    R+S+Q=180 60+20+Q=180 Q=180-80=100

    The interior angles of a polygon with n sides add up to (n-2)*180 (degrees). This is a triangle, 3 sides, n = 3, so the sum of the interior angles is (3-2)*180 degrees. You've already got 60+20 = 80 degrees accounted for, so the remaining angle is 180 degrees - 80 degrees = 100 degrees

    With a rectangle, there are 4 sides, so n = 4, and the interior angles add up to 2*180 degrees = 360 degrees.
