Answer:Step-by-step explanation: Let ABCD be a quadrilateral. Join AC.

Clearly, ∠1 + ∠2 = ∠A …… (i)

And, ∠3 + ∠4 = ∠C …… (ii)

We know that the sum of the angles of a triangle is 180°.

Angle Sum Property of a Quadrilateral

Therefore, from ∆ABC, we have

∠2 + ∠4 + ∠B = 180° (Angle sum property of triangle)From ∆ACD, we have∠1 + ∠3 + ∠D = 180° (Angle sum property of triangle)

Adding the angles on either side, we get;

∠2 + ∠4 + ∠B + ∠1 + ∠3 + ∠D = 360°

⇒ (∠1 + ∠2) + ∠B + (∠3 + ∠4) + ∠D = 360°

⇒ ∠A + ∠B + ∠C + ∠D = 360° [using (i) and (ii)].

Hence, the sum of all the four angles of a quadrilateral is 360°.Answer:First follow me and second i shall give the answer
