Conditional Statements
Identify the hypothesis and the conclusion:
If two lines are parallel, then the lines are coplanar.
Hypothesis:
Conclusion:

Lesson 2 – 1
Conditional Statements
Write the statement as a conditional:
An acute angle measures less than 90º.
The subject of the sentence is “An acute angle.”
The hypothesis is “An angle is acute.” The first part of the
conditional is “If an angle is acute.”
The verb and object of the sentence are “measures less than
90°.”
The conclusion is “It measures less than 90°.” The second
part of the conditional is “then it measures less than 90°.”
“If an angle is acute, then it measures less than 90°.”

Conditional Statements
Key Concepts
A _________________ is a case in which the hypothesis is
true and the conclusion is false.
To show that a conditional is false, you need to find
only one counterexample.

Biconditionals and Definitions
Key Concepts
If a conditional and its converse are both true, the
statement is said to be ________________.
Biconditional statements are often stated in the form “…if
and only if …”
IFF – short for if and only if
 - symbol for if and only if

Lesson 2 – 2
Biconditionals and Definitions
Key Concepts
The Reversibility Test
The reverse (converse) of a definition must be true.
If the reverse of a statement is false, then the
statement is not a good definition.
A good definition is reversible. That means that you
can write a good definition as a true biconditional.

Proving Angles Congruent
Key Concepts
Theorem: Vertical angles are congruent.
Given: 1 and 2 are vertical angles
Prove: 1  2
Proof: By the Angle Addition Postulate,
m1 + m 3 = 180 and m 2 + m 3 = 180.
By substitution, m 1 + m 3 = m 2 + m 3.
Subtract m 3 from each side. You get
m 1 = m 2, or  1   2.

Theorem: If two angles are supplements of the same
angle, then the two angles are congruent.

Prove: 1  3
Proof: By the definition of supplementary angles,
m1 + m 2 = 180 and m 3 + m 2 = 180.
By substitution, m 1 + m 2 = m 3 + m 2.
Subtract m 2 from each side. You get m 1 = m 3,

Key Concepts
Theorem: If two angles are supplements of congruent
angles, then the two angles are congruent.
Given: 1 and 2 are supplementary
3 and 4 are supplementary
2  4
Prove: 1  3
Proof: By the definition of supplementary angles,
m1 + m 2 = 180 and m 3 + m 4 = 180.
By substitution, m 1 + m 2 = m 3 + m 4.
Since 2  4, by the definition of congruence m 2 = m 4.
By substitution m 1 + m 4 = m 3 + m 4.
Subtract m 4 from each side. You get m 1 = m 3, or
 1   3.
