I can … use what I know about fractions to measure angles.

Look Back! At 3 o’clock, what two fractions do the hands divide the clock into?

**Essential Question**

What is the Unit Used to Measure Angles?

Visual Learning Bridge

An angle is measured with units called degrees. An angle that turns through \(\frac{1}{360}\) of a circle is called a unit angle. How can you determine the angle measure of a right angle and the angles that turn through \(\frac{1}{6}\) and \(\frac{2}{6}\) of a circle?

You measure length in inches, area in square centimeters, and capacity in ounces. You measure an angle in degrees, o. A full circle has an

angle measure of 360°.

Divide to find the angle measure of a right angle.

Right angles divide a circle into 4 equal parts.

360° ÷ 4 = 90°

The angle measure of a right angle is 90°.

Divide to find the measure of an angle that turns through \(\frac{1}{6}\) of a circle.

\(\frac{1}{6}\) of a circle is one part of the circle that is divided into 6 equal parts.

360° ÷ 6 = 60°

The angle measure is 60°.

Add to find the measure of an angle that turns through \(\frac{2}{6}\) of a circle.

Remember \(\frac{2}{6}\) = \(\frac{1}{6}\) + \(\frac{1}{6}\)

Add to calculate the measure of \(\frac{2}{6}\) of a circle.

60° + 60° = 120° The angle measure of of a circle is 120°.

Convince Me! Critique Reasoning Susan thinks the measure of angle B is greater than the measure of angle A. Do you agree? Explain.

**Another Example!**

Find the fraction of a circle that an angle with a measure of 45° turns through

A 45° angle turns through \(\frac{45}{360}\) of a circle.

45° × 8 = 360°, so 45° is \(\frac{1}{8}\) of 360°.

One 45° angle is \(\frac{1}{8}\) of a circle.

**Guided Practice**

**Do You Understand?**

Question 1.

What fraction of the circle does a 120° angle turn through?

Answer:

A circle contains 360°

To find the fraction of the circle’s 120° angle.

Divide 120° by 360°

120°/360° = 1/3

Thus the fraction of the circle that does a 120° angle turn through is 1/3.

Question 2.

Mike cuts a pie into 4 equal pieces. What is the angle measure of each piece? Write and solve an equation.

Answer:

Given,

Mike cuts a pie into 4 equal pieces.

A circle contains 360°

360/90 = 4

90 degrees because when you cut each of them they will each measure 90 degrees.

**Do You Know How?**

Question 3.

A circle is divided into 9 equal parts. What is the angle measure of one of those parts?

Answer:

Given that,

A circle is divided into 9 equal parts.

There are 360 degrees in a circle.

That means that we first divide 360 by 9.

We have the measure for one of the nine parts of the circle, but we need two.

All we do is multiply 40 by 2 to get 80 degrees.

Question 4.

An angle turns through of the circle. What is the measure of this angle?

Answer:

An angle turns through the circle.

There are 360 degrees in a circle.

That means that we first divide 360 by 4.

360 ÷ 4 = 90

Thus the measure of the angle of the above circle is 90 degrees.

**Independent Practice**

For 5-8, find the measure of each angle.

Question 5.

The angle turns through \(\frac{1}{5}\) of the circle.

Answer:

An angle turns through the circle.

There are 360 degrees in a circle.

That means that we first divide 360 by 5.

360 ÷ 5 = 72

Thus the measure of the angle of the above circle is 72 degrees.

Question 6.

The angle turns through \(\frac{3}{8}\) of the circle.

Answer:

An angle turns through the circle.

There are 360 degrees in a circle.

That means that we first divide 360 by \(\frac{3}{8}\).

360 × \(\frac{3}{8}\) = 135

Thus the measure of the angle of the above circle is 135 degrees.

Question 7.

The angle turns through \(\frac{2}{5}\) of the circle.

Answer:

The angle turns through \(\frac{2}{5}\) of the circle.

There are 360 degrees in a circle.

That means that we first divide 360 by \(\frac{2}{5}\).

360 × \(\frac{2}{5}\) = 144

Thus the measure of the angle of the above circle is 144 degrees.

Question 8.

The angle turns through \(\frac{2}{6}\) of the circle.

Answer:

The angle turns through \(\frac{2}{6}\) of the circle.

