How about now?

- anonymous

What does that do? isn't that the same picture as the one in the question?

- anonymous

yes. I thought if I drew it out, it might look clearer.

- anonymous

I just don't understand anything about the question D:

- anonymous

Hmm... Okay then... I'll try my best to help you understand.

- anonymous

have you heard of corresponding angles?

- anonymous

yes it was in my lesson but I forget what they really are.

- anonymous

Let's take away the line so it's easier for you to see.

Corresponding angles: 'the angles that occupy the same relative position at each intersection where a straight line crosses two others. If the two lines are parallel, the corresponding angles are equal.'

- anonymous

so it's not A?

- anonymous

In this case, the corresponding angle of q would be...

- anonymous

no,

- anonymous

So not A.

- anonymous

Do you understand the drawing?

A little bit. I don't even understand what the answer choices mean.

A states that

- anonymous

but aren't angles p and q different?

- anonymous

so how do they both equal 3?

- anonymous

would*

- anonymous

B states that

- anonymous

You are correct. angles p and q do not equal to each other so A cannot be the answer.

- anonymous

Remember, 180°= line.

- anonymous

what line?

- anonymous

C states that

- anonymous

a line is...

- anonymous

oh

- anonymous

D and B are almost the same, except B is a line
|dw:1346355007844:dw|
and D states that

- anonymous

So now that I've explained to you all your choices, which one do you think your answer is?

- anonymous

b?...

- anonymous

Yes.
