Explore: Compare the measures of , .

Plan: To compare the angle measures use the properties and theorems of real numbers.

Solve: Compare .

Since is an exterior angle. By the exterior angle theorem the measure of is

greater than the measure of either of its corresponding remote interior angles.

So, .

Compare .

Again, by the exterior angle theorem the measure of is

greater than the measure of either of its corresponding remote interior angles.

So, .

Check: is greater than the measures of . Thus, is the greastest measure.
