FIRST, SCROLL TO THE BOTTOM OF THIS PAGE AND MAKE SURE YOU ARE SIGNED INTO YOUR JCPS ACCOUNT.
On the graph below, the arrows pointed to the right mean that the two lines are parallel. Measure ONLY the interior angles: (). Then color the congruent angles the same color.

Which line above is the "transversal line"?

Here, the congruent angles are a rotation of each other. For example, if you rotate Angle DFG 180 degrees around Point G, it will end up at Angle AHG. These are called "Alternate Interior Angles" "Alternate" means they are on opposite sides of the transversal line (one on the left and one on the right). "Interior" means they are in between the parallel lines (inside the parallel lines).

Look at your graph again. Angle DFG and Angle BHG are called "Same Side Interior Angles". "Same side" means they are on the same side of the transversal line (both on the right). "Interior" means they are in between the parallel lines (inside the parallel lines).

If Angle DFG and Angle BHG are Same Side Interior Angles, what other pair of angles could be considered Same Side Interior?
