We need to remember that ALL triangles (right triangles, obtuse triangles, and acute triangles), their interior angles ALWAYS add up to 180 degrees.
Also, two angles that are adjacent to each other (next to each other), that form a straight line, also add up to 180 degrees. We see this when a side of a triangle is extended. The interior angle and exterior angle add up to 180 degrees.
We already know our triangle angle theorem, which is the three interior angles of any triangle add up to 180 degrees.
Now we have our straight angle theorem which states that any straight line will also equal 180 degrees.
In the video, Mr. Parks goes over a couple of the examples in lesson 14 covering how to find exterior and interior angles of a triangle.
Here is the IXL target that coordinates with exterior angles of triangles in lesson 14 of module 2.
