    Do you get the m is parallel to n part?

    Yeah I understand that they are parallel, but I don't know what theorem or postulate is used to determine that they are.

    How do they become parallel? which property do you use?

    What if I tell you that they are not parallel. Would you believe it?

    Hmm, I would believe it because there aren't any symbols proving that they are. Usually there would be arrows identifying the parallel lines.

    You can use Alternate Interior Angles Theorem to check whether the lines are parallel.

    Which means that 37+57 should equal to 90 in this case. Which is not. So the lines are not parallel
