How do you work out an angle on a straight line?

Do you mean you have another line at an angle to the straight line??

Unless you have any other information (other angles, line lengths, heights of perpendiculars etc.) which might help you to deduce it then you will need to either measure it directly using a protractor or indirectly using a ruler, and possibly a pair of compasses, to provide you with enough information to deduce it.

Hi measure half (other side of the angle) then take away that from 180degrees or just get a 360 degree protractor? girly.babezxxx
