# The sum of two angles in a triangle totals 62.5 degrees. What is the other angle's measure?

Mar 6, 2018

${117.5}^{\circ}$

#### Explanation:

The sum of the angles in a triangle is $180$ degrees.

So

$x + 62.5 = 180$

$x = 180 - 62.5$

$x = 117.5$

The other angle is ${117.5}^{\circ}$.

${117.5}^{\circ}$

#### Explanation:

The sum of all the interior
angles of of a triangle $= {180}^{\circ}$

Let the third angle be $x$.

${62.5}^{\circ} + x = {180}^{\circ}$

$x = {180}^{\circ} - {62.5}^{\circ}$

$x = {117.5}^{\circ}$
