Definition When two lines are crossed by another line (Transversal): Alternate Interior Angles are a pair of angles on the inner side of each of those 2 lines but on opposite sides of the transversal. How To remember: The angle pairs are on Alternate sides of the Transversal, and they are on the Interior of … Continue reading "Alternate Interior Angles"

## Vertical Angles

Definition Vertical Angles are the angles opposite each other when two lines cross In this case, “Vertical” means they share the same corner point (Vertex), not the usual meaning of up-down. Example a° and b° are vertical angles. Vertical Angles are Congruent Angles The interesting thing here is that vertical angles are congruent angles: a° … Continue reading "Vertical Angles"

Read More## Geometry

Geometry is a branch of mathematics concerned with questions of shape, size, relative position of figures, & the properties of space. A mathematician who works in the field of geometry is called a geometer. There are some general concepts that are more or less fundamental to geometry. These include the concepts of points, lines, planes, … Continue reading "Geometry"

Angles of Elevation Angle of elevation is the angle from the horizontal upward to an object. An observer’s line of sight would be above horizontal line. The angle of elevation is angle formed by a horizontal line & line of sight up to an object when the object is above the line. When you see … Continue reading "Angles of Elevation & Depression"
