Interior and Exterior of an Angle
Interior and exterior of an angle is explained here.
The shaded portion between the arms BA and BC of the angle ABC can be extended indefinitely.
This portion is called the interior of the angle. X is a point in the interior of the angle. The point Y lies in the exterior of the angle.
The point Z lies on the angle.
In the above figure, here ∠1 is called the interior angle because it lies inside the two arms. ∠2 is called the exterior angle. Whenever two rays meet, two angle are formed – one an interior angle and other an exterior angle. The size of an angle is measured by the amount of turn or rotation of two arms and not by how long the arms appear to be.
Here ∠a is greater than ∠b, ∠b is greater than ∠c.
Let ∠XOY be an angle in the plane. The rays OX and OY divide all the points of the plane in three regions (as shown in the below figure).
Now, we have the following:
(i) The region shown by the shaded part is the interior of ∠XOΥ.
(ii) The region of all the points, which do not lie in the interiors well as on its arms, is called the exterior of ∠XOY.
(iii) The region of all those points which lie on the arms OX and OY is called the common boundary of the two regions.
In the above figure, points P and R are in the exterior of ∠XOY, Q is in the interior of ∠XOY and O, B, S, X, Y lie on the boundary of ∠XOY.
Notes:
1. The arms of an angle separate its interior and exterior.
2. The interior of an angle together with its boundary is called the angular region of the angle

Triangles are classified in two ways: (i) On the basis of sides and, (ii) On the basis of angles.In classification of triangle there are six elements in a triangle, that is, three sides and three angles. So, classification of triangle is done on the base of these elements.
Pairs of angles are discussed here in this lesson. 1. Complementary Angles: Two angles whose sum is 90° are called complementary angles and one is called the complement of the other.

Two lines that cross each other at a particular point are called intersecting lines. The point where two lines cross is called the point of intersection. In the given figure AB and CD intersect each other at point O.
Here we will learn pairs of lines. When pairs of lines are given in a plane, they maybe (i) parallel to each other. (ii) intersecting each other. Two lines in a same plane not intersecting each other are called parallel lines. The lines AB and CD never meet each other
