| Since the sum of the degree measures of the angles of the parallelogram is 144, this is the sum of opposite acute angles. Then the acute angle is:

Angle 1 = 144/2 = 72.

The sum of the adjacent angles of the parallelogram is 180. Then the obtuse angle is:

Angle 2 = 180 – 72 = 108.

Answer: The angles of the parallelogram are 72 and 108.
