Problem: Let A, B, C be three non-collinear points. Let D, E, F be points on the respective interiors of segments BC, AC and AB. Let θ, φ and ψ be the measures of the respective angles ∠BFC, ∠CDA and ∠AEB. Prove IAS(ABC) < θ +φ + ψ < 540 - IAS(ABC).(IAS means internal angle sum). Now im supposed to use the external angle inequality which is the measure of an exterior angle of a triangle is greater than that of either opposite interior angle. Not sure how to do it. Ive been struggling for hours with it. Oh i forgot to mention this is still in absolute geometry so we cant use that the the angles of a triangle add up to 180*.
