Geometry Symbols : Name of symbols, meaning | ORCHIDS

Geometry Symbols

Geometry symbols play a crucial role in expressing mathematical concepts and solutions. From familiar Math's symbols like "+", "-", "*", and "/", these evolve into specialized geometry symbols that visually represent geometric elements. These symbols, such as points (●), lines (―), and angles (∠), form the language of geometry, aiding in the precise communication of spatial relationships. The application of geometric symbols extends to different shapes like triangles (△) and circles (o), facilitating the representation and solution of geometric problems within the broader realm of Math's solutions.

Table Of Geometry Symbols:

Name of the Symbol

Meaning / Definition

Angle

Represents an angle formed by two rays sharing a common endpoint.

m∠

Measured Angle

Denotes the measure of an angle in degrees or radians.

Spherical Angle

Represents an angle on the surface of a sphere.

Right Angle

Denotes an angle of 90 degrees.

°

Degree

Unit of angular measurement, with a full circle being 360 degrees.

Prime

Indicates minutes in angular measurement (1 degree = 60 minutes).

"

Double Prime

Indicates seconds in angular measurement (1 minute = 60 seconds).

─→

Line

Represents a straight path that extends indefinitely in both directions.

AB or AB

Line Segment

Denotes a part of a line with two endpoints.

→AB or AB→

Ray

Represents a part of a line that starts at one endpoint and extends indefinitely in one direction.

Arc

Represents a curved part of a circle.

Perpendicular

Denotes two lines that intersect at a right angle.

Parallel

Indicates lines that will never intersect.

Congruent To

Denotes that two shapes or segments have the same size and shape.

Similarity

Denotes that two figures are similar.

Triangle

Represents a polygon with three sides and three angles.

d

Distance

Represents the length between two points.

π

Pi Constant

Represents the ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter.

rad

Radians

Unit of angular measurement, based on the radius of a circle.

c

Gradians / Gons

Unit of angular measurement, a right angle is equivalent to 100 gradians.
