#### 1. What is an angle?

An angle is the amount of turning between two lines meeting at a point.

#### 2. How are angles formed?

When 2 lines meet at a point, they form an angle at that point.

#### 3. How do we denote angles?

We denote angle using the symbol ∠.

#### 1. Ali bends a straw as below. Mark the angle formed by it. The bent straw (presented by the blue lines) forms an angle as marked by the red turning.

#### 2. Following are examples of angles on objects we see everyday. On each object, the angles are marked by the yellow turning.

#### 3. Here are some pairs of pencils placed in pairs. Which of these pairs form angles? Pairs A, C and D form angles.

#### c. Arrange the angles in order, beginning with the smallest. a. The lines forming Angle Y have the smallest turning.
So, ∠Y is the smallest angle.
b. The lines forming Angle X have the greatest turning.
So, ∠X is the greatest angle.
c. Beginning with the smallest, the angles can be arranged as below:
∠Y,     ∠Z,     ∠X
