Find one more angle to crack the case

There’s only one unknown angle left on the diagram. Once you’ve

Find this last mystery angle to complete your investigation

and prove that Benny was the shooter.

How does it fit in with what you’ve already found out?

There are 2 different ways to find this

mystery angle—you might have done either one.

1)

2)

Angle c is opposite

this angle here

Angles in a triangle add up to 180º

And vertical angles are equal,

so 81º + 86º + ? = 180º

so ? = 18º

? = 180º - 81º - 86º = 13º

But this doesn’t fit with the

triangle angles:

But this doesn’t fit with the 18º

angle it’s opposite. They should be

equal.

18º + 81º + 86º = 185º

They should add up to 180º.
