In these lessons, we will learn the following:
In geometry, an angle consists of two rays that share the same endpoint. The point where the rays intersect is called the vertex of the angle. The two rays are called the sides of the angle.
You can name an angle by specifying three points: two on the rays and one at the vertex.
The angle below may be specified as angle ABC or ∠ABC. The vertex point is always given in the middle.
How to name an angle?
The vertex is the point where the two rays meet to form an angle.
Angles can be named in three ways:

The sum of angles around a point will always be 360 degrees.
In the diagram above, the sum of the angles is 70° + 55° + 50° + 65° + 120° = 360°
Example 1: Given the diagram below, determine the value of the angle a.
Step 1: Get the sum of the known angles.
30° + 65° + 150° + 73° = 318°
Step 2: Subtract sum of known angles from 360°
360° – 318° = 42°
Answer: Angle a is 42°
