angles consistent two rays that share the same endpoint (vertex). The two rays are the sides of the angle.
acute angle any angle that is less than 90° but greater than 0°
obtuse angle any angle is greater than 90° but less than 180°
right angle any angle measuring exactly 90° two lines that meet at a right angle are said to be perpendicular
complementary angles when two angles are measured the sum of their degrees is equal to 90°
supplementary angles when two angles are measured the sum of their degrees is equal to 180°
