Parallel &amp; Perpendicular Lines and Transversals
Target Goal:
 Prove and use results about parallel lines and transversals.
Corresponding Angles Postulate
If 2 parallel lines are cut by a transversal, then corresponding angles are congruent.
Thm 3.4 Alternate Interior Angle
If 2 parallel lines are cut by a transversal, then alternate interior angles are congruent.
Thm 3.5 Consecutive Interior Angles
If 2 parallel lines are cut by a transversal, then consecutive interior angles are supp.
Thm 3.6 Alternate Exterior Angles
If 2 parallel lines are cut by a transversal, then alternate exterior angles are congruent.
Thm 3.7 Perpendicular Transversal
If a transversal is perpendicular to one of 2 parallel lines, then it is perpendicular to the
other.
