Hi, I am solving now a geometry problem, and I wanted to ask if it is possible to have a negative value for an angle? I know that with the trigonometry functions it is possible, but I wanted to know if an angle of triangle can have a negative value? Thank you.

Hello there you can't have a negative value for an angle in the same sense that you can't have a negative value of a length a square and a volume. However, a negative sign might mean direction in the same sense it is used in vectors and trigonometry.
