In this worksheet, students use angle rules to work out the missing angles in triangles and parallel lines.

Key stage:  KS 2

Curriculum topic:   Maths and Numerical Reasoning

Curriculum subtopic:   2D Shapes: Circles, Angles and Bearings

Difficulty level:

Worksheet Overview

Look at the following diagram.

Angle aº = 58º because it is alternate to the 58º on parallel lines (Z or S shape)

Angle bº = 48º because it is alternate to the 48º on parallel lines (Z or S shape)

Angle cº = 180º - 48º - 58º = 74º for two reasons.....angles in a triangle add up to 180º and angles on a straight line add up to 180º

Angle dº = 180º - 58º = 122º because angles on a straight line add up to 180º
