In Triangle PQR, 80 + Q + R = 180
Here, Q + R = 180 - 80 = 100

As SQ and SR are angle bisectors, the angle Q and R will be equally divided '
on both sides. If the angles of the triangle SQR and x and y,

x + y is half of the sum of Q and R, which is \(\frac{100°}{2} = 50\)°

Therefore, the measure of angles QSR = 180° - 50° = 130° (Option D)

D is my answer.

although the question doesnt mention that the bigger triangle is isosceles.. i have assumed it to be isosceles.

Hi pushpitkc,
SR is the angle bisector and not QR. I think it is a typo :-) .

Hi himanshutonu,

You do not need to assume the larger triangle to be isoceles. We do not need the two angle to be equal for their angle bisectors to make angles x + y = 1/2 ( sum of original angle ). This is true for all triangles and not only isoceles.

This is evident from the quoted explanation by pushpitkc.

Best,
Gladi

Hey Gladiator59

Thanks for noticing the typo. I have made the change!
