    is it (8-2) x 180

    answer divided by 8 gives you how much is each interior angle

    Then since it's A , B , C

    You just add the three interior angels together?

    No. When it says "Angle ABC" it does not mean you add up the angles A+B+C. What it means is that if you connect with a straight line the points A and B, then B and C, the angle they're referring to is the one that is created between the two lines.

    Applying it to this question, angle ABC is referring to one of the interior angles. You found its size, so question done.

    Ratherthan trying to remember the sum of the internal angles it is MUCH easier to remember external angles always add to 360. Try this approach.

    OK.

    I bet creative approaches are not advised at GCSE either?
