Right angle - Examples, Exercises and Solutions

Definition of Right Angle

A right angle is one of the types of angles that we will encounter during engineering studies.

A right angle is one that measures 90° 90° . We generally mark it with a small square at the area where it is formed.

Right angles can appear in triangles, squares, rectangles, and other geometric shapes with angles of 90° 90° degrees.

Practice Right angle

Exercise #1

True or false?

One of the angles in a rectangle may be an acute angle.

Video Solution

Step-by-Step Solution

One of the properties of a rectangle is that all its angles are right angles.

Therefore, it is not possible for an angle to be acute, that is, less than 90 degrees.

Answer

False
