Types of lines and planes: (pg. 146)
Classifying Angles: (pg. 147)
Alternate interior angles
Same side angles
Alternate exterior angles
3-2: Angles Formed by Parallel
Lines and Transversals
Using the Corresponding Angles
Alternate interior angles are
Alternate exterior angles are
Same side interior angles are
Remember! The angles cannot be proven congruent
unless the lines are parallel. Look for: >>
3-3: Proving Lines Parallel
Postulate/Theorem If two lines are cut by a
transversal so that…
Converse of Corresponding Angles A pair of corresponding angles are
Converse of Alt. Interior angles A pair of alternate interior angles
Converse of Alt. exterior angles A pair of alternate exterior angles
Converse of Same Side Interior A pair of same side interior angles
Angles are supplementary
Then the lines are PARALLEL!
Pgs. 162 and 163
The shortest distance from a point to a line is the perpendicular
Write and solve an inequality for x.
3-4-1: Two lines form linear pair of congruent angles, lines are
Perpendicular Transversal Thm: A transversal is perpendicular to
one of 2 parallel lines, it is perp. to the other.
3-4-3: Two lines are perp. To the same line, the lines are
parallel to eachother.
Proving Properties of Lines (pg. 173)
Given: <ABC=90°, AD II EH
Prove: Line EH is perpendicular to BG
3-5: Slopes of Lines
Slope formula: y2-y1 (pg. 182)
Parallel Lines Theorem: Two lines are parallel if
they have the same slope.
Perpendicular Lines Theorem: two lines are
perpendicular if the product of their slopes is -1.
Parallel: line 1 slope a/b, line 2 slope a/b
Perpendicular: Line 2 slope a/b, line 2 slope –b/a
Common Mistake: Don’t
assume the lines are
perpendicular! They must
be exactly 90°. Check the
3-6: Lines in a Coordinate plane
Point Slope form: y-y =m(x-x )
Slope intercept form: y=mx+b
Same slope and y-intercept – coinciding lines
Different slopes and intercepts – intersecting
Same slope and different y-intercepts –
y=2x+3 -----slope intercept form
Plot the point (0,3), then rise 2 and
run one to find another point.
y+4=-3(x-2)-----point intercept form
The slope is -3 through the point (2,-
Plot the point (2,-4) and then rise -3
and run 1 to find another point.
(pg. 191 and 192)
Solve for y to find slope intercept form, then tell whether
the lines are parallel, intersecting or coinciding:
