Angle

An angle is the figure formed by two rays sharing a common endpoint, called the vertex of the angle.

Angles provide a means of expressing the difference in slope between two rays meeting at a vertex without the need to explicitly define the slopes of the two rays.

Angles are studied in geometry and trigonometry.
