Perpendicular lines meet at 90 degrees

On a compass, 90 degrees means due east. The other device called a compass is used to transfer distance and draw circles, but not to measure angles. It's most likely that the word problem you were looking at meant "east".

Acute - less than 90 degrees Right - exactly 90 degrees Obtuse - more than 90 degrees but less than 180 degrees

Perpendicular lines meet at 90 degrees

On a compass, 90 degrees means due east. The other device called a compass is used to transfer distance and draw circles, but not to measure angles. It's most likely that the word problem you were looking at meant "east".

If you look at a compass, it points north. Each mark is one degree, and there are 360 on a compass, so 30 degrees east of north means that you head towards the thirtieth park to the east (right) of north. On a watch, if 12 o'clock is north, then 1 o'clock is thirty degrees east of it.

90 because north to east is 1/4 of a circle
