acute angle
An acute angle is an angle less than 90° which can appear sharp.

acute angle

For example. . 3 + 4 = 7.3 add To put numbers together.

3 + 7 + 8 = 18 (addends) (sum) . For example.4 addend Any number which is added to obtain the sum.

B. AB and BC are adjacent because they have a common vertex. Adjacent sides of a triangle have a common vertex.6 adjacent Next to. a c b .

7 Algebra Part of Mathematics that involves reasoning by the use of symbols to discover unknown values. . x + 10 = 26. For example. x=16.
