Sum of angles is given by the formula (n−2)×180, where n=no.ofsides

So, for triangle n=3, hence sum of angles=180 degree.

A triangle has three angles, one at each vertex, bounded by a pair of adjacent sides. It was unknown for a long time whether other geometries exist, for which this sum is different.

A triangle has three angles, one at each vertex, bounded by a pair of adjacent sides.

Angles between adjacent sides of a triangle are referred to as interior angles in Euclidean and other geometries. Exterior angles can be also defined, and the Euclidean triangle postulate can be formulated as the exterior angle theorem. One can also consider the sum of all three exterior angles, that equals to 360° in the Euclidean case (as for any convex polygon), is less than 360° in the spherical case, and is greater than 360° in the hyperbolic case.
