### Transcription: Angles and Parallel Lines

*Welcome back to Educator.com.*0000

*The next lesson is on angles and parallel lines.*0002

*OK, last lesson, we learned about the different special angle relationships, when we have a transversal.*0007

*The transversal with the other lines forms angles, and those pairs of angles have special relationships.*0017

*And one of them was the corresponding angles.*0030

*Now, the two lines that the transversal cuts through--remember: I said that the lines can be parallel, but they don't have to be.*0040

*So, even if the lines are not parallel, you are still going to have corresponding angles.*0050

*But then, now the postulate is saying that, if the lines are parallel, then the corresponding angles are congruent.*0056

*If these lines are parallel (let's say that they are parallel lines), then each pair of corresponding angles is congruent--only if the lines are parallel.*0068

*If we don't have parallel lines--if I have lines like this and like this--they are not parallel;*0083

*they don't look parallel, but I have a transversal--let's say 1 and 2: these angles are corresponding angles, but they are not congruent.*0093

*They are not congruent, but they are still corresponding; angles 1 and 2 are corresponding angles, but they are not congruent.*0105

*They are just called corresponding angles; so be very careful--only if the lines are parallel, then you can see that corresponding angles are congruent.*0112

*They are the same; they have the same measure; they are congruent.*0123

*Since these lines are parallel, I can say that angles 1 and 2 are congruent.*0127

*So, angle 1 is congruent to angle 2; and it goes with all of the pairs of corresponding angles,*0137

*like this one and this one--they are congruent...this one and this one, and this one and this one.*0145

*Each of the pairs of corresponding angles is congruent only if the lines are parallel--that is very, very important.*0152

*And that is a postulate; a postulate, remember, is any statement (such as this) that we can assume to be true.*0159

*It doesn't have to be proved; if it is a theorem (the next few are actually going to be theorems),*0170

* then they have to be proved in order for you to be able to use them, because it is not true until it is proven.*0176

*The next one: here is a theorem; now, we are not going to prove these theorems now, but they are shown in your textbooks.*0186

*The alternate interior angles theorem--just so you know, some kind of proof has to be shown for the theorems*0198

*in order for them to be counted as true and correct, and then, that is when we can use them.*0208

*But for now, since they are proven in your book, we are just going to go ahead and use them.*0214

*The alternate interior angles theorem says that, if two parallel lines are cut by a transversal*0219

*(meaning, if the two lines that are cut by a transversal are parallel), then each pair of alternate interior angles is congruent.*0225

*Again, from the last lesson: if I have two lines...now, I know I am repeating myself a lot,*0238

*but that is so that you will understand this, because I have seen a lot of students make careless mistakes with these,*0245

*always thinking that these are congruent; in this case, if I tell you that these lines are not parallel,*0258

*or if I don't even say anything about them being parallel, then you don't assume that they are parallel.*0265

*We just have to assume that they are not parallel; then we can't say that angle 1 and angle 2 are congruent.*0272

*We can say that they are alternate interior angles; that is the relationship; but they are not congruent in this case.*0277

*So, for lines being parallel (now I am telling you that the lines are parallel), then alternate interior angles*0286

*(let's say that this is angle 1 and angle 2)...angle 1 is congruent to angle 2.*0296

*If the lines that are cut by a transversal are parallel, then alternate interior angles are congruent; and that is the theorem, the other one.*0306

*The next one is the consecutive interior angles theorem: If two lines that are cut by a transversal are parallel,*0317

*then (this is the tricky part--not tricky, but this is the part that students really make mistakes on) the consecutive interior angles*0331

*are not congruent; they are supplementary--this is very important.*0344

*Consecutive interior angles, we know, are angles that are on the same side, like these two angles right here.*0351

*And they are both on the inside, the interior.*0357

*So, angles 1 and 2 are consecutive interior angles; but then, they are not congruent--they are supplementary.*0362

