An obtuse angle is an angle that is larger that 90 degrees but

smaller than a straight angle (180 degrees).

An acute angle is smaller than 90 degrees, a right angle is

exactly 90 degrees, and a reflex is larger than 180 degrees but

smaller than 360 degrees.

There is no such thing as an "abtuse angle". An obtuse angle,

however, is an angle whose measure is between 90 and 180

degrees.
