90 (ninety) is the natural number preceded by 89 and followed by 91.

In English speech, the numbers 90 and 19 are often confused, as sounding very similar. When carefully enunciated, they differ in which syllable is stressed: 19 /naɪnˈtiːn/ vs 90 /ˈnaɪnti/. However, in dates such as 1999, and when contrasting numbers in the teens and when counting, such as 17, 18, 19, the stress shifts to the first syllable: 19 /ˈnaɪntiːn/.

Interstate 90 is a freeway that runs from Washington to Massachusetts.

In mathematics[edit]

In normal space, the interior angles of a rectangle measure 90 degrees each. Also, in a right triangle, the angle opposing the hypotenuse measures 90 degrees, with the other two angles adding up to 90 for a total of 180 degrees.[7] Thus, an angle measuring 90 degrees is called a right angle.[8]

In science[edit]
