Angles
Properties of Angle Congruence
Reflexive
For any angle, A <A  <A.
Symmetric
If <A  <B, then <B  <A.
Transitive
If <A  <B and <B  <C,
then <A  <C.
Right Angle Congruence Theorem
• All right angles are congruent.

Congruent Supplements Theorem
•
If two angles are supplementary to the same angle,
then they are congruent
– If m<1 + m<2 = 180° and m<2 + m<3 = 180°,
then m<1 = m<3 or  1   3
Congruent Complements Theorem
•
If two angles are complementary to the same
angle, then the two angles are congruent.
– If m<4 + m<5 = 90° and m<5 + m<6 = 90°,
then m<4 = m<6 or  4   6
Linear Pair Postulate
• If two angles form a linear pair, then they are
supplementary.

m<1 + m<2 = 180°
Example:
• < 1 and < 2 are a linear pair.
If m<1 = 78°, then find m<2.
Vertical Angles Theorem
•
Vertical angles are congruent.

1   3 ,  2   4
Example
<1 and <2 are complementary angles.
<1 and <3 are vertical angles.
If m<3 = 49°, find m<2.
