I think this requires some ingenuity.

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

c = 180┬║ - a - b. What were the choices?

Buzz, easy choices never work with ETS

Shame on you, but no offense .

Have you looked at Princeton Review rule number one?

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

I got c=360-3b-2a

Okay guys, I'm getting c=2a+b-180 (assuming A & B mean a & b)

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
