Angle of Overlap

Stage: 3 Short Challenge Level: Challenge Level:1
 


$\angle CBE = (180-75-60)^{\circ} = 45 ^{\circ}$
$\angle DEB= (180-65-60)^{\circ}= 55 ^{\circ}$
$\angle GHB= (45+55)^{\circ} = 100^{\circ}$ (exterior angle of a triangle)
$\angle HGC = (100-60)^{\circ} = 40^{\circ}$ (exterior angle of a triangle)
