Questions tagged [angle]

An object formed by two rays joining at a common point, or a measure of rotation. In the latter form, it is commonly in degrees or radians. Please do not use this tag just because an angle is involved in the question/attempt; use it for questions where the main concern is about angles. This tag can also be used alongside (geometry).
