Properties of Angle Congruence ReflexiveFor any angle, A <A <A. SymmetricIf <A <B, then <B <A. TransitiveIf <A <B and <B <C, then <A <C.

Right Angle Congruence Theorem All right angles are congruent..... A B C X Y Z

Congruent Supplements Theorem If two angles are supplementary to the same angle, then they are congruent – If m<1 + m<2 = 180° and m<2 + m<3 = 180°, then m<1 = m<3 or

Congruent Complements Theorem If two angles are complementary to the same angle, then the two angles are congruent. – If m<4 + m<5 = 90° and m<5 + m<6 = 90°, then m<4 = m<6 or

Linear Pair Postulate If two angles form a linear pair, then they are supplementary. 12 m<1 + m<2 = 180°

Example: < 1 and < 2 are a linear pair. If m<1 = 78°, then find m<2.

Vertical Angles Theorem Vertical angles are congruent. 1 2 3 4

Example <1 and <2 are complementary angles. <1 and <3 are vertical angles. If m<3 = 49°, find m<2.
