8-17.

The exterior angles of a quadrilateral are labeled a, b, c, and d in the diagram below. Find the measures of a, b, c, and d and then find the sum of the exterior angles. Homework Help ✎

The missing exterior angles each form a straight angle with an interior angle.
What is the measure of a straight angle?

You will need to find the angle that forms a linear pair with ∠d.
If a quadrilateral can be made into two triangles, what is the sum of the interior angles of a quadrilateral?

a = 87º, b = 83°, c = 96° d = 94º,
a + ∠b +∠c + ∠d = 360°
