Can a right angle be on the left? Yes a right angle can be on the left

a left angle is the opposite from a right angle :)

Because the phrase 'right angle' indicates 90 degrees whereas there is no such angle as a 'left angle'

Left to right or right to left.

If you mean which alphabet letter, an L has one right angle; a T has a right and left acute angle.

There are 90 degrees in a left angle as there are in a right angle but the term 'left angle' is rarely used

Either right or left. 90 degrees is 1/4 of a complete circle. Here's a right angle: |_ and a left angle: _|

Left to right or right to left.

nope, it's still a right angle

The same as in a right angle which is 90 degrees

The term of Latin in right angle is angulus rectus; here rectus means "upright", referring to the vertical perpendicular to a horizontal base line."Right" has other meanings, apart from the opposite of "left". I suspect that the ethymology here is more like a "correct" angle.

I can be. Perpendicular is a "T", with the stem SOMETIMES moved to the left or right. So, yes, a right angle CAN be perpendicular.
