Measuring angles

Measuring Angles

Angle – formed by two rays with the same endpoint.

The rays are the sidesof the angle.

The endpoint is the vertexof the angle.


Vocabulary

Vocabulary

  • Acute angle – 0 <x < 90

  • Right angle – x = 90

  • Obtuse angle– 90 < x < 180

  • Straight angle – x = 180

  • Congruent angles– angles with the same measure


Vocabulary continued

Vocabulary Continued …

  • Vertical angles – two angles whose sides are opposite rays.

  • Adjacent angles – two coplanar angles with a common side, a common vertex, and no common interior points.

  • Complementary angles – two angles whose measures have a sum of 90.

  • Supplementary angles – two angles whose measures have a sum of 180.


Postulate 1 7 protractor postulate

Postulate 1 – 7 Protractor Postulate

  • Let ray OA and ray OB be opposite rays in a plane. Ray OA, ray OB and all the rays with endpoint O that can be drawn on one side of line AB can be paired with the real numbers from 0 to 180 so that

  • a. Ray OA is paired with 0 and ray OB is paired with 180.

  • b. If ray OC is paired with x and ray OD is paired with y, then m < COD = lx – yl.


Postulate 1 8 angle addition postulate

Postulate 1-8Angle Addition Postulate

  • If point B is in the interior of < AOC, then the

    m <AOB + m < BOC = m < AOC

  • If < AOC is a straight angle, then the m < AOB + m < BOC = 180.
