I was searching for properties of orthocentre, circumcentre, incentre etc., and I came across this statement: the angle formed at the orthocenter is the supplement of the angle at the vertex (/_BAC + /_BHC = 180°). (Here ABC is a triangle where A is the vertex I am talking about and H is the orthocentre.) Can someone kindly prove it? Thanks for your help.

The total of the interior angles in any quadrilateral add to 360 degrees. And, here, two of the angles are right angles.
