Adjacent angle: Two angles are adjacent angles if they have a common vertex, a common arm and their non-common arms are on different sides of the common arm.

notes

Adjacent Angles:

Two angles are adjacent angles if they have
(i) a common vertex,
(ii) a common arm and
(iii) their non-common arms are on different sides of the common arm.

Adjacent angles have a common vertex and a common arm but no common interior points.

  • ∠ ABD and ∠ DBC are adjacent angles.
    Ray BD is their common arm and point B is their common vertex.
    Ray BA and ray BC are noncommon arms.

  • Moreover, when two angles are adjacent, then their sum is always equal to the angle formed by the two non- common arms.

    ∠ ABC = ∠ ABD + ∠ DBC.

Example

In the given figure, Identify five pairs of adjacent angles.

Five pairs of adjacent angles are (∠AOE, ∠EOC), (∠EOC, ∠COB), (∠AOC, ∠COB), (∠COB, ∠BOD), (∠EOB, ∠BOD).
