sum of two angles of a parallelogram is 100°
so sum of the other two angle should be (360-100)/2 = 130
So mean should be (130+130)/2 = 130

Answer should be C

The sum of interior angles of a quadrilateral is 360 degrees.

Though we are not sure which two angle measures sum to 100, we are asked only for the average (arithmetic mean) of the other two.

There are (360 - 100) = 260 degrees that remain, and two angles.

\(\frac{260}{2}\) = 130

Answer C

A parallelogram’s angles always sum to 360 degrees. If the sum of two angles of a parallelogram is 100 degrees, then the remaining 2 angles must sum to 260 degrees, and so the average of those two angles is 260/2 = 130 degrees.

Answer: C
