Explementary angle

Just want to make sure I understand this correctly: let's say alpha is the interior angle of an equilateral triangle in normal (Euclidean) space. The explementary angle of that angle would be 300 degrees, right?

Re: Explementary angle

Yes, the explementary angle of any 60-degree angle is 300 degrees.

Re: Explementary angle

and since you are here, you can add "supplementary angle" definition

Re: Explementary angle

A picture would help, imho. Preferably two unequal angles: MathNerd's equilateral triangle example would probably work nicely. Yay!
