Lesson Summary:

In this lesson, you'll learn how to use your knowledge of angle measures in a triangle to solve for unknown angles. The key idea is that within a triangle, if you add all the angles, it will add up to 180 degrees, the same as a straight line. You can use this idea to solve problems involving exterior angles and opposite interior angles. By the end of the lesson, you'll be able to apply these concepts to solve any problem in section 4-2.
