Sec 3.3 Angle Addition Postulate & Angle Bisector

### Objective: What we’ll learn…

• Find the measure of an angle by using Angle Addition Postulate.

• Find the measure of an angle by using definition of Angle Bisector.

Angle Addition Postulate

First, let’s recall some previous information from last week….

We discussed the Segment Addition Postulate, which stated that we could add the lengths of adjacent segments together to get the length of an entire segment.

For example:

JK + KL = JL

If you know that JK = 7 and KL = 4, then you can conclude that JL = 11.

The Angle Addition Postulate is very similar, yet applies to angles. It allows us to add the measures of adjacent angles together to find the measure of a bigger angle…

### Postulate 2-2 Segment Addition Postulate

If Q is between P and R, then

PQ + QR = PR.

If PQ +QR = PR, then Q is between P and R.

4x + 6

R

P

Q

PQ = 2x QR = 4x + 6 PR = 60

Use the Segment Addition Postulate find the measure of PQ and QR.

Step 1:

PQ + QR = PR (Segment Addition)

2x + 4x + 6 = 60

6x + 6 = 60

6x = 54

x =9

PQ = 2x = 2(9) = 18

QR =4x + 6 = 4(9) + 6 = 42

Step 2:

Step 3:

Step 4:

### Steps

• Draw and label the Line Segment.

• Set up the Segment Addition/Congruence Postulate.

• Set up/Solve equation.

• Calculate each of the line segments.

This is a special example, because the two adjacent angles together create a straight angle.

Predict what mÐABD + mÐDBC equals.

ÐABC is a straight angle, therefore mÐABC = 180.

mÐABD + mÐDBC = mÐABC

mÐABD + mÐDBC = 180

So, if mÐABD = 134,

then mÐDBC = ______

J

Given: mÐGHK = 95

mÐGHJ = 114.

Find: mÐKHJ.

The Angle Addition Postulate tells us:

mÐGHK + mÐKHJ = mÐGHJ

95 + mÐKHJ = 114

mÐKHJ = 19.

Plug in what you know.

Given:

mÐRSV = x + 5

mÐVST = 3x - 9

mÐRST = 68

Find x.

Slide 4

Extension: Now that you know x = 18, find mÐRSV and mÐVST.

mÐRSV = x + 5

mÐRSV = 18 + 5 = 23

mÐVST = 3x - 9

mÐVST = 3(18) – 9 = 45

Check:

mÐRSV + mÐVST = mÐRST

23+ 45 =68

S

T

Set up an equation using the Angle Addition Postulate.

mÐRSV + mÐVST = mÐRST

x + 5 + 3x – 9= 68

4x- 4 = 68

4x = 72

x = 18

Plug in what you know.

Solve.

mÐBQC = x – 7 mÐCQD = 2x – 1 mÐBQD = 2x + 34

Find x, mÐBQC, mÐCQD, mÐBQD.

B

mÐBQC = x – 7

mÐBQC = 42 – 7 = 35

mÐCQD = 2x – 1

mÐCQD = 2(42) – 1 = 83

mÐBQD = 2x + 34

mÐBQD = 2(42) + 34 = 118

Check:

mÐBQC + mÐCQD = mÐBQD

35+83 = 118

Q

D

mÐBQC + mÐCQD = mÐBQD

x – 7 + 2x – 1 = 2x + 34

3x – 8 = 2x + 34

x – 8 = 34

x = 42

x = 42

mÐCQD = 83

ANSWER

Congruent Angles

Two angles are congruent if they have the same measure.

Congruent angles in a diagram are marked by matching arcs at the vertices .

Identify all pairs of congruent angles in the diagram.

In the diagram, m∠Q = 130° , m∠R = 84°, and m∠ S = 121° . Find the other angle measures in the diagram.

In the diagram at the right, YWbisectsXYZ, and mXYW = 18. Find m XYZ.

o

m XYZ = m XYW + m WYZ = 18° + 18° = 36°.

SOLUTION

Angle Addition Postulate

Substitute angle measures.

145 = 6x + 7

Combine like terms.

138 = 6x

Subtract 7 from each side.

23 = x

Divide each side by 6.

STEP 2

Evaluate the given expressions when x = 23.

mLKM = (2x+ 10)° = (2 23+ 10)° = 56°

mMKN = (4x– 3)° = (4 23– 3)° = 89°

So, m LKM = 56°and m MKN = 89°.

### Construct the bisector of an angleusing a compass and straight edge

• Using the vertex O as a center, draw an arc to meet the arms of the angle (at X and Y).

• Using X as a center and the same radius, draw a new arc.

• Using Y as center and the same radius, draw an overlapping arc.

• Mark the point where the arcs meet.

• The bisector is the line from O to this point.
