easily explain to yourself the number degrees in a triangle.

That sums it up.
