From Latin: includere "to shut in, enclose"
made by two lines with a common
When two lines meet at a common point (vertex)
the angle between them is called the included angle.
The two lines define the angle. So for example in the figure above we could refer to the angle ∠ABC
as the "included angle of BA and BC".
Or we could refer to "BA and BC and their included angle".
