The Corresponding Angles Theorem states that if **two parallel lines are cut by a transversal line** then the pair of corresponding angles are congruent. Corresponding angles are angles formed when a transversal line cuts two lines and they lie in the same position at each intersection.

## What is a corresponding angle in geometry?

Corresponding angles in geometry are defined as the angles which are formed at corresponding corners with the transversal. When the two parallel lines are intersected by the transversal it forms the pair of corresponding angles.

## What pair of angles are corresponding angles?

Corresponding angles are pairs of angles that lie on the same side of the transversal in matching corners. One of the angles in the pair is an exterior angle and one is an interior angle. In the diagram below transversal l intersects lines m and n. ∠1 and ∠5 are a pair of corresponding angles.

## What are corresponding angles figures?

Definition: Corresponding angles are the angles which are formed in matching corners or corresponding corners with the transversal when two parallel lines are intersected by any other line (i.e. the transversal). For example, in the below-given figure, angle p and angle w are the corresponding angles.

## What are corresponding angles images?

When two lines are crossed by another line (called the Transversal): The angles in matching corners are called Corresponding Angles.

## Are corresponding angles equal to 180?

Corresponding angles are equal. Adjacent angles add up to 180 degrees. (d and c, c and a, d and b, f and e, e and g, h and g, h and f are also adjacent). d and f are interior angles.

## Which is the corresponding angle to 1?

Example: Using corresponding angles and straight angles, find the measures of the angles formed by the intersection of parallel lines m and n cut by transversal l below. ∠2 ≅ ∠60° since they are corresponding angles, and m and n are parallel. ∠1 and ∠2 form a straight angle, so ∠1=120°.

## What is a corresponding pair in geometry?

A pair of corresponding angles lie on the same side of the transversal. The corresponding pair of angles comprises one exterior angle and another interior angle. Not all corresponding angles are equal. Corresponding angles are equal if the transversal intersects two parallel lines.

## What are corresponding sides in geometry?

Corresponding sides touch the same two angle pairs. When the sides are corresponding it means to go from one triangle to another you can multiply each side by the same number.

## What is a corresponding?

1a: having or participating in the same relationship (such as kind, degree, position, correspondence, or function) especially with regard to the same or like wholes (such as geometric figures or sets) corresponding parts of similar triangles.
