In the adjacent figure π + π + π + π = πππΒ° Vertical angles are equal to each other. In the adjacent figure π = π and π = π The sum of angles on a straight line is 180Λ.

Sum of all internal angles of a triangle is 180 degrees i.e. π + π + π = πππΒ° 2. Sum of any two sides of a triangle is greater than the third i.e. π + π > π or π + π > π or π + π > π 3. The largest interior angle is opposite the largest side; the smallest interior angle is opposite the smallest side i.e. if π© > πͺ β π > π 4. The exterior angle is supplemental to the adjoining interior angle i.e. π + π = πππΒ°. Since π + π + π = πππΒ° it follows that π = π + π 5. The internal bisector of an angle bisects the opposite side in the ratio of the other two sides.

In the adjacent figure angle π = ππ Every angle subtended at the circumference by the diameter of a circle is a right angle (90Λ). In a cyclic quadrilateral, the opposite angles are supplementary i.e. they add up to 180Λ.
