Opposite angles are two angles that have a common vertex but
not a common side that are formed by intersecting lines.
Opposite angles formed by straight lines have the same measure.
For example, b and d are opposite angles and have the same                                                  a
measure. (They form an X-pattern.)                                                                        b         d

Supplementary angles are two angles whose sum is 180.
For example, a and b are supplementary angles.

Complementary angles are two angles whose sum is 90.
For example, c and d are complementary angles.

each angle?

Perpendicular lines intersect at a 90 angle.                                                                       E
For example, AB and EF are perpendicular lines.
A                         B
Parallel lines are lines in the same plane that do not intersect.
For example, AB and CD are parallel lines.                                                           C                         D

A transversal is a line or line segment that intersects two or more lines.                                          F
For example, EF is a transversal.

When a transversal intersects two lines, b and f are defined as                                                        b a
corresponding angles. d and h are another pair of corresponding                                                       c d
angles. (They form a F-pattern.) Also, d and f are called alternate                                               f e
angles. c and e are another pair of alternate angles.                                                            g h
(They form a Z-pattern.)

Moreover, when a transversal intersects parallel lines, corresponding
angles and alternate angles are equal.

6.       Identify each pair of angles as alternate or corresponding angles.

An interior angle of a polygon is the angle formed at a vertex of the polygon that lies
inside the region enclosed by the polygon.

sides. Alternately, isosceles triangles can be
defined as triangles with two equal angles.
For example, AB and AC are equal, so ∆ABC is an
isosceles triangle. Also, angles ABC and ACB are
equal.                                                                 B               C

Equilateral triangles are triangles with all three
sides equal.
(Using the fact isosceles triangles have two equal
angles, we find that all the angles of an equilateral

The name isosceles comes from the Greek iso,
which means “same,” and skelos, which means “leg.”
(A leg of a triangle is one of its sides.)
