Angle whose measurement is** between 90 and 180 degree** is an **Obtuse Angle**

If you want to draw obtuse angle, you can draw it from range 91 to 179 degree

Below are some examples of Obtuse Angle

**Parts of Obtuse Angle**

Obtuse angle is made by joining two rays at common point.

The angle between the rays should be between 90 and 180 degrees.

Obtuse angle is made of following parts

**(A) Arms**

The two rays of the angle is known as Arms

Here OA and OB are the Arms

**(B) Vertex**

The common point where the rays join is known as Vertex

O is the vertex in the below figure

**Draw Obtuse Angle Using Protractor**

In order to draw obtuse angle, do the following steps

**(a) **Take sheet of paper and draw horizontal line as given below

Name the line OA

**(b) **Take Protractor and place its center above the point 0 (as shown in below figure)

To make obtuse angle, you have option to form angle of 91 to 179 degree

Observe the range of angle option in below figure

**(c)** Let us draw angle of 150 degree

Mark point B at 150 of protractor

**(d)** Remove the protractor and point point OB

Hence we got the desired 150 degree angle

I hope you have understood the angle construction process and now you can draw any obtuse angle of our choice.
