Two angles are said to be linear if they are adjacent angles formed by two intersecting lines. The measure of a straight angle is 180 degrees, so a linear pair of angles must add up to 180 degrees.

## How do you find the pair of adjacent angles?

The adjacent angles will have the common side and the common vertex. Two angles are said to be supplementary angles if the sum of both the angles is 180 degrees. If the two supplementary angles are adjacent to each other then they are called linear pair. Sum of two adjacent supplementary angles = 180o.

## What is meant by linear pair?

A linear pair is a pair of adjacent angles formed when two lines intersect. In the figure, ∠1 and ∠2 form a linear pair.

## Can adjacent mean opposite?

The other two sides are called the opposite and adjacent sides. These sides are labeled in relation to an angle. The opposite side is across from a given angle. The adjacent side is the non-hypotenuse side that is next to a given angle.

## What is an adjacent triangle?

more In a general triangle an Adjacent Side is adjacent (next to) to the angle θ. In a right-angled triangle it is the side between the angle θ and the right angle: Sine, Cosine, Tangent.

## Where is the adjacent side of a triangle?

The adjacent side is the side closest to the angle. (Adjacent means “next to.”) The opposite side is the side across from the angle. The hypotenuse is the side of the triangle opposite the right angle, and it is the longest. Right triangle: The sides of a right triangle in relation to angle t .

## Does sine rule apply to all triangles?

The Sine Rule can be used in any triangle (not just right-angled triangles) where a side and its opposite angle are known. You will only ever need two parts of the Sine Rule formula, not all three. You will need to know at least one pair of a side with its opposite angle to use the Sine Rule.

## How do you use trigonometry on non right triangles?

Given two sides and the angle between them (SAS), find the measures of the remaining side and angles of a triangle.

Sketch the triangle. Apply the Law of Cosines to find the length of the unknown side or angle. Apply the Law of Sines or Cosines to find the measure of a second angle.
