Question_3

(Figure not drawn to scale).

Possible Answers:

Correct answer:

Explanation:

The angles containing the variable  all reside along one line, therefore, their sum must be .

Because  and  are opposite angles, they must be equal.

Example Question #1 : Angles

Are  and  complementary angles?

Possible Answers:

Not enough information

No

Yes

Maybe

Correct answer:

Yes

Explanation:

Complementary angles add up to . Therefore, these angles are complementary.

Example Question #2 : Angles

Possible Answers:

Correct answer:

Explanation:

Two complementary angles add up to .

Therefore, .

Example Question #1 : Angles

Which of the following angles is supplementary to ?

Possible Answers:

Correct answer:

Explanation:

When two angles are supplementary, they add up to .

For this problem, we can set up an equation and solve for the supplementary angle:

Example Question #4 : Angles

What angle is supplementary to ?

Possible Answers:

Correct answer:

Explanation:

Supplementary angles add up to . That means:

Example Question #1 : Angles

Solve for .

Question_2

(Figure not drawn to scale).

Example Question #7 : Angles

Which of the following angles is coterminal with  ?

Possible Answers:

Correct answer:

Explanation:

For an angle to be coterminal with , that angle must be of the form  for some integer  - or, equivalently, the difference of the angle measures multiplied by must be an integer. We apply this test to all five choices.

 

:

 

:

 

:

 

:

 

:

 

 is the correct choice, since only that choice passes our test.
