IMHO no issues with that way of solving this problem and consider it to be a very very elegant way of solving the problem in least amount of time....

Consider the case here -

In the triangle -

42 + m + n = 180

So, m + n = 138

No go for solving the circles

(a+b+c+42) = ( m + d + e + f ) = (n + g + h + i ) = 360

(a+b+c+42) + ( m + d + e + f ) + (n + g + h + i ) = 360 + 360 + 360

a+b+c+42 +m + d + e + f + n + g + h + i = 1080

a+ b + c + ( m + n ) + d + e + f + g + h + i = 1038

a+ b + c + 138 + d + e + f + g + h + i = 1038

a+ b + c + d + e + f + g + h + i = 900

Hope this helps.....

Re: In the figure above, what is the sum of the nine angles labeled with [#permalink]
a + b = 180
d + e = 180
h + i = 180
c +42 = 180

(180-f) + (180-g)+42 = 180
f+g -42= 180

a+b+c+d+e+f+g+h+i = 180 * 5 = 900 Ans D.

Sum of angles at each edge = 360*3 = 1080
Sum of interior angles of triangle = 180
Sum of rest of the angles = 1080-180=900. Option D

Angles in a straight line = 180.
Opposite angles are equal.
