The sum of the interior angles of a triangle is $180º$. If we add the three angles of any triangle we choose, the result will always be $180º$. This means that if we know the values of two angles of a triangle we can always calculate, with ease, the value of the third one: first we add the two angles we know and then we subtract from $180º$ The result of this subtraction will give us the value of the third angle of the triangle.

For example, given a triangle with two known interior angles of $45º$ and $60º$ degrees, we are asked to discover the measure of the third angle. First we add $45º$ plus $60º$ resulting in $105º$ degrees. Now we subtract $105º$ from $180º$, yielding $75º$ degrees. In other words, the third angle of the triangle equals $75º$ degrees.

The above property is also called the triangle sum theorem, and can help us to solve problems involving the interior angles of a triangle, regardless of whether it is equilateral, isosceles or scalene.
