Right angle: An angle whose measure is 90o is called a right angle. ∠ BOA is a right angle in the figure.
Acute angle: An angle whose measure is less then one right angle (i.e., less than 90o), is called an acute angle.
Obtuse angle: An angle whose measure is more than one right angle i. e. 90o and less than two right angles
(i.e., less than 180o and more than 90o) is called an obtuse angle.
Interior angle: An interior angle of a polygon is an angle that is inside the polygon at one of its vertices. So for a polygon with N sides, there are N vertices and N interior angles. For a regular polygon, by definition, all the interior angles are the same. For an irregular polygon, each angle may be different.
Exterior angle: An exterior angle of a polygon is an angle outside the polygon formed by one of its sides and the extension of an adjacent side. If we count one exterior angle at each vertex, the sum of the measures of the exterior angles of a polygon is always 360°.
Polygon : A closed n sided figure where n can be 3,4,5...... Polygon may be regular or irregular. In regular polygon all the sides are same and in irregular polygon all sides may be different.
· A six-sided figure is called a hexagon.
· A seven-sided figure is called a heptagon.
· An eight-sided figure is called an octagon, etc
All the sides are equal.
Each angle is of 90°.
The diagonals are equal.
The diagonals are perpendicular to each other.
In a parallelogram, opposite sides are equal.
The opposite angles of a parallelogram are equal.
The diagonals of a parallelogram bisect each other.
Rhombus:
· If all sides of a parallelogram are equal, then it is a rhombus.
