###### Q & A

### What is the definition of parallel lines?

-Parallel lines are lines in a plane that do not intersect or meet; they are always the same distance apart and share the same slope.

### How do you determine if two lines are perpendicular?

-Two lines are perpendicular if they intersect at a right angle, which is 90 degrees.

### What is the relationship between the slopes of two perpendicular lines?

-The slopes of two perpendicular lines are negative reciprocals of each other. If one line has a slope of m, the other line's slope will be -1/m.

### What are alternate interior angles and how do they relate to parallel lines?

-Alternate interior angles are the angles that are on opposite sides of a transversal intersecting two parallel lines. They are congruent, meaning they have the same measure.

### What are corresponding angles and how do they compare on parallel lines?

-Corresponding angles are angles that occupy the same relative position on each of the two parallel lines intersected by a transversal. They are congruent, meaning they have the same measure.

### How do consecutive interior angles differ from alternate interior angles?

-Consecutive interior angles are the angles that are on the same side of a transversal and next to each other. They are supplementary, meaning they add up to 180 degrees, whereas alternate interior angles are on opposite sides of the transversal and are congruent.

### What is the definition of vertical angles?

-Vertical angles are the angles opposite each other when two lines intersect. They are congruent, meaning they have the same measure.

### What are complementary angles and how do they relate to each other?

-Complementary angles are two angles whose measures add up to 90 degrees. They are two angles that together form a right angle.

### What are supplementary angles and what is their sum?

-Supplementary angles are two angles whose measures add up to 180 degrees. They together form a straight line.

### How can you find the sum of interior angles of a polygon?

-The sum of interior angles of a polygon can be found using the formula (n - 2) * 180, where n is the number of sides of the polygon.

### What is the relationship between angles formed by two transversals intersecting two parallel lines?

-When two transversals intersect two parallel lines, they form various types of angles including alternate interior angles (congruent), consecutive interior angles (supplementary), and corresponding angles (congruent). The angles also follow the properties of vertical angles being congruent and supplementary angles adding up to 180 degrees.
