In geometry, there are three

**types**of**angles**: acute**angle**-an**angle**between 0 and 90 degrees. right**angle**-an 90 degree**angle**. obtuse**angle**-an**angle**between 90 and 180 degrees. straight**angle**-a 180 degree**angle**.

Just so, what are the 5 types of angles?

**Types of Angles - Acute, Right, Obtuse, Straight and Reflex**

- Acute angle.
- Right angle.
- Obtuse angle.
- Straight angle.
- Reflex angle.

**angle**is called the arms or sides of the

**angle**. Thus an

**angle**has

**three parts**one vertex and two sides. An

**angle**is generally named by

**three**consecutive alphabets such as A, B and C or X, Y and Z. An

**angle**formed by rays AB and BC at vertex B is denoted by ∠ABC.

Just so, what is an angle simple definition?

**Angle**. **Definition**: A shape, formed by two lines or rays diverging from a common point (the vertex).

**Angles** such as 270 **degrees** which are more than 180 but less than **360 degrees** are **called** reflex **angles**. A **360**° **angle** is **called** a complete **angle**. Drawing **angles**, **angle** measurement need a protractor.