*Only if the lines are parallel, then consecutive interior angles are supplementary.*0369

*See how the other ones that we just went over are congruent: these are not congruent--they are supplementary.*0375

*You have to say that the measure of angle 1, plus the measure of angle 2, equals (supplementary means) 180.*0383

*That means that this angle measure, plus this angle measure, equals 180--very important.*0391

*And the next one: Alternate exterior angles, if the lines are parallel, are congruent.*0404

*So, here is a pair of alternate exterior angles; angle 1 is congruent to angle 2.*0415

*And that also works for this pair of alternate exterior angles, like 3 and 4; those will be congruent, also.*0425

*Here we have parallel lines that are cut by a transversal.*0442

*If AB (let's say that this is A, and here is point B--and these are the points, not the angles;*0445

*here is point C and point D...then AB is a line, so it is line AB) is parallel to line CD,*0460

*and line CA is parallel to line DB (and then I am going to add these parallel markers;*0471

*that means that these two are parallel lines, and then for these--this is another pair of parallel lines,*0484

*so that means that I have to draw two of them for these, because it is another pair), find the values of x and y.*0488

*So then, here we have 80; and then I need to take a look at x.*0500

*If I look for a relationship between this one and another one, even though these two have a relationship,*0508

*this has a variable x, and this has a variable z.*0517

*I would rather use this relationship, 4x and 80, because, if I am going to compare them, at least this one doesn't have another variable.*0521

*So, it is easier to solve; so then, if I look at these two, I am only dealing with this line, line AB, line CD, and line BD.*0530

*That means that line AC, I am going to ignore, because it is not involved in this pair of relationships.*0543

*Remember from the last lesson: you look at the pair, and when you have the special pair, it only has three lines involved.*0549

*It only has line AB, line CD, and line BD involved; the other lines that are there--cover them up.*0560

*Those lines are there for another pair of relationships, so just cover it up.*0567

*You don't need this line for this pair, so just ignore it.*0573

*And then, to solve it, the theorem (and the relationship between these two: they are alternate interior angles,*0583

*because BD would be the transversal between these two lines) says that if the two lines*0596

*cut by a transversal are parallel (which they are--we know that because it gives us that in here),*0604

*if the lines are parallel, then alternate interior angles are congruent.*0611

*Since the lines are parallel, I can say that these two angles are congruent.*0618

*Then, they are congruent, so 4x = 80; and I divide by 4: x = 20.*0621

*There is my x-value; and then, for my y, let's look at this one.*0638

*Well, with this one, I know that, since I have an 80 here, 80 is also congruent to this angle right here,*0651

*because they are corresponding, and I know that these two lines are parallel.*0667

*If these two lines are parallel, here is my transversal; that means that this angle right here and this angle right here are corresponding.*0670

*And as long as the two lines that are cut by the transversal are parallel, then corresponding angles are congruent.*0680

*So then, I can just write an 80 in here; and then, between this and this, they are vertical.*0685

*Now, I could have just done this angle right here to this right here; so there are many ways to look at it.*0694

*You can look at corresponding angles; if you didn't really see the alternate exterior angles--*0700

*if that is kind of hard for you to see--then you can just say that, OK, they are corresponding, and then these two are vertical.*0707

*And vertical angles, remember, are always congruent.*0711

*So, you can say that these two are the same, because they are vertical.*0717

*Or you can say that this and this are the same, because they are alternate exterior angles.*0722

*And those are the same, as long as the two lines are parallel.*0727

*So, either way: 4y + 10 = 80; then 4y = 70; so y = 35/2.*0730

*And that is just 70/4, and then you just simplify it to 35/2.*0755

*Now, it doesn't ask for the value of z, but let's just go ahead and solve it.*0765

*We know that 6z and 80 have a relationship.*0774

*Now, I know that this is 80, because we found x; x is 20; and 4 times x is 80;*0783

