PVQ = 21 degrees

RVT = 96 degrees

PVS = 143 degrees.

We know that:

angles between 0 and 90 are Acute angles.

Angles between 90 and 180 degrees are Obtuse angles.

Angles equal 90 degree are right angles.

Then:

PVQ = 21 < 90 ==> Acute angle.

RVT = 96 ==> 90 < RVT < 180 ==> obtuse angle.

PVS = 143 ==> 90< PVS < 180 ==> Obtuse angle.

Angles of are classified in different types according to their size. The types of angles and their corresponding size in degrees is described below.

Right angle: 90 degrees

Acute angle: less than 90 degrees

Obtuse angle: more than 90 degrees and less than 180 degrees

Straight angle: 180 degrees.

Thus the type of each of the given angle is:

PVQ (21 degrees): Acute angle

RTV (96 degrees): Obtuse angle

PVS (143 degrees): Obtuse angle

Angle PVQ = 21 degrees

Angle RVT = 96 degrees

Angle PVS = 143 degrees.

To classify the angles:

Solution:

An angle less than 90 degrees is  acute angle

Angle more than 90 degree but less thann 180 degree is an obtuse angle.

So Angle PVQ = 21 deg is acute angle.

Angle RVT = 96 deg and angle PVS = 143 deg are obtuse angles
