### Why is there 90 degrees in a right angle?

Because 90 degrees is half of a straight line. A straight line is equal to 180 degrees. 180 divided by 2 = 90.

### What is a line at 90 degrees to another line?

### How can you construct 135 degree angle only with a scale and compasses?

Construct a perpendicular line that intersects a horizontal line at 90 degrees and then bisect the vertical line with the horizontal line will give an obtuse angle of 135 degrees because 90 degrees+45 degrees = 135 degrees

### What is a six-letter word for a line with angles that is not straight?
