Theorems
3.1 – Alternate Interior Angles – If two parallel lines are cut
by a transversal then each pair of alternate interior angles
is congruent.
3.2 – Consecutive Interior Angles – If two parallel lines are
cut by a transversal, then each pair of consecutive interior
angles is supplementary.
3.3 – Alternate Exterior Angles – If two parallel lines are cut
by a transversal, then each pair of alternate exterior
angles is congruent.
3.4 – Perpendicular Transversal Theroem – In a plane, if a
line is perpendicular to one of two parallel lines, then it is
perpendicular to the other.

increased by an average rate of \$314.3 million per year. In
2003, the total sales were \$4553 million. If sales of fitness
equipment increase at the same rate, what will the total
sales be in 2010?
Example 2

the Internet. In 2003, 20 million songs were legally
downloaded. If this increases at the same rate, how many
songs will be legally downloaded in 2008?
Postulates
3.2 Parallel Lines - Two nonvertical lines have the same
slope if and only if they are parallel.

Proving Lines Parallel
Lesson 3.5
Postulates
3.4 - If two lines are cut by a transversal so that
corresponding angles are congruent, then the lines are
parallel.
3.5 – Parallel Postulate – If given a line and a point not on
the line, then there exists exactly one line through the
point that is parallel to the given line.
Theorems
3.5 – If two lines are cut by a transversal so that a pair of
alternate exterior angles is congruent, then the two lines
are parallel.
3.6 – If two lines are cut by a transversal so that a pair of
consecutive interior angles is supplementary, then the
lines are parallel.
3.7 – If two lines are cut by a transversal so that a pair of
alternate interior angles is congruent, then the lines are
parallel.
3.8 – If two lines are perpendicular to the same line, then
they are parallel.
