what's the difference between ajax and angular js??
I think they are both used to asynchronously update the webpage, so what is the difference?

You can think of AJAX as the ability to get data from a server without the need to refresh a webpage.
However, Angular extends this idea with two-way data binding. So the HTML elements on your front end page are in constant communication with your back end server--and vice versa. Angular can achieve other things as well and is useful for separating your concerns, i.e. separating your data, the functions performed on that data, and how the user sees the data.
ajax is where you get something from the server behind the scenes.. Angular is full blown framework that lets you do so much more..
