# ANGLES

CONTENT

1. Naming of Angles (acute, right, complementary, obtuse, straight, supplementary reflex angles and angle at a point)
2. Units and Measurement of Angles
3. Angles between Lines (vertically opposite, angle on a straight line and angle at a point)
4. Angles between Parallel Lines (adjacent, alternate and corresponding angles)

## Names of Angles

As the angle increases, the name changes:

### Supplementary Angles

Two angles are supplementary when they add up to $$180$$ degrees. They don’t have to be next to each other, just so long as the total is $$180$$ degrees.

Examples:

$$60^o$$ and $$120^o$$ are supplementary angles.
$$93^o$$ and $$87^o$$ are supplementary angles.

### Complementary Angles

Two angles are complementary when they add up to $$90$$ degrees (a right angle).
They don’t have to be next to each other, just so long as the total is $$90$$ degrees.

Examples:

$$60^o$$ and $$30^o$$ are complementary angles.
$$5^o$$ and $$85^o$$ are complementary angles.

CLASS ACTIVITY

1. Find the angle that is complementary to (a) $$75^o$$ (b) $$105^o$$.
