Sum Of Angles In A Star – Challenge From India!

Math
Thanks to Nikhil Patro for suggesting this problem! What is the sum of the corner angles in a regular 5-sided star? What if the star is not regular, what is the sum of corner angles then? There are some neat ways to solve this. I present my favorite methods.

Thanks to all patrons! Special thanks to:
