Chapter 3.2 Notes: Use Parallel Lines and Transversals
Goal: You will use angles formed by parallel lines and transversals.

Postulate 15 Corresponding Angles Postulate:
If two parallel lines are cut by a transversal, then the pairs of corresponding angles are congruent. Ex.1: The measure of three of the numbered angles is 120o. Identify the angles. Explain your reasoning.

Theorem 3.1 Alternate Interior Angles Theorem:
If two parallel lines are cut by a transversal, then the pairs of alternate interior angles are congruent. Theorem 3.2 Alternate Exterior Angles Theorem: If two parallel lines are cut by a transversal, then the pairs of alternate exterior angles are congruent. Theorem 3.3 Consecutive Interior Angles Thm: If two parallel lines are cut by a transversal, then the pairs of consecutive interior angles are supplementary.
