Q. Which of the following statements is true?
The sum of all interior angles in a triangle is equal to the sum of all the exterior angles of the triangle.
The sum of all exterior angles in a triangle is always equal to two times the sum of the interior angles in the triangle.
The sum of all interior angles in a triangle varies depending on the triangle.
The product of all the interior angles in a triangle is always 180.
None of the above.
Q. Under what circumstances are equilateral triangles acute?
Only when the side lengths of the equilateral triangles are less than 90
Only when all the interior angles of the equilateral triangle add up to less than 180°
Only when the side lengths are smaller than the angle measurements
Q. Under what circumstances are isosceles triangles equilateral?
Only when two sides of the triangle are congruent to each other
Only when any two sides of the triangle are congruent to each other
Only when the isosceles triangle is right
Q. According to the Exterior Angle Theorem, which of the following is true?
All exterior angles in a triangle add up to 180°
The measure of any given exterior angle equals the sum of the measures of all the interior angles

29°, 44°, 73°
29°, 73°, 78°
29°, 44°, 107°
29°, 73°, 107°
29°, 78°, 107°
