Here is a way to remember that the angles of a triangle sum to 180 degrees.

Imagine a squat triangle, with two very acute angles and one very obtuse angle. If this triangle is very stout, then the acute angles are ~0 and the obtuse angle is ~180 degrees.

The sum of the measures of the angles in a triangle is 180
