Classification of Angles
On the basis of degree measurements the angles are classified.
Acute angle – An angle whose measure is more than 00 and less
than 900 is called an acute angle.
Example - ∠CBA is an acute angle.
∠CBA = 600
Right angle – An angle whose measure is 900 is called a right angle.
Example – ∠AOB is a right angle.
∠AOB = 900
Obtuse angle – An angle whose measure is more than 900 and less
than 1800 is called an obtuse angle.
Example - ∠DOQ is an obtuse angle.
∠DOQ = 1200
2. Straight Angle – An angle whose measure is equal to 1800 is called
a straight angle.
Example - ∠XOY is a straight angle.
∠XOY = 1800
Reflex Angle – An angle whose measure is more than 1800 and less
than 3600 is called a reflex angle.
Example - ∠RST is a reflex angle.
∠RST = 2200
Complete Angle – An angle whose measure is equal to 3600 is
called a complete angle.
Example - One complete rotation around P R S
a point P makes 3600 angle.
Here ∠SPR = 3600
Combination of Angles
Complementary Angles – Two angles are complementary if their
sum is equal to 900.
Example - ∠ABC = 600 , ∠CBD = 300 A
Here ∠ABC + ∠CBD = 600 + 300 = 900 C
So ∠ABC and ∠CBD are Complementary
Angles. B D
3. Supplementary Angles – Two angles are supplementary if their
sum is equal to 1800.
Example - ∠BOA = 1200, ∠AOC = 600
Here ∠BOA + ∠AOC = 1200 + 600 = 1800
So ∠BOA and ∠AOC are Supplementary
Angles in Clock
There are 12 equal divisions in a clock
for each hour. We know that one
complete rotation makes 3600 angle.
So angle formed between any two
consecutive numbers in a clock is
360
= 12
= 300
• We can estimate the measure of angle formed by counting
the number of divisions between the hour hand and minute
hand multiply with 300.
• We take the shortest path to do it.
• We can also tell the type of angles formed.
Example - At 8 ‘o’ clock the there are 4 gaps of 300
So the angle formed = 4 x 300 = 1200
