The measure of an exterior angle of an isosceles triangle is x degrees. What are the possible angle measures of the triangle in terms of x? Describe all the possible values of x.

At least you got rid of the "z".

An exterior angle is the supplement of the adjacent interior angle. So, x can be anything less than 180° and greater than 0°.

The triangle's interior angle there is thus (180-x)°

The other two angles must add up to (180-x)°