*and also because they are alternate interior angles, so whatever this is, this has to have the same measure.*0790

*So, either way we look at it: we can look at it as 6z with this one right here,*0798

*or we can look at this one with this one right here--same relationship, same value,*0801

*which also means that this one is also the same as 4x; this angle and this angle have the same measure.*0806

*Either way, the 6z with this angle right here are consecutive interior angles, or same-side interior angles.*0814

*Now, if the lines are parallel (which they are), then consecutive interior angles are supplementary--not congruent, but supplementary,*0826

*which means that I can't make them equal to each other.*0839

*Consecutive interior angles are the only ones that are not congruent from the special pairs of angles.*0844

*Supplementary--that means that I have to make 6z + 80 equal to 180.*0851

*6z = 100; z = 100/6, and then I can just simplify this to 50/3, and that is it; that is z.*0859

*OK, the last theorem from this section in this lesson is the perpendicular transversal theorem.*0897

*Perpendicular, we know, are two lines that intersect to form a right angle.*0904

*So, if I have a line like this and a line like this, and they form a right angle, then they are perpendicular.*0911

*But then, here we have a transversal involved; so in a plane, if a line is perpendicular to one of the two parallel lines, then it is perpendicular to the other.*0918

*Here are my parallel lines; I am going to show it by doing that.*0932

*If my transversal, which is this line right here, is perpendicular to just one of the lines*0936

*(it doesn't matter which one), as long as these lines are parallel (they have to be parallel),*0943

*if it is perpendicular to one of the lines, then it has to be perpendicular to the other line.*0951

*If this is perpendicular to this line, then it is going to be perpendicular to this line, as well.*0960

*And that is the perpendicular transversal theorem.*0967

*Now, if the two lines are not parallel (let's say like this), and then I tell you that this line is perpendicular to this line,*0969

*it is not going to be perpendicular to this line, because these lines are not parallel.*0983

*In this case, don't assume that it is perpendicular to both--that is only if the lines are parallel.*0990

*Let's do a few examples: State the postulate or theorem that allows you conclude that angle 1 is congruent to angle 2.*0999

*Now, remember: the only postulate was the corresponding angles one: that is the one where you have the angles in the same corner,*1007

*in the same position, in the same corner of the intersection--that is the corresponding angles postulate.*1015

*Everything else--the consecutive interior angles theorem, the alternate interior angles theorem,*1026

*the alternate exterior angles theorem--those are all theorems; so the only one is the corresponding angles postulate.*1034

*Here, what postulate or theorem allows you to conclude that angle 1 is congruent to angle 2?*1043

*We know that this is our transversal line, because it is the one that cuts through two or more lines.*1051

*Then, angle 1 and angle 2 are alternate exterior angles.*1056

*Now, if these two lines are parallel, then we can conclude that angle 1 is congruent to angle 2; let me show that these two lines are parallel, too.*1063

*Then, this would be the alternate exterior angles theorem.*1073

*And this one right here--we know that these are corresponding angles.*1097

*And the only way that the postulate will make them congruent (the only way we can apply the postulate) is if these two lines are parallel, which they are.*1106

*So, I can say that, by the corresponding angles postulate, angle 1 is congruent to angle 2.*1114

*All right, the next one: In the figure, line e is parallel to line f.*1134

*So, let me show this; it doesn't matter which way--I can just do like this, or I can just do like that.*1142

*AB is parallel to CD, so this one is parallel to this; and the measure of angle 1 is 73.*1149

*I am going to write that in blue; so this is 73, right here.*1158

*Find the measure of the numbered angles.*1165

*All of the numbered angles is what it is asking for.*1169

*Let's look at this: to look for the measure of angle 2, I know that angle 1 and angle 2 are supplementary, because they are a linear pair.*1175

*They form a line, and a line is 180 degrees.*1190

*So, all linear pairs are supplementary; so since linear pairs are supplementary, and these are a linear pair,*1196

