The definition of supplementary angles is: Two angles whose sum is 180 degrees.

It says nothing about their relative location, or any specific ratio of their sizes.

Is an acute angle a suplementary angle?

a suplementary angle is when 2 or more angles join to create a 180 degree angle, so if an acute angle is adjacent to another angle and the total number of degrees created is 180, then yes it is a suplementary angle.

Are the alternate interior angles always congruent?

Adjacent angles of a square? You have to have at least two squares to compare the congruency of angles. Since all the angles of a square equal 90 degrees, adjacent angles of any TWO squares will be congruent. I suggest you look up the definition of CONGRUENT. - wjs1632 -

Does a rectangle have a adjacent angles equal?

Rectangles have congruent adjacent angles.

Does a square have adjacent sides equal?

A square has all sides congruent so therefore adjacent sides are congruent or equal.Yes and it has 4 equal angles of 90 degrees

Are adjacent angles congruent?

they can be but are not always. for example, in a square, each interior angle is 45 degrees. Adjacent simply means that one next to another and congruent means having the same measure. So in this example, adjacent angles are congruent. However, in a scalene triangle, no two angles are the same and therefore cannot be congruent. I hope this is what you are asking Dave

If a quadrilateral has four congruent sides but its adjacent angles are not congruent then the quadrilateral is a?

An impossibility. By definition a quadrilateral with 4 congruent sides must have congruent adjacent angles.

If two angles are congruent, adjacent, and supplementary. What is the measure of each angle?

90 degrees is the angle
