Types of Angles: The word angle is derived from the Latin word “angulus” which is formed by joining two rays together at a common point. This common point is referred to as a node or vertex. The two rays are referred to as arms. Angle is generally represented by  '∠'. There are various types of angles in geometry. Angles are an important subject of geometry. So this article we will discuss different types of angles.

## Types of Angles

The two arms of the angle combined together differently to form different types of angles, such as angles which is at the same position are called zero angles, angles that are more than 0° but less than 90° are called acute angles, angles that is exactly 90° is called as Right angle, and other angles which discussed in detail below. There are different types of angles, that is-

1. Magnitude
2. Rotation

## Types of Angles Based on Magnitude

Based on Magnitude there are seven different types, these are-

1. Zero Angles
2. Acute Angle
3. Right Angles
4. Obtuse Angle
5. Straight Angle
6. Reflex Angle
7. Complete/Full Angle

## Types of Angles Based on Rotation

Based upon angles based upon Rotation, these are-

1. Positive Angles
2. Negative Angles

### Types of Angles Pairs

Angle Pairs are defined as when two lines share a common endpoint, called a Vertex then an angle is formed between these two lines. There are five different types of angle pairs, that is-

1. Complementary angles
2. Supplementary angles
3. Linear pair
5. Vertically opposite angles
Types of Angles- FAQs

Ans. There are seven types of angles based upon magnitude. They are- Zero angles, Acute Angles, Obtuse Angles, Right Angles, Straight Angles, Reflex Angles and Complete/Full Angles..

Ans. There are two types of angles based on rotation. They are- Positive angles and Negative Angles

Ans. Angle Pairs are defined as when two lines share a common endpoint, called a Vertex then an angle is formed between these two lines. There are five different types of angle pairs, that is- Complementary angles, Supplementary angles, Linear pair, Adjacent angles, Vertically opposite angles

Ans. The Angle is formed when both arms lie between 0° and 90°, that is greater than 0° and less than 90°.

Ans. The Angle is formed when both arms lie between 180° and 360°, that is greater than 180° and less than 360°.
