Using Properties of Parallel Lines

m 6 = m 5 = 65°

Vertical Angles Theorem

m 7 =180° – m 5 =115°

Linear Pair Postulate

m 8 = m 5 = 65°

find each measure. Tell

which postulate or theorem

you use.

Estimating Earth’s Circumference: History Connection

Over 2000 years ago Eratosthenes estimated Earth’s circumference by using the fact that the Sun’s rays are parallel.

When the Sun shone exactly down a vertical well in Syene, he measured the angle the Sun’s rays made with a vertical stick in Alexandria. He discovered that

How did Eratosthenes know that m 1 = m 2 ?

The distance from Syene to Alexandria was believed to be 575 miles

Estimating Earth’s Circumference: History Connection

Because the Sun’s rays are parallel,

Angles 1 and 2 are alternate interior angles, so

By the definition of congruent angles,

How did Eratosthenes know that m 1 = m 2 ?

m 1 = m 2

SOLUTION

Using the Third Angles Theorem

Find the value of x.

SOLUTION

In the diagram, NR and LS.

From the Third Angles Theorem, you know that MT.

So, m M = m T.

From the Triangle Sum Theorem, m M = 180˚– 55˚ – 65˚ = 60˚.

m M= m T

Third Angles Theorem

60˚ = (2x+ 30)˚

Substitute.

30 = 2x

Subtract 30 from each side.

15 = x

Divide each side by 2.

SOLUTION

AC = 3 and FH= 3

AB = 5 and FG= 5

Congruent Triangles in a Coordinate Plane

d = (x2 – x1 )2+ (y2 – y1 )2

d = (x2 – x1 )2+ (y2 – y1 )2

BC = (–4 – (–7))2+ (5– 0)2

GH = (6 – 1)2+ (5– 2)2
