Which statement should Jamal use to prove that lines a and b are parallel?
∠3 = 120°
∠7 = 120°
∠2 = 60°
∠4 = 60°
The second answer is correct.
Angles on a straight line add up to 180 so Angle 2 = 60
Alternate angles also equal 180 so Angle 4 = 60 and Angle 3 = 120
Now you need to find a corresponding angle on the other line and Angle 7 is the only option you're given so if that equals 120, the rule of corresponding angles means that the lines are parallel.
Hope this helps! :)
Thank you so much. That was the answer I got but I did not completely understand why! Thanks. Not to be rude but is there any way you could check out the question before this and help me out? It's a closed question.
