# Thread: Geo HW not AT ALL making sense

1. ## Geo HW not AT ALL making sense

Hey guys, so my math teacher gave us a link on the web to our HW. Its worth 100 points (which is a superflous amount of points) and I am awful with proofs. I hate to ask for answers but I also have to take notes on a entire S.S. chapter tonight. http://departments.xavierhs.org/math...s/gws_05-3.pdf

If someone could help me with this then I can reward you big time

BTW I only need answers to the proofs. The rest is easy. But most of the WS is proofs

2. Well I don't remember any of the actual wordings of the theorems but anyway...

1) mKPM=70
mOPM=120
mO=60
mOKP=70
2) I think this is the Alternate exterior angles theorem
3) I don't remember but you can prove that the angles are congruent and then show the lines to be indeed ||
4) Alternate interior angles or something like that - if lines || and cut by trans. then the angles add up to 180 degrees
5) I would show that both lines have the same slope and are thus ||

If you need the reasons for number one let me know

3. Thanks. I dont believe I need the reaons for #1, it just says find them. What you said would make sense though.

4. By when do you need the others? I am doing my own math HW right now but could figure out the others after I am done.

If you're interested in understanding how to get the answer I would have thought the reasons would be fairly important ....

Well like an hour
You dont need to rush though. Thanks

Ditto ^. I really like what you all have going here (MHF) but do not understand the point of just posting an answer since the person needing the answer is going to fall flat upon their next time they encounter a similar problem - but oh well.

8. Sorry. I thought it would be rude to ask for them. But ok, what are they?

EDIT: Dont rush with the reaons, but I am starting to get it. All I dont get it #6 and #9. And remember I can thank anyone who helps. Also, I dont NEED answers now, just some big HELP with 6 and 9
