    Step 1: m∠m + m∠n + m∠o = 180 degrees (sum of angles of a triangle) Step 2: m∠p − m∠o = 90 degrees (alternate interior angles) Step 3: Therefore, m∠m + m∠n + m∠o = m∠o + m∠p Step 4: So, m∠m + m∠n = m∠p In which step did the student first make a mistake and how can it be corrected? A. Step 1; it should be m∠m + m∠n + m∠o = 90 degrees (corresponding angles) B. Step 1; it should be m∠m + m∠n + m∠o = 90 degrees (adjacent angles) C. Step 2; it should be m∠o + m∠p = 180 degrees (alternate exterior angles) D. Step 2; it should be m∠o + m∠p = 180 degrees (supplementary angles)
