Basics of angles

This page covers the following topics:

1. Introduction to angles
2. Angles at a point, on a straight line

At a point where two lines meet or cross, an angle will be created. Angles can be labelled and written using letters as shown.

Introduction to angles

The angles around a point add up to 360ยฐ and angles on a straight line add up to 180ยฐ.

Angles at a point, on a straight line

1
