Irregular Polygon

Regular polygon is a polygon that has all angles equal and all sides equal. So, regular polygon has a = b = c = d = e, and ∠v = ∠w =∠x = ∠y = ∠z Definition of Irregular Polygon Irregular polygon is a polygon that does not have all sides equal and all angles

Angles of Elevation & Depression

Angles of Elevation Angle of elevation is the angle from the horizontal upward to an object. An observer’s line of sight would be above horizontal line. The angle of elevation is angle formed by a horizontal line & line of sight up to an object when the object is above the line. When you see

Translation

Definition Translation means Moving without rotating, resizing or anything else, just moving. To Translate a shape Every point of the shape must move: the same distance in the same direction. Learn More Angles Acute Angles Obtuse Angles Supplementary Angles Geometry Index

Acute Angles

An Acute Angle is less than 90° More Examples of Acute angles Which Angle? Remember to look carefully at which angle you are being asked to name. The acute angle is the small angle which is less than 90°. The larger angle you will have a Reflex Angle (more than 180° but less than 360°)

Obtuse Angles

An Obtuse Angle is more than 90° but less than 180° Examples More Examples of obtuse angles Which is Obtuse Angle? Remember to look carefully at which angle you are being asked to name. The obtuse angle is the smaller angle. It is more than 90° and less than 180°. The larger angle is a

Consecutive Interior Angles

Definitions When two lines are crossed by another line (Transversal), Consecutive Interior Angles are the pairs of angles on one side of the transversal, but inside the two lines. The 2 angles in purple (d and e) make one pair of consecutive interior angles, and the other 2 angles in red (c and f) make another

Parallel Lines

Lines are parallel if they are always the same distance apart (called “equidistant“), and will never meet. Definition of Parallel Lines Parallel lines in geometry are lines in a plane which do not meet. They don’t intersect each other at any point. By extension, a line & a plane, or 2 planes, in 3D Euclidean

Definition An angle measures the amount of turn Names of Angles As the Angle Increases, the Name Changes: Type of Angle Description Illustration Acute Angle is less than 90°   Right Angle is 90° exactly         Obtuse Angle is greater than 90° butless than 180°    Straight Angle is 180° exactly   Reflex Angle is

Cuboid

Cuboids are familiar objects you encounter in daily life numerous times. Cuboids are essentially boxes, formed exclusively from rectangles. These familiar shapes are also known as rectangular prisms. Definition of Cuboid The cube is a 3D structure which is formed when 6 identical squares bind to each other in an enclosed form. Remember all cubes

Supplementary Angles

Definition 2 Angles are Supplementary when they add up to 180 degrees. Supplement comes from Latin supplere, to complete or “supply” what is needed. These two angles (120° and 60°) are Supplementary Angles, because they add up to 180° and make a straight angle. But the angles don’t have to be together. These 2 angles
