## 1-4: Measuring Angles

### Parts of an Angle

• An angle is formed by two rays with the same endpoint.

• The rays are the sides of the angle and the endpoint is the vertex of the angle.

• The interior of an angle is the region containing all points between the sides of the angle.

• The exterior of an angle is the region containing all points outside the angle.

### Naming an Angle

• 3 Ways to name an angle

1. by its vertex (A)

2. by a point on each ray

and the vertex

(BAC or CAB),

3. by a number (1).

*Note: When using 3 points to name an angle, the vertex must go in the middle!

### Naming Angles

• What are two other names for 1?

• What are two other names for KML?

### Measuring Angles

• One way to measure the size of an angle is in degrees.

• To say that the measure of A is 62, you would write mA = 62.

Protractor Postulate: Consider OB and point A on one side of OB. Every ray of the form OA can be paired one to one with a real number from 0 to 180.

### Types of Angles

• You can classify angles according to their measures.

### Measuring and Classifying Angles

• What are the measures of LKN, JKL, and JKN?

• Classify each as acute, right, obtuse, or straight.

### Congruent Angles

• Angles with the same measure are congruent angles.

• This means that if mA= mB, then A B (and vice versa).

• You can mark angles with arcs to show they are congruent.
