z= 3rd internal angle of triangle.

Also x + y+ z =180
thus x+ y = 180-z

Ans A

1. Vertical angle

The unnamed angle inside the triangle and z are congruent vertical angles.

Sum of interior angles of a triangle = 180

x + y + z = 180

x + y = 180 - z

2. Adjacent to exterior angle

z is on the same line as an exterior angle of the triangle, call it w, whose measure equals the sum of non-adjacent interior angles x and y.

x + y = w
z + w = 180
Substitute:
z + x + y = 180
x + y = 180 - z

Answer A

Since the unmarked interior angle of the triangle is congruent with the angle measuring z degrees, it also measures z degrees. Since the sum of the three interior angles of a triangle is 180 degrees, we have:

x + y + z = 180

x + y = 180 - z

Answer: A
