### Geometry 2.6 / 2.7

```SWLT: Write proofs using geometric theorems and use
properties of special pairs of angles.
 In a proof, you make one
statement at a time, until

 Congruent Supplements Theorem
 If two angles are complementary to

1 & 2 are supplements,
3 & 2 are supplements.
m1 + m2 = 180°
m3 + m2 = 180°
m1 + m2 = m3 + m2
m1 = m3
m1 ≅ m3
