How much will a 33 Degree angle measure when observed under a microscope that magnifies 10 times?

33 degrees.
The other 327 degrees needed to make up a circle aren't going to be decreased by magnification, so there's nowhere to put any increase...

Like Rosy has said, the angle will be the same. All you are doing is increasing the magnification of the image.

Thanks Paul!  I figured it out when she told me...Kinda felt stupid there for a moment...hehe

Not so much!
You could actually magnify an angle, a little, exploiting diffraction: you make light enter a tiny hole before observing it.
(everything not to make you feel stupid, dear!  :))

Now that sheds an interesting light on things...LOL  Thanks Alberto, you are my hero!!! LOL  I just sat there staring at this and could not make heads nor tails of it...I am glad I figured out some of my other "stuff" LOL

OK, you say "You could actually magnify an angle, a little, exploiting diffraction: you make light enter a tiny hole before observing it."
How?
As Rosy said "The other 327 degrees needed to make up a circle aren't going to be decreased by magnification, so there's nowhere to put any increase..."
Difraction can do some clever things but I don't see how it can expand an angle.

It depends on what we mean with that term.
I intended that the angle through which you see the object is not more 33 but more than that, let's say 45, for example, because light is "bent" from the hole, because of diffraction. From this point of view only, it's like to have put a diverging (negative) lens befor our optical instrument.
Of course this doesn't mean at all that we can take a greater portion of solid angle of the light's source.
