Two straight lengths of wire are placed on the ground, forming vertical angles. If the measure of one angles formed is 72 degrees, what are the measures of the other three angles. Explain your answer.

My answer-- Vertical angles are congruent and if the measure of 1 of the angles is 72 degrees and straight lines equal 180 degrees you have to subtract 72 from 180 which equals 108. So the measures of the other three angles are 108, 108 and 72.
