1.3 Angles, points and lines

Very often, angles in a shape are determined by the geometric properties of that shape. For example, a square has four right angles. So, when you know a shape is a square, you do not need to measure its angles to know that they are 90°. The rest of this section will look at the properties of shapes that enable you to deduce and calculate angles rather than measure them. You may like to add these properties to your notes.
