Do you really think we can see this (with our crystal ball)?

•find the measure of one of the interior angles

180(3)/5 =108

•y is NOT the exterior angle

•use the formula:

360-a=2y

*where a= the measurement of 1 of the interior angles which is 108 in this case.

•so it would be:

360-108=2y

252=2y

252/2=y

126=y

•so y=126
