Solution

It is given that,

∠SPR = 135º and ∠PQT = 110º

∠SPR + ∠QPR = 180º (Linear pair angles)

⇒ 135º + ∠QPR = 180º

⇒ ∠QPR = 45º

Also, ∠PQT + ∠PQR = 180º (Linear pair angles)

⇒ 110º + ∠PQR = 180º

⇒ ∠PQR = 70º

As the sum of all interior angles of a triangle is 180º, therefore, for ΔPQR,

∠QPR + ∠PQR + ∠PRQ = 180º

⇒ 45º + 70º + ∠PRQ = 180º

⇒ ∠PRQ = 180º − 115º

⇒ ∠PRQ = 65º
