An angle that is formed inside a triangle by the intersection of its sides, is called an interior angle of a triangle.
A triangle is formed by connecting the endpoints of three line segments as a closed geometric shape. The intersection of every two sides of a triangle forms an angle internally. Hence, the angle is called an interior angle of triangle. It is also called as an internal angle of a triangle.
In a triangle, the three line segments are intersected at three locations on a plane. Hence, three interior or internal angles are formed inside a triangle.
For understanding the concept of internal angles of a triangle, let’s construct a triangle geometrically.
Thus, a triangle, denoted by $\Delta MLN$ is formed geometrically.
In this triangle, $\angle LMN$, $\angle MLN$ and $LNM$ are called interior or internal angles of the triangle.
In this example, the internal angles $\angle LMN$, $\angle MLN$ and $LNM$ are unknown but they can be measured by a protractor.
The interior angles in $\Delta MLN$ are measured that
$(1).\,\,\,$ $LMN \,=\, 42^°$
$(2).\,\,\,$ $MLN \,=\, 56^°$
$(3).\,\,\,$ $LNM \,=\, 82^°$
Geometrically, the sum of interior angles in a triangle is equal to $180^°$.
