    Question Transversal & Supplementary Angles

    Please have a look at the image below where m & n are 2 parallel lines & t is a transversal. Now

    angle 1 + angle 2 = 180 degrees

    because interior angles on the same side of the transversal are supplementary but can (angle 1 + angle 2) be called supplementary angles?

    Thanks,

    Ron

    yes, angle 1 and angle 2 can be called a pair of supplementary angles ... supplementary angles do not need to be adjacent.

    an adjacent pair of supplementary angles is called a linear pair of angles.
