## Consecutive Interior Angles

Definitions When two lines are crossed by another line (Transversal), Consecutive Interior Angles are the pairs of angles on one side of the transversal, but inside the two lines. The 2 angles in purple (d and e) make one pair of consecutive interior angles, and the other 2 angles in red (c and f) make another … Continue reading "Consecutive Interior Angles"

## Parallel Lines

Lines are parallel if they are always the same distance apart (called “equidistant“), and will never meet. Definition of Parallel Lines Parallel lines in geometry are lines in a plane which do not meet. They don’t intersect each other at any point. By extension, a line & a plane, or 2 planes, in 3D Euclidean … Continue reading "Parallel Lines"
