How many pairs of vertical angles are formed by five distinct lines that have a common point of intersection?

Vicky.

Thanks.

Code:

```                  *           *  J  *  A  *           *      *      *             *    *    *         I    *    *    *    B   *          *  *  *          *       *        *  *  *        *           *    * * *    *               *  ***  *       H          *          C               *  ***  *           *    * * *    *       *        *  *  *        *   *          *  *  *          *         G    *    *    *    D             *    *    *           *      *      *           *  F  *  E  *                   *```
I found twenty pairs.

In the list below, \$\displaystyle A\$ means \$\displaystyle \angle A\$
. . and \$\displaystyle AB\$ means \$\displaystyle A+B.\$

. . . . . . . . . . . . \$\displaystyle (A|F),\;(B|G),\;(C|H),\;(D|I),\;(E|J) \$

. . . . . . . . \$\displaystyle (AB|FG),\;(BC|GH),\;(CD|HI),\;(DE|IJ),\;(EF|JA)\$

. . . . \$\displaystyle (ABC|FGH),\;(BCD|GHI),\;(CDE|HIJ),\;(D{E}F|IJA),\; (EFG|JAB)\$

\$\displaystyle (ABCD|FGHI),\;(BCDE|GHIJ),\;(CD{E}F|HIJA),\;(D{E}F G|IJAB),\$ \$\displaystyle \;(EFGH|JABC)\$
