Obtuse angles: between 90 and 180 degrees. Acute angles are < 90 degrees
Types of Angles Acute angles are less than 90 degrees Right angles are equal to 90 degrees . [ Looks like letter L ] Obtuse angles are greater than 90 degrees but less than 180 degrees. Straight angles look like lines and are equal to 180 degrees.
Types of Angles Angles are differentiated by the quantify of rotation of the rays as if they were hands of a clock. No rotation is zero degrees and totally straight is 180 degrees. 45 degrees 90 degrees

Did you see the pattern? Total angles = sum of countdown of the smallest angle totals. 2 + 1 = 3 3 + 2 + 1 = 6 4 + 3 + 2 + 1 = 10

Protractor Postulate For on a given plane, choose any point O between A and B. Consider and and all the rays that can be drawn from O on one side of . A O B
Protractor Postulate These rays can be paired with the real numbers from 0 to 180 in such a way that: A O B is paired with 0 and with 180 . 0 180
Protractor Postulate If is paired with x and is paired with y, These rays can be paired with the real numbers from 0 to 180 in such a way that: A O B 0 180 X Y P Q then
Protractor Postulate If is paired with x and is paired with y, These rays can be paired with the real numbers from 0 to 180 in such a way that: A O B 0 180 100 150 P Q then Example = 50

Angle Addition Postulate If point B lies in the interior of then O C B A And
Angle Addition Postulate If is a straight angle and B is any point not on then O C B A
Note: The angle addition postulate is just like the segment addition postulate. When the two angles form a straight line then they are called linear pairs . Euclid referred to this concept as … “ The sum of the parts equals the whole.”

Summary There are 4 types of angles: Angles are 2 rays with a common end point. Acute – less than 90 0 Right = 90 0 Obtuse – between 90 0 and 180 0 Straight = 180 0
Summary 2 Angles are measured with a protractor. Angles can be indicated by numbers, the vertex, or by 3 letter of which the middle letter is the vertex. The Protractor Postulate establishes measuring angles with a protractor. The Angle Addition Postulate establishes the sum of two adjacent angles is indeed the sum of the two angles.
