Right Angle (Quarter-Turn) – Two rays that connect to form a square corner.
Straight Angle (Half Turn) – Two rays that connect to form a straight line.
Acute Angle – An angle with a measure less than a right angle (half turn)
Obtuse Angle – An angle with a measure greater than a right angle but less than a straight angle.
Reflex Angle – An angle with a measure greater than a straight angle.
Note that an acute or obtuse also has a reflex angle on the outside of its arms.
The following figures show the different types of angles: Right angle, Straight angle, Acute angle, Obtuse angle and Reflex angle. Scroll down the page for more examples and solutions.
