which do not intersect?
Parallel

C
A solid arrow placed
on two lines of a
diagram indicate the
lines are parallel.
The symbol || is used to
indicate parallel lines.
AB || CD
A slash through the parallel symbol || indicates the
lines are not parallel.

Skew Lines
Two lines are skew if they are not in the
same plane and do not intersect.
AB does not intersect
CD .

Since the lines are not
in the same plane,
they are skew lines.

Parallel lines are coplanar lines that do not
intersect.
Lines in different planes that do not intersect
are skew.
Parallel planes are planes that do not
intersect.
Perpendicular lines – lines that intersect and
form right angles

3-1 Lines and Angles
Today you will learn to
identify angles formed
by parallel lines and a
transversal.
Transversals

If you have 2
coplanar lines that
are intersected by a
third (called a
transversal), special
angle pairs are
formed.
Transversal
Interior Angles

Angles between the
two lines are interior
angles.
Exterior Angles

Angles outside of
the two lines are
exterior angles.
Same Side Angles

Angles on the same
side of the transversal
are same side angles.
Alternate Angles

Angles on the opposite
side of the transversal
are alternate angles.
Combined Angles

The types of angles
mentioned previously
are only useful to us in
certain combinations:
–
–
–
–
Alternate interior
Same side interior
Alternate exterior
Same side exterior
(rarely used)
Corresponding Angles


If two angles occupy
the same relative
position at each of the
points of intersection,
they are corresponding
angles.
Which pairs of angles
are corresponding?

Parallel Lines & Transversals

Parallel lines are lines
in the same plane that
do not intersect.


When a transversal
intersects parallel
lines, the special
angles pairs take on
certain properties.


These arrows are how
parallel lines are
marked on a diagram.
Parallel Lines Cut by a Transversal


Get into pairs. On a sheet of paper, draw two
parallel lines (either both horizontal or vertical).
Now use your ruler to draw a transversal that
intersects both parallel lines.

Parallel Postulate
(Remember, a postulate is
something we accept as true
without proof.)
 If parallel lines are
intersected by a transversal,
then the corresponding
angles are congruent.
 In other words, if a ll b, then
1  2.

Parallel Lines & Transversal
Parallel lines and transversals
form special angles:
 Corresponding angles are
congruent
 Alternate interior angles are
congruent
 Same side interior angles
are supplementary
 Alternate exterior angles
are congruent
A Special Case


If there are a pair of
parallel lines, and a
transversal is
perpendicular to one of
them, then it is
perpendicular to the
other.
If a ll b and a  t, then
b  t.
