## julianassange 3 years ago On a protractor, which side signals if it is getting bigger or smaller?

I need to know, I have a test tomorrow!

protractor... is that heavy machinery?

3. julianassange

No, its one of these tools for measuring angles in math. http://www.altereagle.com/4_How_to_insta/IMAG005.GIF

oh... that kind of tractor...

5. dpaInc

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?

8. dpaInc

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|

9. dpaInc

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