    Sorry about that, I got kicked out :/ @Mertsj I need help with any one of the questions that don't have an answer highlighted in yellow. Any of the ones that do I need them to be checked. :)

    Yes, a isosceles triangle is a triangle that has two equal sides and two equal angels.

    So # 3. There is a theorem that says that the exterior angle of a triangle is equal to the sum of the two remote interior angles. Do you know what that means? Do you know what an exterior angle of a triangle is?

    Your yellow answers (btw use blue next time, I could not read yellow) are correct for question 3, you should think "If I know 2 angles of the triangle, I can figure out the 3rd" use the idea that a straight line is 180ª to find that 2nd angle. Can you do that ?

    Okay yes, that answer is correct. So angle 4 is 64 degrees. Ohh, all my yellow answers are correct? Sorry I didn't understand that D: I'll do Blue next time, thanks. So if Angle 4 is 64 degrees then Angle 2 is 64 degrees. So if Angle 2 is 64 degrees and Angle 3 is 54, then Angle 1 is 62 degrees?

    angle 5 and angle 8 are vertical angles. The fancy names refer to angles on the 2 different parallel lines (if that makes sense)

    yes. alternate means "other side of the transversal" and exterior means outside the 2 parallel lines.

    for question 22 and 23, the idea is the angles on the "right side parallel line" are equal to their corresponding angles on the left side parallel line. so 6 matches (corresponds) with 2

    using corresponding angles and knowing vertical angles are equal, you can figure out everything (except the goofy names they give the different angle pairs)
