Explementary Angles (Mathematics Lesson)
Explementary AnglesExplementary angles are two angles which add up to a full angle.
Two angles that add to 360° are explementary angles.
A Real Example of Complementary AnglesAngles of 240° and 120° are explementary angles.
240° + 120° = 360°.
How to Find an Explementary AngleQuestion: What angle forms a pair of explementary angles with the 160° angle below?
Step 1: The 160° angle and θ are explementary angles. They add up to 360°.
160° + θ = 360°.
Step 2: Subtract the 160° angle from 360°.
θ = 360° - 160° = 200°.
The explementary angle is 200°.
