Angles Around a Point

Angles around a point will always add up to 360 degrees.


The angles above all add to 360°

53° + 80° + 140° + 87° = 360°

 

Because of this, we can find an unknown angle.

Example: What is angle "c"?

To find angle c we take the sum of the known angles and take that from 360°

Sum of known angles = 110° + 75° + 50°  + 63°
Sum of known angles = 298°

Angle c = 360° − 298°
Angle c = 62°
