Folding Angle Questions

 

The primary goal of this math revision note is to enhance your child’s proficiency in solving folding angle problems.

These folding angle questions assess your child’s capacity to imagine the appearance of a piece of paper before and after it is folded. They should utilise this visualisation of the folding process along with their prior knowledge of angle properties to determine the required angle in the question.

With this analysis, we now know that:  38° + 2x = 90°

Therefore, 2x = 90° − 38° = 52

∠x = 52° ÷ 2

     = 26° (Ans)

Notice that all the angles that are marked out here form a straight line.

Recall: the angle of a straight line = 180°

Hence, we can now find x:

x = 180°  29° × 2 − 36° × 2

   = 180°  58°  72° 

   = 50° (Ans)
