    not sure i understand the question. does m2 refer to the measure of an angle?

    if its given that m2 = m3 then yes you can say m3 = m2

    I think it would be the following: Given AB = VT and XB = XT If AX = AB - XB, and VX = VT - XT Then AX = VT - XT = VX

    yes, I understand that proof, but how about the first one- If m< 2 m< 3 then m< 3 m< 2

    i dont know it seems pretty straightforward, what is there to prove. m3 = m2 thus m2=m3. maybe check out a proof of vertical angles
