### MEAP Preparation - Grade 6 Mathematics4.13 Triangle Sum Theorem

 "The sum of the measures of the angles of a triangle is 180°". In ABC, mÐA + mÐb + mÐc = 1800 In the above triangle the sum of three angles is: 70 + 60 + 50 = 1800 Examples: In ABC, ÐA = 80° and ÐB = 70°, find ÐC = ? Solution: ÐA + ÐB = 80° + 70° = 150°. But Ð A + ÐB + ÐC = 180°. Therefore, ÐC = 180 ° - 150° = 30°. If the measures of the three angles of a triangle are x-2, x+6 and x+8, find them. The sum of the measures of the three angles x-2 + x+6 + x+8 = 3x+12. But the sum of the measures of the three angles of a triangle = 180°. Therefore, 3x+12 = 180°; 3x = 180 - 12 = 168. x = 168/3 = 56°. Therefore, x- 2 = 56-2 = 54°. Also x+6 = 56 + 6 = 62°. and x+8 = 56 + 8 = 64°. So, the measures of the angles are 54° 62° and 64°. Directions: Answer the following questions. 1) Prove triangle sum theorem. 2) Prove the corollary to the triangle sum theorem: The acute angles of a right triangles are complementary. 3) Draw the triangles with the following measures, use a protractor to measure angles : 600-600-600 triangle, 500-700-600 triangle, 400- 500- 900 triangle 300- 600- 900 triangle 450- 450- 900 triangle 200- 500- 1800 triangle 1200- 200- 400 triangle 1400- 100- 300 triangle 1600- 100- 100 triangle 4) Draw 5 triangles and measure the interior angles using a protractor and prove that the sum of the measures is 180 degrees.
