Angles and degrees question

Hello everyone,

I'm busy studying for the SAT & have ran into a problem that I do not quite remember in Geometry from my freshman year. I know it's an easy one to solve, but I can't figure out where to start. Can I have a little guidance on this? :

I've modified your sketch a little bit. The numbers in red are : **180°**

Determine the value of a;

afterwards use the property that

$\displaystyle b = (a+10)^\circ$
