360°

 

To see this....draw a diagonal connecting any pair of opposite vertices

 

This will split the trapezoid into two triangles....

 

The interior angles of each triangle will sum to 180°

 

So  ...2 * 180°  =  360°

Mmmmmm.....the question seems to have changed....LOL!!!

 

We need  8 *90  = 720 points on the 8 tests

 

So

 

720 -  5(87)  = 285 remaining

 

So....we need to average

 

285 /3   =   95  on the last three
