**Explanation:**

**A**

**Additional Topics (triangles) MEDIUM**

It helps to mark the measures of the other two interior angles to the triangle as *c*° and *d*°, because we know something about these angles.

Since angles in a triangle must have a sum of 180°:

*c* + *d* + 32 = 180

Subtract 32:

*c* + *d* = 148

Since angles in a linear pair have a sum of 180°:

*a* + *c* = 180

*b* + *d* = 180

Add previous two equations:

*a* + *b* + *c* + *d* = 360

Subtract c 1 d 5 148:
