Complementary angles add up to one right angle (90 degrees), such as 30 degrees and 60 degrees. Supplementary angles add up to a straight angle, which is 2 right angles (180 degrees). So the supplement of a 30 degree angle is 150 degrees. For any given angle, its supplement is 90 degrees greater than its complement.

They MUST both be acute.Two angles are complementary if their sum is 90 degrees. Therefore, neither of them can be greater than 90 degrees and so they are acute.

Complementary angles total 90 degrees. Since 106 is greater than 90, it doesn't have a complement.

No because complementary angles add up to 90 degrees and an obtuse angle is greater than 90 degrees.

Two angles are complementary when they add up to exactly 90 degrees. An obtuse angle is by definition greater than 90 degrees. Therefore, an obtuse angle cannot have a complementary angle. So an obtuse angle and an acute angle are never complementary.

Complementary angles add up to 90 degrees and supplementary angles add up to 180 degrees. So the answer is 90 degrees greater.

No. In fact, they never are. A right angle by definition is 90 degrees. An obtuse angle is any degree greater than 90. In order for two angles to be supplementary, they must equal 180 degrees. Because an obtuse angle is always greater than 90 degrees, and a right angle is always 90 degrees, an obtuse angle and a right angle can never be supplementary.

Angles can be complementary, supplementary, alternate, corresponding, perpendicular ..... etc but there are only 4 main angles which are as follows:- Acute angle is greater than 0 but less than 90 degree Right angle is 90 degrees Obtuse angle is greater than 90 but less than 180 degrees Reflex angle is greater than 180 but less than 360 degrees which is a complete revolution

Complementary angles total 90 degrees. Since 106 is greater than 90, it doesn't have a complement.

No, one of two complementary angles cannot be obtuse, because only two acute angles that add up to 90 degrees are complementary and that an obtuse angle on its own is greater than 90 degrees.

No because complementary angles add up to 90 degrees and an obtuse angle is greater than 90 degrees.

Obtuse angle if your looking for the word.

Two angles are complementary when they add up to exactly 90 degrees. An obtuse angle is by definition greater than 90 degrees. Therefore, an obtuse angle cannot have a complementary angle. So an obtuse angle and an acute angle are never complementary.

No because supplementary angles add up to 180 degrees and two obtuse angles would be greater than 180 degrees.

there can be only one angle measuring more than 90 degrees.. as sum of angles in a triangle is 180 degrees. all the angles cannot exceed 90. A triangle in which one angle is greater than 90 degrees is an obtuse angled triangle
