## What is an angle?

**What is an angle?**

An angle indicates the inclination of two lines meeting at a point.

This inclination is expressed in degrees (°). We use small Greek letters to designate an angle:

α: Alpha, β: Beta, γ: Gamma, δ: Delta, ε: Epsilon

**Example: acute angle**

**Step 1:**

Place the triangle with the zero point of the base line (centre) at the apex!

**Step 2:**

Read from the lower leg of the angle (at the base line) from zero in positive direction. Here in the example between 30° and 40° exactly at 35°.

**Example: obtuse angle**

Proceed in the same way as for the acute angle! When reading, however, pay attention to the correct direction and to the size of the value!

Here in the example exactly 140°.

**Example: Overshot angle**

Check whether there is an obtuse angle.

In this case we always measure the opposite angle and calculate the angle we are looking for by calculating 360° minus the opposite angle.

**Here:**

Counter angle = 40°, angle sought = 360° - 40° = 320°!

## The different types of angles

In order to be able to measure and draw angles correctly, it is very important to know the types of angles exactly!

**Pointed angle**

**\(0< \alpha < 90° \)**

**Right angle**

**\( \alpha = 90° \)**

**Blunt angle**

**\(90 < \alpha < 180° \)**

**Stretched angle**

**\( \alpha = 180° \)**

**Overshot angle**

**\(180 < \alpha < 360° \)**

**Full angle 360**

**\( \alpha = 360° \)**
