> Naming Angles <

 

When two lines meet (or intersect) at a point, then an angle is
formed.  The point of intersection of the lines is called the vertex.

 

Lines AB and AC meet at the point A to form an angle.  The point A is the
vertex of the angle, and the lines that meet to make the angle are called the
arms of the angle.
