# What is the sum of adjacent angles?

**vertex**. Two angles are said to be

**supplementary angles**if the sum of both the angles is 180

**degrees**. If the two

**supplementary angles**are adjacent to each other then they are called linear pair. Sum of two adjacent

**supplementary angles**= 180

^{o}.

Keeping this in view, what do adjacent angles add up to?

a and b are **adjacent angles**. **Adjacent angles add up to** 180 degrees. Any two **angles** that **add up to** 180 degrees are known as supplementary **angles**.

Beside above, what is adjacent angles and linear pairs? **Adjacent Angles** are two **angles** that share a common vertex, a common side, and no common interior points. If two **angles** form a **linear pair**, the **angles** are supplementary. A **linear pair** forms a straight **angle** which contains 180º, so you have 2 **angles** whose measures add to 180, which means they are supplementary.

Furthermore, what is the adjacent angle?

**Adjacent angles** are two **angles** that have a common vertex and a common side. The vertex of an **angle** is the endpoint of the rays that form the sides of the **angle**. When we say common vertex and common side, we mean that the vertex point and the side are shared by the two **angles**.

How do you measure adjacent angles?

A pair of **adjacent angles** are **angles** that are next to each other. To **find** the sum of **adjacent angles**, add up the **angle** measurements. To **find the measure** of a missing **angle**, **find** the value that, when added to the **angle** you already know, will give you the sum of the pair of **adjacent angles**.
