    So if all three angles are 180 and the right angle is 90, what is the sum of the two acute angles of a right triangle?

    Well I don't know what to say. 45+90 is NOT 180

    ok. good. I am thinking of three numbers. The total of the three numbers is 10. One of the numbers is 3. What is the sum of the remaining two numbers?

    How can you possibly know that? Why couldn't they be 4 and 3? How about 6 and 1? Or maybe 2 and 5?

    3+6+1 also works but I guess there are many ways.

    But one of the numbers is 3. What is the SUM of the other 2?

    Obviously it HAS TO BE 7 because 7+3=10

    So back to the right triangle. One of the angles is 90. What is the SUM of the other 2 angles?
