    what do you mean by "side" ... i would guess as the numbers get bigger, the angles get bigger and vice/versa

    You are correct, but which side, ( the left or right) grows larger as an angle?

    they both have number increasing right? if you measure an angle with one side of the angle on the right then that's the numbers you should be looking at because that is what's called your initial (or starting side).. this usually corresponds with zero...|dw:1340238244454:dw|

    and it's the same if you have the initial side starting at the left side...
