  Angle - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Angles provide a means of expressing the difference in slope between two rays meeting at a vertex without the need to explicitly define the slopes of the two rays.
The degree measure of the angle is the length of the arc, divided by the circumference of the circle, and multiplied by 360.
The angle between a line and a curve (mixed angle) or between two intersecting curves (curvilinear angle) is defined to be the angle between the tangents at the point of intersection.

The first concept was used by, who regarded an angle as a deviation from a straight line; the second by, who regarded it as the interval or space between the intersecting lines; Euclid adopted the third concept, although his definitions of right, acute, and obtuse angles are certainly quantitative.
Angles smaller than a right angle are called acute angles; angles larger than a right angle are called obtuse angles.
The difference between an acute angle and a right angle is termed the complement of the angle, and between an angle and two right angles the supplement of the angle.

 SparkNotes: Review of Geometry II: Theorem Review
The consecutive angles of a parallelogram are supplementary.
The measure of an angle whose vertex is on the circle, whose sides are a chord and a tangent segment, is half the measure of the arc it intercepts.
The measure of an angle whose sides are contained in distinct secant lines and whose vertex is in the interior of a circle is equal to half the sum of the measures of its intercepted arcs.

 Complementary angles -- Facts, Info, and Encyclopedia article   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
A pair of (The space between two lines or planes that intersect; the inclination of one line to another; measured in degrees or radians) angles are complementary if the sum of their measures is 90 (A specific identifiable position in a continuum or series or especially in a process) degrees.
If the two complementary angles are adjacent (i.e., have a common vertex and share a side, but do not have any interior points in common) their non-shared sides form a (The 90 degree angle between two perpendicular lines) right angle.
The adjective "complementary" comes from the (Any dialect of the language of ancient Rome) Latin complementum, which derives from the fourth form of the Latin verb complere, i.e.

In the applet below you are given the measure of an angle.
When we talk about the sum of two angles A and B we mean a new angle whose measure is the sum of the measures of A and B. When the sum of two angles is 90 ° we call them complementary angles and when the sum is 180° we call them supplementary angles.
So, for example 60° is the measure of the complementary angle to 30° while 150° is the measure of the supplementary angle to 30°.

A complementary angle is found by subtracting the reference angle from 90° (90° - 37° = 53°).
Since the reference and complementary angles are in the same triangle, both angles use the same numbers (length of sides) to derive their functions.
The sine of the reference angle is equal to the cosine of the complementary angle, and vice versa.