There are 360 degrees in a circle.

That means that we first divide 360 by \(\frac{2}{6}\).

360 × \(\frac{2}{6}\) = 120

Thus the measure of the angle of the above circle is 120 degrees.

**Problem Solving**

Question 9.

Use the clock to find the measure of the smaller angle formed by the hands at each time.

a. 3:00

b. 11:00

c. 2:00

Answer:

11:00

Thus the correct answer is option B.

Question 10.

Algebra Jacey wrote an equation to find an angle measure. What do variables a and b represent in Jacey’s equation? 360° ÷ a = b

Answer:

We know that Jacey wrote an equation to find an angle measure.

The equation is as follows:

360 ÷ a = b

So, if the angle is 360 degrees is a central angle, i.e, an angle between 2 radii in a circle, then

a = the number of equal parts the circle is divided.

b = the measure of the central angle of each part.

Question 11.

enVision® STEM A mirror can be used to reflect a beam of light at an angle. What fraction of a circle would the angle shown turn through?

Answer:

Given,

A mirror can be used to reflect a beam of light at an angle.

120° ÷ 360° = 1/3

The fraction of a circle would the angle turn is 1/3.

Question 12.

Malik paid $32.37 for three books. One book cost $16.59. The second book cost $4.27. How much did the third book cost? Use bills and coins to solve.

Answer:

Given,

Malik paid $32.37 for three books. One book cost $16.59. The second book cost $4.27.

$16.59 + $4.27 = $20.86

$32.37 – $20.86 = $11.51

Thus the cost of third book is $11.51

Question 13.

Make Sense and Persevere A pie was cut into equal parts. Four pieces of the pie were eaten. The 5 pieces that remained created an angle that measured 200°. What was the angle measure of one piece of pie?

Answer:

Given that,

A pie was cut into equal parts.

Four pieces of the pie were eaten.

The 5 pieces that remained created an angle that measured 200°.

200/5 = 40

Thus the angle measure of one piece of pie is 40 degrees.

Question 14.

**Higher Order Thinking** Jake cut a round gelatin dessert into 8 equal pieces. Five of the pieces were eaten. What is the angle measure of the dessert that was left?

Answer:

Given,

Jake cut a round gelatin dessert into 8 equal pieces.

Five of the pieces were eaten.

Fraction is the number of pieces eaten by the total number of pieces.

5/8

360 × 5/8 = 225

Thus the angle measure of the desert that was left.

**Essential Question**

How Can You Measure Angles?

Visual Learning Bridge

Holly traced around a trapezoid pattern block. She wants to find the measure of the angle formed shown to the right. What can Holly use to measure the angle?

The measure of a unit angle is 1 degree. Just like adding inches + inches, you can add degrees + degrees. So 5° = 1° + 1° + 1° + 1° + 1°

or 5 × 1°

Use an angle you know to find the measure of another angle.

The smaller angle of the tan pattern block measures 30°.

A 30-degree angle turns through 30 one-degree angles.

The angle of the trapezoid pattern block is equal to 2 of the smaller angles of the tan pattern block. Each smaller angle is 30°.

The measure of the trapezoid angle is 60°.

A 60-degree angle turns through 60 one-degree angles.

One-fourth of the rug is purple and the rest is blue.

A = base × height

Area = 16 × 4 = 64 sq. ft

Answer:

The 120° angles make up 1/3 of one full rotation of the hands-on clock, with a full rotation divided up into 12 equal sections. 1/3 of those 12 sections would be 4 sections, and since we are looking for exact hours that represent this angle, we need four sections forming each of the 120° angles with the minute hand on the clock being at 12. Therefore, the hour hand can be at the 4 for 4 o’clock and it could also be at the 8 for 8 o’clock.

**Higher Order Thinking** Maya designed two intersecting roads. She drew the roads so one of the angles at the intersection was 35o. What are the three other angle measurements formed by the intersection?

Answer:

To find the other three angles in the intersection, we need to know that in an intersection of two lines, one angle is the supplement of the other, and the other two are equal to the first and the second one, that is, if the first angle is x, the values of the four angles are

x, 180 – x, x and 180 – x

so if one angle is 35 degrees, we have that the three other angles are 145 degrees, 35 degrees, and 145 degrees.
