Angle1+Angle2=360 degrees  Relationship Name?
Posted:

Two angles that sum to a right angle are called complimentary. Two angles that sum to a line are called supplementary angles.
Is there a name for two angles that sum to a ray (360 degrees) and if so what are they called?
I'm trying to name a Visual Basic function; ThreeHundredSixtyDegreesMinusTheAngle() is descriptive but lacks elegance in my opinion.
Thanks bob
