The supplement of an obtuse angle is called an acute free angle, or an acute angle.
It is also possible to define the multiplication of a free angle by a positive integer, provided that the resulting angle is a well-defined free angle.

The vertical angles are congruent (the pairs of vertical angles are a and d, c and b, e and h, and f and g).
Angles on the same side of the transversal and in the same position relative to the parallel lines are called corresponding angles and are congruent.
Since the transversal cuts the parallel lines at the same angle, the angles formed by the parallel lines and the transversal are identical in measure (e.g., d and h, and c and g).

 Math Forum - Ask Dr. Math
To measure an acute angle (less than 90 degrees), put the vertex at the center of the straight side of the protractor, lining up one half of that side with one side of the angle, so that the other side is under the protractor.
For instance, if you read 45, the angle is really 180 - 45 = 135 degrees A reflex angle is the "outside" of an acute or obtuse angle.
I think you mean that you are supposed to find the angle between the 80 and 150 marks on the protractor.

 All Elementary Mathematics - Study Guide - Geometry - Angles...
Angle is a geometric figure  (Fig.1),  formed by two rays  OA  and  OB (sides of an angle), going out of the same point  O  (a vertex of an angle).
A measure of an angle is a value of a turn around a vertex O, that transfers a ray OA  to the position OB.
An angle of  90 deg  (Fig.2) is called a right or direct angle; an angle lesser than  90 deg  (Fig.3), is called an acute angle; an angle greater than  90 deg  (Fig.4), is called an obtuse angle.

 Question Corner -- Counting Obtuse Triangles in an Inscribed Polygon
Similarly, angle C is 10a degrees and angle A is 10b degrees.
Therefore, the number of obtuse triangles equals the number of "extra" triangles (which is the number of 2's among the three numbers), plus 1 if the "main" triangle ABC is obtuse (which happens if one of the three numbers is a 9).
Label the vertices of each obtuse triangle A, B, and C, in order clockwise, starting at the vertex before the obtuse angle (so that angle B is the one which is obtuse).

We assume the facts that the three angles in a triangle as well as any angles that form a straight line have a sum of 180º.
But clearly the measure is less than 90º since this is not as wide an angle as a right angle or square corner.

Be sure to instruct them on what angles they are forming (right, obtuse or acute) and how to properly form the angles.
Stress that all of the square’s angles are right angles equal to 90oeach, and that some geometric shapes will have right angles, but that all of the angles may not be right angles.

An angle of more than 90 degrees and less than 180 degrees is an obtuse angle.
Clearly, the angles created by the slanted straight line intersecting the straight base line are those of an obtuse angle and an acute angle, unless we have right angles created by a perpendicular line to the base each composing 90 degrees and totaling 180 degrees.
