# Prove that vertically opposite angles are equal .

• -8

### Theorem: All vertically opposite angles have equal measure.

(To get started, we first use the definition of vertically opposite angles to make sense of the statement. We sketch a labeled figure to introduce notation. We then restate what must be shown using the explicit notation.)

### Proof:

Let one pair of vertically opposite angles in the following figure have measures s and t and the other have measures u and v. We must show s=t and u=v.

s+u=straight angle=t+u. Therefore s=t.

Likewise, s+u=straight angle=s+v. Therefore u=v.

Proove alternate interior angles equal

• -5 The straight lines AB and CD intersect in O.
∴ ∠AOC + ∠AOD = 180° … (1) (Linear pair)
∠AOD + ∠BOD = 180° … (2) (Linear pair)
From (1) and (2), we get
∠AOC + ∠AOD = ∠AOD + ∠BOD
∠AOC = ∠BOD
Similarly, ∠BOC = ∠AOD
Thus, if two straight intersect each other, then the pair of vertically opposite angles are equal.

Sorry param! by mistake I disliked! The solution for that yours is from the golden guide right? :P Anyways thank you!!

there is no proof of alternate angle as there is a alternate angle axiom which states that if two parallel lines are intersected by a transversal then the alternate angles are always equal
