Find : p + q + r + s + t + u

Let the angles of center triangle formed inside big triangle be x, y and z
=> x+y+z=180
Now as Sum of angles on 1 side of straight line = 180

=> p+u+x=180
=>q+r+y=180
=>s+t+z=180
adding all 3.. p+q+r+s+t+u+(x+y+z)= 540
p+q+r+s+t+u = 540 -(x+y+z) = 540-180 =360

There are 3 smaller triangles(∆ADE,∆BDF and ∆CEF) each which has a third angle(unmarked) - A,B and C
A + B + C = 180 degree(sum of the three angles of the triangle ABC total 180)

Similarly each of the smaller triangles also has a sum of angles equal to 180.
p + q + r + s + t + u + A + B + C = 540
p + q + r + s + t + u = 540 - 180 = 360(Option D)

A + B + C = 180
[180-(r+s) ] + [180-(q+p)] + [180 - (t+u)] = 180
3(180) - 180 = r+s +p+q+t+u
2(180) = r+s +p+q+t+u
=360
option D

A, B, and C are interior angles of the larger ∆ ABC

So A + B + C = 180

(A + B + C) can be used to find p + q + r + s + t + u

Angles in each small triangle (yellow, purple, green) also sum to 180.

From diagram, write the equations -- and add them

r + s + A = 180
p + q + B = 180
t + u + C = 180____________________
r + s + A + p + q + B + t + u + C = 540, or

p + q + r + s + t + u + (A + B + C) = 540, or

p + q + r + s + t + u + 180 = 540

p + q + r + s + t + u = 360

Answer D

We see that the sum of the interior angles is 180. Let’s say each angle within the triangle is 60 degrees. Then s + t = r + q = p + u = 180 - 60 = 120.

So, p + q + r + s + t + u = 360.

Answer: D
