Is it possible to create a triangle that the interior angles do not add up to 180 degrees?

## Notice when the sides of the angles are adjacent and the vertices meet at one point, they form a straight angle.

What is the measure of a straight angle?

## Take Note

Triangle Sum Theorem: The sum of the angle measures of a triangle is 180 degrees.

## Take Note:

Polygon angle sum theorem: The sum of the measures of the interior angles of a convex polygon with n sides is (n-2)180o
