## How do you measure angles with a protractor?

How to measure an angle with a protractor:

- Place the midpoint of the protractor on the VERTEX of the angle.

- Read the degrees where the other side crosses the number scale.

**How do you use a protractor step by step?**

To measure an angle using a protractor, follow the steps below. Line up the vertex of the angle with the dot at the center of the protractor. Line up one side of the angle with 0 degrees on the protractor. Read the protractor to see where the other side of the angle crosses the number scale.

**How do you use a protractor with a ruler?**
