Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1if the sum of the angles is 180, then A + B + C = 180. Solving for C, you get C=180AB. For the exterior angle, angle DCA is supplementary to angle ACB. So, DCA + ACB = 180. SInce you know angle ACB (simplified to angle C in the first line), you can substitute that DCA+180AB=180. IF you simplify this, you get DCA=A+B
