## tahtah99 3 years ago The figure below shows a transversal t which intersects the parallel lines PQ and RS. Write a paragraph to prove that the measure of angle 3 is equal to the measure of angle 5.

figure below? :P

2. tahtah99

im getting there haha

3. telltoamit

wokie

4. tahtah99

there ya go : )

uhh...u want a proof of this?

8. telltoamit

and both figures are different..lol..

prove that the measure of angle 3 is equal to the measure of angle 5. Mine is the one from the assignment im doing

10. Mertsj

Since line PQ is given to be parallel to line RS and since 3 and 5 are alternate interior angles, we know tha angle 3 is congruent to angle 5 because if parallel lines are cut by a transversal, then the alternate interior angles are congruent.

lol u know the answer right. I was thinking how to prove that 2+2 =4 :P

12. tahtah99

thank you : )

Hahaa. You're welcome
