### Transversals & Special Angles

Objectives:

1.) To identify transversals

2.) To identify angles formed by lines and their transversals

Mrs. McConaughy Geometry

A transversalis a line that intersects two or more coplanar lines in two or more distinct points.

Special Angle Pairs Formed by Two Lines and a Transversal

Recall, linear pairs of angles and vertical angles!

When a transversal intersects two lines, some special angle pairs are formed.
