A traverse with five sides has interior angles with the following measures: 121deg 45 min: 118 deg 25 min; 87 deg 32 min; 98deg 34min, and 113 deg 54 min. Does the traverse close? If not, determne the error in the traverse.
We must be looking at some kind of polygon of 5 sides.
If closed, the sum of the interior angles would be
180(5-2) = 540°
I added them up and got 540° 10'
So the "traverse" is not possible
