We start with two important angles, 90 degrees and 180 degrees. These have special names.

The right angle.

The right angle is exactly 90° and is shown with a little square. The straight line.

The angle of a straight line is exactly 180° We have three other types of angles, which we define using the right angle and straight line.

The acute angle

It is between 0° and 90° (smaller than a right angle) The obtuse angle

It is between 90° and 180°

(Between a right angle and straight line) The reflex angle

It is between 180° and 360°
