Angles On a Point (6)

Investigate, with and without digital technologies, angles at a point. Use results to find unknown angles (ACMMG141)

LO: To identify angles on a point
Know:

  • How to use a protractor to measure angles.

Understand:

  • That all angles on a point add up to 360 degrees.

Do:

  • I can find the angles on a point.

Angles Around a Point

Angles around a point always adds up to 360 degrees!

We can use reasoning to help solve angle around the point questions. Since we know that angles around a point has to add up to 360 degrees, if 240 is taken up from 1 section then we can subtract 240 from 360 which will give me the remaining piece.

360 – 240 = 120

In this case x = 120 degrees.
