If the image represented the corner of a cube, then x=y=z=90 degree. Hence x+y+z=270.

If the image represented three angles in a plane, then x+y+z=180.

Hence 270 - 180 = 90.

If three angles of a corner of a cube = 90+90+90 = 270
If three angles in a plane = 360

how much less than it would be if the figure represented three angles in a plane
360-270 = 90
