A pair of intersecting lines creates 2 pairs of equal vertical angles and 4 pairs of supplementary angles.

Angles w and y are vertical and angles x and z are vertical angles.

The supplementary angle pairs are angles w and x, angles x and y, angles y and z, and angles z and w.

A Street intersects 1st and 2nd Streets. A Street needs to be repaved. In order to complete the project, the town needs to know the angle measure for the intersection marked x. If they know that one intersection is 100o, what is the measure of the intersection marked x?

A pair of parallel lines being crossed by a third line creates interior angles.

Interior angles on the same side of the line are called consecutive interior angles. They add to 180o.

100o + x = 180o

-100o -100o

x = 80o

John looked at the diagram below and stated that the measure of angle x should be 120o since

• 120o + 60o = 180o. Is John correct? Explain your reasoning.

Two consecutive interior angles measure xoand (x – 20)o. Find the actual measures of the angles.

Find the measure of angle x based on the diagram below.

Two angles are consecutive interior angles. If one angle measures 103o, what is the measure of the second angle?
