Hi members of MMF, My father almost had to force me this week to let me do geometry. I never liked it much, however, it's quite a fun to do them as I reckon slowly. I already had a whole reading of the geometry book by now, and after that, I asked my father that how much tight upper bounds can we get for the sum of three angles of a triangle without getting introduced to the parallels? I haven't seriously tried it yet, but a bound of 270 degrees is obvious since the sum of two angles of a triangle must be smaller than 180 degrees. Just write down the best bound you can find but not the method, Balarka .

How about the 270° you've already mentioned?
