# CLASS-6DRAW OF ANGLE BY PROTRACTOR

DRAW OF ANGLE BY PROTRACTOR -

1. Place the "center point" (at the bottom of this protractor) on the vertex of the angle.

2. Line up one ray (side) of the angle with the zero degree mark of the protractor. On this protractor, the zero mark is the bottom edge of the protractor.

3. Read the degrees where the other ray of the angle crosses the protractor.

When using a protractor to measure an angle, be sure your answer makes sense. Take a look at the angle to determine its approximate size.

The angle shown at the right is a 40º angle.

One ray of the angle lies on the bottom edge of the protractor (the zero tick mark at the right), and the angle OPENS up from that ray.

Notice the dashed blue arrow. It is following the bottom arc of the degrees, as that is the labeling that started with . The answer is 40º, not 140º.

The degrees in this angle are being read on the top arc of the labeled degrees since we lined up one of the rays of the angle with the zero tick mark at the left side of the protractor.

Follow the red arrow to 75º.

When reading an obtuse angle (greater than 90º but less than 180º), remember to read FROM the location on the starting ray at the zero tick mark.

Follow the red arrow to 115º.

Draw 60º angle by Protractor -

1.  Start by drawing a straight line (a reference line) that will contain one of the rays of the angle. A horizontal line will be the easiest with which to work. Use a ruler or the edge of the protractor to draw this line. No freehand drawing.

2.  Place a dot on the line to represent the vertex of the angle.

3.  Place the "center point" of the protractor on the dot. Line up the reference line with the zero degree mark of the protractor.

4.  Find the number of degrees you wish your angle to have. Read carefully along the degree arc. Place a dot at this location.

5.  Draw the angle, connecting the dot to the vertex point. Use a straight edge to draw the final ray of the angle. No free hand drawing.

How to measure an angle with a protractor:-

· Place the midpoint of the protractor on the VERTEX of the angle.

· Line up one side of the angle with the zero line of the protractor (where you see the number 0).

Read the degrees where the other side crosses the number scale.
