|Class 6 Maths Understanding Elementary Shapes||Measuring Angles|
The one complete turn is called one revolution and it is divided into 360 equal parts. Each part is a degree. We can measure the angle by using a protractor.
A protractor is divided into 180 equal parts and each part is equal to a degree. The markings start from 0° on the right side and ends with 180° on the left side, and vice-versa.
Problem: Measure the angles given below, using the protractor and write down the measure:
Solution: By using the protractor, we find that
(a) 400 (b) 1300 (c) 900 (d) 600
Problem: Find the angle measure between the hands of the clock in each figure:
(a) 900 (b) 300 (c) 1800
