. Define Adjacent angles Linear pair of angles What is the sum of a linear pair of angles

Best Answer


  • Adjacent angles: Adjacent angles are the two angles that have a common side and a common vertex but do not overlap in any way.
  • Sum of Adjacent Angles =180° 
  • Also, It is not necessary that sum of a Adjacent Angles will always be. = 180°
  • Linear pair of angles: The angles are said to be linear if they are adjacent to each other after the intersection of the two lines.
  • Sum of linear pair of angles =180°

Final Answer:

Two angles that have common sides and common vertex are known as adjacent angles and linear pair of angles are adjacent angles formed by two intersecting lines and their sum is =180°
