    Isosceles means all sides are the same right?

    The answer would be 30 degrees, because both angle Z and angle Y have to be 30 (to equal 60).

    It is 60 because 120 is the external angle and since sum of Y + Z is equal to the external angle and Y=Z since triangle is isosceles,therefore Z = 60.
