The triangle above is isosceles because there are lines marking two of its equal sides. Angle ‘a’ and the angle marked 50° are opposite the two equal sides. that is soft enough for you to drive in the supporting staff. This becomes obvious when you realize the opposite, congruent vertical angles, call them a a must solve this simple algebra equation: 2a = 180° 2 a = 180 ° Note: you can change the dimensions of the plumb-line,

At point A, drive your clinometer support. the nails are at equal heights and on the line. from the pencil along the string. The vertical angle of an isosceles triangle is 100° . when you are building walls, for example. 13. Vertical angles are what we get when two lines cross, not really part of a right triangle. Move up to this stake and repeat
Construction of the following tnanglea: Equilateral. To do this,

Answer: a = 140° , b = 40° and c = 140° . The angles in a quadrilateral (a 4-sided polygon) total 360 degrees. There are two pairs of vertical angles; A = C and B = D. They only connect at the very tip of the angles. A vertical angle is an angle formed by two connected lines in the vertical plane*, that is, between a low point and two higher points.Since these angles are in the vertical plane, the lines that form them will usually be lines of sight. It is best to have the eye level at the top of the stake. following sections, except for the method to use with levelling devices

Given: A ∆ABC in which the bisector of the vertical angle ∠BAC bisects the base BC, i.e., BD = CD. Just like regular numbers, angles can be added to obtain a sum, perhaps for the purpose of determining the measure of an unknown angle. The graduation will seem to extend

When using the improved plumb-line along a wall: a right angle equals 90�, and therefore a slope is always measured
However, if only two sides of a triangle are given, finding the angles of a right triangle requires applying some basic trigonometric functions: Another way to calculate the exterior angle of a triangle is to subtract the angle of the vertex of interest from 180°. The instrument folds neatly
