### Vertical Angles

Lesson 2.8

Opposite Rays:

Two collinear rays that have a common endpoint and extend in different directions

B

A

C

Ray AB and ray AC are opposite rays.

B

A

C

D

Ray BA and Ray CD are not opposite rays.

X

Y

V

U

Ray UV and Ray XY are not opposite rays. NO common end point.

Definition: Two angles are vertical angles if the rays forming the sides of one angle and the rays forming the sides of the other are opposite rays.

• Given
• Vertical angles are .
• If s are  to the same , they are  . (Transitive Property)
• 2  3
• 1  2
• 1 3

m 4 = 2x +5

m 5 = x + 30

Find the m4 and m6

Vertical angles are congruent so just set them equal to each other and solve for x.

REMEMBER to plug x back in to find the angle.

The measure of <6 = 180-55

= 125
