An interior angle is located within the boundary of a polygon. The sum of all of the interior angles can be found using the formula S = (n - 2)*180. It is also possible to calculate the measure of each angle if the polygon is regular by dividing the sum by the number of sides.
How do you find the angle?
- Step 1 The two sides we know are Opposite (300) and Adjacent (400).
- Step 2 SOHCAHTOA tells us we must use Tangent.
- Step 3 Calculate Opposite/Adjacent = 300/400 = 0.75.
- Step 4 Find the angle from your calculator using tan-1
How can you measure and classify an angle?
Angles can be either straight, right, acute or obtuse. An angle is a fraction of a circle where the whole circle is 360°. A straight angle is the same as half the circle and is 180° whereas a right angle is a quarter of a circle and is 90°. You measure the size of an angle with a protractor.
