Angle Bisector
Angles can be measured using degrees and radians.
Vertex
Angle Measures and Angle Bisectors
Classifying angles by measurement
Angle
1. Find
x
if
ABC
is bisected by BD.
2. Use the figure to find the measure of the angle
ZXY
if angle
WXY
measures
138°
and angle
WXZ
is a right angle.
A

Sides
Rays
AB

and
BC
are connected by a common
endpoint B.
The figure formed is called an
angle
.
common endpoint
two rays
Angles can be named using:
ABC
CBA
or
B
is Vertex
3 letters, which corresponds to the 3 points. The middle letter is the vertex.
a single letter (or number) that corresponds to the vertex
B
or
One full rotation or one complete circle is 360°, then 1° angle is equivalent to 1/360 of a circle.
Example: If angle
A
= 30°, then the measurement can be written as m
A
= 30°
Classification of Angles
Angles can be classified by their angle measurement.
Acute Angle
Right Angle
Obtuse Angle
Straight Angle

A ray that splits the angle in two equal angles is called the
angle bisector
.
PQR
is bisected by
QS
then

This symbol means that the angle is a right angle.
m
ABC
= 90°
BD
is an angle bisector, then it only means that it divides
ABC
into 2 equal angles.

45°
m
ABD
= 45°
m
DBC
= 45°
Substitute m ABD = 4x + 1.
4
x
+ 1
= 45°
Subtract both sides by 1.
4
x
+ 1
- 1
= 45°

4
x
= 44°
Divide both sides by 4.

WXZ +
m
ZXY
Substitute the given values:
138°
=
90°
+ m ZXY
Solve for angle ZXY by subtracting both sides by 90°.
138°
- 90°

=
90°

- 90°
+ m ZXY
Simplify and switch sides.
m

3. Find the measure of angle
EFH
and angle
HFG
, if angle
EFG
is 156°.

m
EFG =
m
EFH +
m
HFG
Substitute the given values.
Identify the given.

m
EFH =

m
HFG =
(5
x -
8)°
156° = (3
x
- 4)° + (5
x
- 8)°
Combine like terms.
156° = 8
x
- 12°
156°
+ 12°
= 8
x
- 12°
+ 12°
8
x
= 168°

8
x
= 21°
Add both sides by 12 .
Simplify and switch sides.
Divide both sides by 8.
Use x = 21 to find m EFH and m HFG.
m
EFG =
(3
x

m
HFG =
(5

m
HFG =
97°
Check by plugging our answers on the equation:
m
EFG =
m
EFH +
m
HFG
156° = 59° + 97°
156° = 156°
This statement is true, then our answers are correct!
