**Reiny**, Monday, June 22, 2009 at 3:27pmin triangle ABC extend BC to form the exterior angle at C, call that x

We know angle A + Angle B + angle C = 180

But angle C + x = 180, (by supplementary angle theorem)

so angle A + angle B + angle C = x + angle C

subtract angle C from both sides

angle A + angle B = x, the exterior angle

Therefore, the exterior angle of a triangle has measure equal to the sum of the measures of the 2 interior angles remote from it