*I can say that 73 plus the measure of angle 2 equals 180.*1208

*And then, to find the measure of angle 2, I have to subtract the 73; so the measure of angle 2 equals 107.*1218

*And then, the next one: the measure of angle 3--well, if you look at this, we know that these two lines are parallel.*1235

*This line intersects both of the parallel lines; so this is a transversal--this line segment AB is a transversal,*1246

*which means that angle 2 and angle 3 are alternate interior angles.*1256

*And by the alternate interior angles theorem, since the lines are parallel, we know that these angles are congruent.*1263

*Since the measure of angle 2 is 107, I can say that the measure of angle 3 is 107.*1272

*And then, the measure of angle 4: it is also alternate interior angles with angle 1, so by that theorem, again,*1284

*since the two lines are parallel, those two will be the same; so it is 73.*1303

*Then, the measure of angle 5 is corresponding with angle 5; angle 5 and angle 1 are corresponding,*1314

*because it is as if I extend this line segment, just to help me out here: these two lines are parallel;*1324

*here is my transversal; can you see that?--this is a line, and this is a line; here is that transversal;*1332

*angle 1 and angle 5 are corresponding, so if this is 73, then the measure of angle 5 has to be 73.*1344

*And then, the measure of angle 6--you can say that angle 6 is also corresponding with angle 3.*1354

*So, if you extend this out again, there is my intersection, angle 3, and then my intersection, angle 6.*1368

*The measure of angle 3 is 107, so the measure of angle 6 is also 107.*1378

*Angle 7 is alternate interior angles with angle 6, so that has to be the same, since the lines are parallel.*1386

*And the two lines involved would be this line and this line--can you see that?--this line and this line, and here is my transversal.*1399

*These two lines are parallel, so angle 6 and angle 7 are congruent by the alternate interior angles theorem.*1408

*And then, the last one, the measure of angle 8: it is supplementary with angle 6, because it is a linear pair.*1421

*Or it is alternate interior angles with angle 5, or it is corresponding with angle 4; there are a lot of different relationships going on here.*1431

*If you want to use the alternate interior angles theorem with angle 5 and angle 8, then it is going to be 73.*1447

*If you want to look at the corresponding angles postulate with angle 4, then it is also 73.*1457

*If you want to say that it is supplementary with angle 6 (it is a supplement to angle 6), then it is 180 - 107, which is 73.*1463

*You can look at it in many different ways.*1475

*That is it: see how all of the angle measures are either 73 or 107.*1482

*Since all of these lines are parallel--these pairs are parallel, and those two pairs of lines are parallel--*1488

*they are going to have only two different numbers, because all of their relationships are congruent or supplementary.*1498

*So, it is either going to be congruent, or it is just going to be a supplement to it.*1507

*Another example: BC is parallel to DE (that is already shown); the measure of angle 1 is 61 (this is 61);*1514

*the measure of angle 2 is 43; and the measure of angle 3 is 35.*1527

*This one is going to be a little bit more difficult, because we have lines that are closing in on the sides.*1539

*And sometimes it is going to be a little confusing, or a little bit hard to see the lines that you need to see.*1549

*And you are going to have to ignore these.*1561

*So, look at angle...let's see...3 and angle 4; if you look at BE as a transversal, and these two*1564

*as the lines that the transversal is intersecting, 3 and 4 are alternate interior angles.*1584

*But these two lines are not parallel--those two lines that the transversal is intersecting are not parallel.*1594

*So, you can't assume that they are congruent; you can't say that they are congruent, because look: the two lines are intersecting.*1602

*Even though they are alternate interior angles, you can't apply the theorem saying that they are congruent, because the lines are not parallel.*1612

*You have to be very careful; you can't say that angle 4 is 35 degrees.*1620

*OK, so what can we say? We know that this line segment right here is parallel to this line right here.*1626

