GEOMETRY THEOREMS AND POSTULATES PDF

If a transversal intersects two lines and the alternate interior angles are congruent, then the lines are parallel. The alternate interior angles have the same degree measures because the lines are parallel to geometry theorems and postulates other.

## Postulates and Theorems

Congruent Complements Theorem If two angles are complements of the same angle or of congruent anglesthen the two angles are congruent. Congruent Supplements Theorem If two angles are supplements of the same angle or of congruent anglesthen the two angles are congruent. Right Angles Theorem All right geometry theorems and postulates are congruent.

Same-Side Interior Angles Theorem If a transversal intersects two parallel lines, then the interior angles on the same side of the transversal are supplementary.

If a transversal intersects two lines and the interior angles on the same side of the transversal are supplementary, then the lines are parallel. Vertical Angles Theorem If two angles are vertical angles, then they have equal measures. The vertical angles have equal degree measures.

There are two pairs of vertical angles. GHK First, we must rely on the information we are geometry theorems and postulates to begin our proof.

### Postulates and Theorems

In this geometry theorems and postulates, we note that the measure of? From the illustration provided, we also see that lines DJ and EK are parallel to each other. Therefore, we can utilize some of the angle theorems above in order to find the measure of? We realize that there exists a relationship between?

Thus, we can utilize the Corresponding Angles Postulate to determine that?

Since they are vertical angles, we can use the Vertical Angles Theorem, to see that? Now, by transitivity, we have that? Congruent angles have equal degree measures, so the measure of? DGH is equal to the measure of?

### Angle Properties, Postulates, and Theorems

Finally, we use substitution to conclude that the measure of? This argument is organized in two-column proof form below.

STQ We begin our proof with the fact that the measures of? In our second step, we use the Reflexive Property to show that? Though trivial, the previous step was necessary because it set us up to use the Addition Property of Equality by showing that adding the measure of?

Then, by the Angle Addition Postulate we geometry theorems and postulates that? PTR is the sum of? Altitude Rule The altitude to the hypotenuse of a right triangle is the mean proportional between the segments into which it divides the hypotenuse. Leg Rule Each leg geometry theorems and postulates a right triangle is the mean proportional between the hypotenuse and the projection of the leg on the hypotenuse.

Corresponding Angles If two parallel lines are cut by a transversal, then the pairs of corresponding angles are congruent.
