Step 1

**Known fact:**

If two sides of any triangle is equal, then their opposite angles are also equal.

The sum of the measures of all three angles in any triangle is 180˚

Step 2

**Calculation:**

Let the base angle in degree be *x*. then other base angle also *x*.

The vertex angle is 40º . Then calculate the meas...
