Unit 15 Section 1 : Angle Facts

In this section we revise some basic work with angles. You should already know the three rules below:
Angles around a point add up to 360°
Angles on a straight line add up to 180°
Angles in a triangle add up to 180°
We can use these rules to answer geometry questions.
