# GCSE maths Angles

Watch
#1
Hello everyone,

I have my GCSE maths exam next Monday and there is a huge area in which I struggle in: ANGLES! I just can't get to grips with angles. That is very basic angles such as "Z" angles alternate and corresponding angles etc...

I would be ever so grateful if somebody could explain this all to me!

Thanks,

Ensure that you know the definition/examples of:

-Alternate angles
-Corresponding angles
-F angles
-Z angles

This should explain it to you nicely:

The names of angles
Angles around a point add up to 360 degrees.

Angles in a straight line add up to 180 degrees (Supplementary angles)

Vertically opposite angles are equal

Complementary angles add up to 90 degrees.

Alternate angles are equal
Corresponding angles

The angles in a triangle add up to 180 degrees.

The angles in polygons
Hope this helps