*I can say that the measure of angle 5...because look at this: this angle 5 and angle 2 are alternate interior angles;*1641

*now, let's see if we can apply the theorem and say that they are congruent.*1658

*Here is my transversal; here are the two lines that the transversal is intersecting; are the two lines parallel?*1663

*Yes, they are parallel; now, ignore this side and this side, AD and AE, because you don't need them.*1671

*It is as if they are not even there; cover it up.*1681

*Angle 5 doesn't involve those lines; angle 2 doesn't involve those lines.*1684

*So, all you have to see is this right here; here is BC; there is angle 5 and angle 2.*1690

*Here, these are parallel; here is 5, and here is 2.*1700

*So then, these are alternate interior angles, and they are congruent, because their lines are parallel.*1708

*The measure of angle 5 would be 43.*1716

*And then, from here, I can say that the measure of angle 7...if you look at angle 7 and angle 1, I have a transversal;*1721

*there is my angle 7, and there is my angle 1; these two lines are parallel.*1752

*See how it is only involving the three lines, this line, this line, and this line.*1760

*Ignore BE; see how I didn't draw it, because it is not involved.*1766

*Ignore all of the other lines; just look at those three lines for angle 1 and angle 7.*1769

*If it helps, you can draw it again; this one is a little bit hard to see using this diagram,*1774

*so if it helps you like this, then just draw it again, just using those three lines.*1779

*Angle 7 and angle 1 are corresponding; and since the lines are parallel, I can use the postulate to say that angle 1 and angle 7 are congruent.*1785

*So, the measure of angle 7 is 61.*1794

*So then, the ones that I found: this is 43; this is 61.*1799

*OK, to find the measure of angle 4, I can say that, because all these three angles right here form a linear pair,*1807

*that the measure of angle 7 plus the measure of angle 5 plus the measure of angle 4--they are all going to add up to 180,*1824

*because they form a straight line; all three angles right here are going to form a 180-degree angle.*1833

*You can say that the measure of angle...not 1....4, plus 61, plus 43, equals 180.*1844

*The measure of angle 4, plus 104, equals 180; you subtract the 104, so the measure of angle 4 equals 76; here is 76.*1861

*All of this is the one that I found, so I will write this in red: 76.*1890

*And then, let's look at some other ones: now, if you look at angle 8, angle 8 also involves this parallel line.*1895

*But this one is a little bit harder to see, because you have angle 8 like that; what is this angle right here?*1915

*This is angles 2 and 3 together; it is this angle and this whole thing.*1930

*Now, ignore this line; you are just involving this line, this transversal, and this bottom line DE.*1936

*So, this BE is not there; so it would just be this whole angle together.*1946

*So then, see how this angle right here and this angle right here are corresponding.*1954

*But this has another line coming out of it like this to separate it into angles 2 and 3.*1961

*All I have to do is add up angles 2 and 3, and that is going to be my angle 8.*1970

*This is going to be 78 degrees, and since the lines are parallel, the corresponding postulate says that they are congruent; that equals 78.*1975

*I will write that here: 78; and then, this 78 and angle 6 are going to form a linear pair.*1993

*Right here, 78 +...now, since this is angle 6 right here, you can look at angle 6 and this angle right here,*2013

*78 degrees, because that is angles 2 and 3 combined; they are going to be consecutive interior angles.*2029

*And they are supplementary; so you can just do angle 6 + 78 = 180, which is the same thing as looking at this.*2038

*These are supplementary, so angle 6 and angle 8 (78) are going to add up to 180.*2049

*It is the same thing: the measure of angle 6, plus 78, is going to equal 180.*2055

*The measure of angle 6: if I subtract 78, then you get 102, so this is 102.*2070

*Now, with angle 9, to find the measure of angle 9, that is actually going to involve using the triangles,*2088

*because the only relationship that this angle has with any of the other angles is that it forms within the triangle.*2099

