2. Starter Copy the diagram, then determine x. 55° 55° 33° 192° 33° 136° 11° 70° x° 114° 44° 44° 22° 11° 22° ? x = 66°

3. Laws of Angles a a a a a a Opposite angles ? Alternate angles ? Corresponding angles ? Bro Tip: When asked to give a justification in an exam for how you determined an angle, write one of the above – NOT “Z angles” or “F angles”. You won’t get the mark.

4. Quick Exercises Q1 ? 74° Q2 a = 65°, b = 103°, c = 38° c b 93° a a 77° a = 87°, b = 74° ? 115° b° Q3 Q4 The two squares are congruent. Q5 50° 68° y c 150 x 85 70° a c = 20° ? a = 136° ? x = 150°, y = 95° ?

5. Angles in Polygons An exterior angle of a polygon is an angle between the line extended from one side, and an adjacent side. Which of these are exterior angles of the polygon? ? ? NO YES ? NO

6. Angles in Polygons To defeat Kim Jon Il, Matt Damon must encircle his pentagonal palace. What angle does Matt Damon turn in total? 360° ? ! The sum of the exterior angles of any polygon is 360°. Click to Start Damonimation

7. Angles in Polygons If the pentagon is regular, then all the exterior angles are clearly the same. Therefore: Exterior angle of pentagon = 360 / 5 = 72° Interior angle of pentagon = 180 – 72 = 108° ? ?

8. Angles in Polygons ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? Bonus Question: What is the largest number of sides a shape can have such that its interior angle is an integer? 360 sides. The interior angle will be 179°. ?

9. Angles in Polygons Example GCSE Question ? Interior angle of hexagon = 180° – (360°/6) = 60° Interior angle of octagon = 180° – (360°/8) = 135° x = 360° – 120° – 135° = 105°

10. Angles in Polygons Copy the diagram and answer. ? Given that B has interior angle 60: Interior angle of A = (360 – 60)/2 = 150 Exterior angle of A = 30 So A has 360 / 30 = 12 sides

11. Sum of Interior Angles We know how to find the interior angle of a regular polygon. But can we find the total angle if the polygon is not regular? n sides We could split the shape up into n – 2 triangles. Now noticing that the interior angles of each triangle form the interior angles of the overall polygon, the total interior angle must be 180(n – 2) ! Total interior angle = 180(n – 2) ?
