155 degrees
260 degrees
Q2.
Calculate the missing angle, labelled x
180 degrees
90 degrees
Q3.
Find the missing angles, x, y and z
Correct answer: x = 38, y = 142, z = 142
x = 38, y = 142, z = 38
x = 38, y = 52, z = 142
Q4.
Find the size of the missing angles
x = 123, y = 100
Correct answer: x = 37, y = 100
x = 68.5, y = 68.5
Q5.
Shown below is a rhombus. Calculate each of the missing angles
They are all diagonals of the rectangle
x = 11.5, y = 141.5, z = 141.5
x = 23, y = 314, z = 314
Correct answer: x = 23, y = 157, z = 157
