its printed lines are parallel to the sides of the board. A pair of angles opposite each other, formed by two intersecting straight lines that form an "X"-like shape, are called vertical angles or opposite angles or vertically opposite angles. The slope of a line is called the gradient. the nails are at equal heights and on the line. The interior angles of a triangle always add up to 180° while the exterior angles of a triangle are equal to the sum of the two interior angles that are not adjacent to it. or less - if you can, shape the block into a cone. 9.

The sum of the measures of the angles of the triangle is 180°. Sometimes we can determine a missing angle because we know that the sum must be a certain value. Just like regular numbers, angles can be added to obtain a sum, perhaps for the purpose of determining the measure of an unknown angle. finger against the bottom scale. 3.
