If the outer angle C is 123, then the inner angle is 180-123=57. Since the triangle is isosceles, angle A=C=57. The sum of the angles of a triangle is 180. 180-2*57=66.
Answer: 66.

since the outer corner is adjacent to the angle DIA, then the angle DIA=180-123=57
and we know that angle BAC and angle DAB are equal, then BAC is also equal to 57 degrees
and to find ABC you need 180-(57+57)=180-144=66 degrees
The answer is 66 degrees

Solution of triangles in Non-Euclidean geometry with restrictions
In triangle A B C , A B > A C. D is a point on AB such that A D = A C.
Prove that A D C = B + C 2 and B C D = C B 2 .
Solving this problem in Euclidean geometry is very easy. But how can it be solved with the following restrictions?
1) Parallel postulate (i.e. properties of parallel lines ) cannot be used.
2) Theorems proved using properties of parallel lines cannot be used.
3) The problem has to be solved the way euclidean geometry problems are solved. Cartesian Geometry cannot be used.
If not solvable, why cannot be?
