## Which angles can be made by ruler and compass?

Which of the following angles is possible to construct with the help of a ruler and a pair of compasses? Option A :42.5°

## How many angles we can make with compass?

On other pages there are instructions for constructing angles of 30°, 45°, 60° and 90°. By combining them you can construct other angles….Adding angles.

To make | Combine angles |
---|---|

120° | 30° + 90° or 60° + 60° |

135° | 90° + 45° |

150° | 60° + 90° |

## How do you make all angles with a compass?

We can construct a 90º angle either by bisecting a straight angle or using the following steps. Step 1: Draw the arm PA. Step 2: Place the point of the compass at P and draw an arc that cuts the arm at Q. Step 3: Place the point of the compass at Q and draw an arc of radius PQ that cuts the arc drawn in Step 2 at R.

## How do you construct a 75 degree angle with a ruler and a compass?

How to Construct 75 degree Angle

- Step 1: Draw a line segment with endpoint O and A.
- Step 2: Draw an arc with O as centre cutting the line segment OA at point B with a compass.
- Step 3: Keeping the radius same, Draw an arc with B as centre cutting the arc at C.

## Which angle is 75 degree?

Answer: acute angle-an angle between 0 and 90 degrees. right angle-an 90 degree angle. obtuse angle-an angle between 90 and 180 degrees.

## What is angle and its parts?

An angle is a figure formed by two rays meeting at a common point. Symbol for an angle is ∠. The common point is called its vertex of the angle. Thus an angle has three parts one vertex and two sides. An angle is generally named by three consecutive alphabets such as A, B and C or X, Y and Z.

## What you need to know about angles?

Properties of Angles Angles are measured in degrees, which is a measure of circularity, or rotation. A full rotation, which would bring you back to face in the same direction, is 360°. A half-circle is therefore 180°, and a quarter-circle, or right angle, is 90°. Two or more angles on a straight line add up to 180°.

## What is Angle simple words?

When two straight lines come together, they make an angle. The two lines are called the sides of the angle, and they meet at a point. An angle indicates the space between its sides, or the amount of rotation needed to make one side coincide the other.
