## Homework Equations

all angles of a triangle add up to 180 degrees.

isosceles triangle, has two equivalent sides

## The Attempt at a Solution

I tried using symmetry and found the part in red is [itex]\pi[/itex] - 2[itex]\theta[/itex]

but according to the text, the angle is 2[itex]\theta[/itex]. I am confused on why is is 2[itex]\theta[/itex]
