Vertical Angles and Linear Pair
September 8, 2011
• Objective: You will be able to identify and
solve problems with vertical angles and linear
pairs.
• Bell Ringer: Solve for x
2x + 53
x+7
Angle Pairs
• Vertical Angles: Two
angles whose sides are
opposite rays. The
angles are congruent.
(They form an X)
• Linear Pair: Two angles
that share a common
ray and form a line.
(The angles are
supplementary)
Example
• <KPL and <JPL form a linear pair. If m<KPL = 2x + 24 and
m<JPL = 4x + 36, what are the measures of the two
angles?
2x + 24 + 4x + 36 = 180
Linear Pairs are Supplementary
Combine Like Terms
6x + 60 = 180
6x = 120
Subtract 60
x = 20
Divide by 6
m<KPL = 2(20) + 24 = 64
Substitute 20 for x
m<JPL = 4(20) + 36 = 116
Example
• Solve for x and then find the measure of the
two angles.
6x + 18 = 8x – 2
6x + 20 = 8x
20 = 2x
10 = x
6(10) + 18 = 78
Vertical Angles are Congruent
Subtract 6x from both sides
Divide by 2
Substitute 10 for x
Bisector
• An angle bisector is a ray that divides two
angles into two congruent angles.
• Example: Ray CF bisects <ACE, find the value
of x and the measure of <ACE.
5x = 2x + 24
3x = 24
x=8
5(8) + 2(8) + 24 = 80
Definition of a bisector
Subtract 2x from both sides
Divide both sides by 3
Substitute 8 for x
Example 1
• Find the value of x.
Example 2
• Find the value of x.
Example 3
• Find the value of x.
Example 4
• Solve for x
