That's just an example. But for regular polygons, the interior + exterior angles = 180.

So if the exterior angles are 120 then the interior must be 60.

And like hero said, 360 divided by the exterior angle measurement gives you the number of sides or angles. So 360/120 = 3 so the sum of the interior angles must be 60x3.

180 degrees?

Yeah. Cause only triangles have 60 degree interior angles.

And triangles have 180 degrees inside them.