*And see how angle 9 is not supplementary; it doesn't form a linear pair; there is no transversal involved with angle 9.*2111

*It is just these two angles, or those two right there.*2120

*Angle 9 is actually going to involve what is called the triangle sum theorem, where the three angles of a triangle are going to add up to 180.*2125

*So, we haven't gone over that yet; if you want, you can just say that the measure of angle 9, plus 61 (this angle),*2134

*plus the 78, is going to equal 180, and then find the measure of angle 9 that way.*2146

*You can also look at this big triangle and say that this angle, plus this angle, plus this angle, are going to add up to 180.*2151

*You can also look at it as this triangle right here, saying the measure of angle 9 plus 75, together, and then 3, are going to be 180.*2163

*And then, find the measure of angle 9 that way.*2175

*So, for now, we are just going to solve for these; and that is it for this problem.*2179

*The last example: Find the values of x, y, and z.*2186

*Here you have three lines: now, these three lines are going to be parallel.*2192

*I am going to make them parallel, so that I can solve for these values.*2199

*Now, the only angle that is given is right here, 118.*2203

*If you look at this, again, we have four lines involved; and to form special angle relationships, you only need three lines.*2209

*You need the transversal and the two lines that it intersects to form those pairs of angles.*2219

*Whichever lines you are using, always keep them in mind, and then look at what line you are not going to use,*2228

* and ignore that line, since we have four and we only need three.*2238

*Using this angle right here, 118, I can say that now this one right here and 11z + 8 are corresponding.*2245

*And then, this one right here and this one right here are alternate exterior angles, because it is involving these three lines, and not this one right here.*2262

*These would be alternate exterior angles.*2273

*Or, if I ignore this middle line, and I just say that this transversal with this line and this line*2276

*(again, ignoring the middle line--pretending it is not there), then 118, this angle right here, with x, would be alternate exterior angles.*2290

*Imagine if you have a line, a line...here is your transversal; the middle line is not there; this is x, and then this is 118.*2303

*You see that it is alternate exterior angles.*2314

*So then, I can say that x is equal to 118, because the lines are parallel.*2319

*And so then, I can apply the alternate exterior angles theorem, saying that that relationship, that pair, is congruent.*2325

*The next one: let's look at z; this one right here, 11z + 8, is going to equal 118.*2337

* Why?--because, if I look at this line, with this line and this transversal, they are going to be corresponding angles.*2346

*And then, since the lines are parallel, the corresponding angles postulate says that they are congruent.*2358

*11z + 8 = 118; so if you subtract the 8, 11z = 110; z = 10.*2366

*There is my x; there is my z; and then, I have to find y now.*2387

*For my y, I can say that this angle with 118--they are not congruent, remember, because they are going to form a linear pair.*2392

*They form a line, so they are going to be supplementary.*2407

*You can also note that this angle is 118, remember, because we said that they were corresponding--this one with this one.*2412

*So, since this is 118, this angle with this angle would be consecutive interior angles.*2421

*And if the lines are parallel, then the theorem says that they are supplementary, not congruent.*2430

*So, either way, 3y + 2 =...not 180; you have to say that this whole thing, plus the 118, is going to equal 180.*2436

*3y + 2 = 62, and then, if you subtract the 2, then 3y is going to equal 60; y is going to equal 20.*2456

*x is 118; y is 20; and z is 10; just remember to keep looking for those relationships between the pairs.*2474

*You can also definitely use the linear pair, if they are supplementary; you can definitely use that.*2482

*If they are vertical, definitely use that, because you know that vertical angles are congruent.*2490

*So, any of those things--you have a lot of different concepts that you learn that will help you solve these types of problems.*2499

*That is it for this lesson; thank you for watching Educator.com.*2510

I think question 1 in "Practice Questions" needs to be more specific.

It asks nothing about postulates.

One of the practice questions says that 180-125=65. This is incorrect, it's like three or four questions in. Please correct
