This page covers the following topics:

When a line crosses over a pair of parallel lines, three different pairs of angles are created. One of these pairs of angles are called opposite angles.

When a line crosses over a pair of parallel lines, three different pairs of angles are created. One of these pairs of angles are called corresponding angles.

When a line crosses over a pair of parallel lines, three different pairs of angles are created. One of these pairs of angles are called alternate angles.

A line is drawn across a pair of parallel lines. Angles A and B are equal and the lines creating the two angles make an F shape. Are angles A and B corresponding angles?

# 6
