1. Acute Angles – an angle measure less than 90° but more
than 0°
If ∠𝑀 is an acute angle, what are the possible
point C
values of n?
The possible value of n is the following:
point C
 0 °< m∠𝑀 < 90°
 0 °< m∠ (3n -60) °< 90°
ANGLES Answer: 20 < n < 50
An angle is a union of two non-collinear rays with
common endpoint. The two non-collinear rays are the sides
of the angle while the common endpoint is the vertex.
Example: 3. Adjacent angle of ∠ZVW is ∠ 𝑌𝑉𝑍
1. 2 3. 4. Adjacent angle of ∠YVZ is ∠YVX
2. Complementary – it is two angles that has a sum
of their measure exactly 90 °.

2. Example:
Right angles – an angle measure exactly 90° m ∠1 + m ∠2= 90°
Example: 75 °+ 15 °= 90°

## m ∠ABC = 90°, 2. ∠1 and ∠2 are complementary angles. Find the

RIGHT measure of an angle ∠1 when the measure of the ∠2 is 20°.

## 3. Obtuse angles – an angle measure

2. Exterior angles – a two angles outside the transversal
∠1 when the measure of the ∠2 is 35°.
The exterior angles are the four angles formed that lie
outside the transversal.
Answer: m ∠ 2 = 35°.
Because vertical angle is congruent.
Example:

TRANSVERSAL

## Transversal- A transversal line intersects two or more lines,

each at a different point. Because a transversal line crosses
at least two other lines, eight or more angles are created.
Example of exterior:
∠𝐴, ∠𝐵, ∠𝐺, 𝑎𝑛𝑑 ∠𝐻
Example:
3. The alternate interior angles are two interior angles that
lie on opposite sides of a transversal.

Example:

## 1. interior angles – a two angles lie inside the transversal.

Example of interior angles:
 The interior angles are the four angles formed
Angle Alternate interior angles
between the lines x and y
∠𝐶 → ∠𝐹
∠𝐷 → ∠𝐸
∠𝐹 → ∠𝐶
∠𝐸 → ∠𝐷
4. The alternate exterior angles are two exterior angles that
lie on opposite sides of the transversal.
Example:
(refer to figure above).
Example of interior angle: Example of exterior:
∠𝐶, ∠𝐷, ∠𝐸, 𝑎𝑛𝑑 ∠𝐹 Angle alternate exterior angles
∠𝐴 → ∠𝐻
∠𝐵 → ∠𝐺
∠𝐻 → ∠𝐴
∠𝐵 → ∠𝐺
5. The corresponding angles are two angles, one interior
and the other exterior, on the same side of the transversal.
