### What is Meant by the Reference Angle?

In mathematics, the reference angle is defined as the acute angle and it is measuring less than 90 degrees. It is always the smallest angle, and it makes the terminal side of an angle with the x-axis. The reference angle is used for the purpose of the simplification of the calculations in the trigonometric function value at different angles. It is noted that, even for the larger angles, the reference angle should be less than 90 degrees.
