I think this requires some ingenuity.

In the figure above, what is the value of c in terms of a and b?

Shame on you [#permalink] New post 28 Jul 2003, 09:07
Buzz, easy choices never work with ETS :!:

Shame on you, but no offense :-D .

Have you looked at Princeton Review rule number one?
Never expect easy answer choices.

Pls Let me know if,

c = 360 - a - A - B - 2b (assuming a,b is different from A,B)

If they are the same, then c = 360 - 2a - 3b

In any triangle, sum of the 3 angles is 180 degrees.

I have marked the 3 angles unknow as x, y and z

from the 3 triangles,

y = 180 - a - b
x = 180 - a - b
z = 180 - b - c

Now, x + y + z = 180 (because they together form a straight line which is 180 degrees).

so, 180 - a - b + 180 - a - b + 180 - b - c = 180
=> c = 360 - 2a - 3b

the sum of the angles in a quad = 360

ie

2a + 3b +c = 360

=> c = 360 -2a-3b
