In Triangle QRS, QR = RS & angle PRS = 100° Sum of three angle =180

Since QR = RS angle SQR = angle QSR =40

Angle PQS =180 - 40 ==> 140

As PQ = QS

Angle SPQ = Angle PSQ = 20

Hence C

First, we know that QRS is 100 degrees, and that QR=RS.
Since QR=RS, the Triangle QRS is isosceles, and angle RQS = angle QSR
Triangle QRS has the angles: 100, 40, 40 (check that all angles add to 180)
Angles SQR and SQP are complementary and must add up to 180 (a straight line); if SQR=40, then SQP must=140
PQ=QS which means, just as before, Triangle PQS is isosceles, and angle SPQ = angle PSQ
Triangle PQS has the angles 140, 20, 20 (check that all angles add to 180)

The answer is C

Since QR = RS, angle QSR = angle SQR. So we can let angle QSR = n = angle SQR and create the equation:

100 + 2n = 180

2n = 80

n = 40

Thus, angle PQS = 180 - 40 = 140.

Also, since PQ = QS, angle PSQ = angle SPQ. So we can let angle angle PSQ = m = angle SPQ and create the equation:

140 + 2m = 180

2m = 40

m = 20

Answer: C

Angles opposite equal sides are equal.

For ∆ QRS:
• two equal sides (QR = RS)
• small angles opposite those sides are equal
• ∠R = 100. Remaining interior angle degree total: (180-100) = 80°
• \(\frac{80}{2}\) = 40° ( = ∠RQS = ∠QSR)

For ∆PQS:
• two equal sides (PQ = QS)
• small angles opposite those sides are equal
• Large ∠PQS lies on a straight line with a 40° angle
∠PQS = (180-40) = 140
• (180-140) = 40° to be split between ∠QPS and ∠PSQ

∠QPS: measure in degrees is
\(\frac{40}{2}\) = 20° = ∠QPS

∠QPS = 20°

Answer C
