See explanation.

#### Explanation:

If a triangle is isosceles then it has 2 identical angles and the third different one. So in the given example we have to check 2 cases:

I. **The given angle is opposite to the base**

Then we have the angles:

To calcu;late

So the angles are:

**II. The given angle is one of the angles at the base**

Then the angles are

The angles are:
