# What is the measure of corresponding angles?

**Corresponding angles**are created where a transversal crosses other (usually parallel) lines. The

**corresponding angles**are the ones at the same location at each intersection. Try this Drag an orange dot at A or B. Notice that the two

**corresponding angles**shown are equal in

**measure**if the lines PQ and RS are parallel.

Then, are corresponding angles equal to 180?

**Corresponding angles** are **equal**. d and f are interior **angles**. These add up to **180** degrees (e and c are also interior). Any two **angles** that add up to **180** degrees are known as supplementary **angles**.

Also Know, are corresponding angles always equal? When two lines are crossed by another line (which is called the Transversal), the **angles** in matching corners are called **corresponding angles**. Example: a and e **are corresponding angles**. When the two lines are parallel **Corresponding Angles** are **equal**.

Simply so, what is a pair of corresponding angles?

When a line (called a transversal) intersects a **pair** of parallel lines, **corresponding angles** are formed. **Corresponding angles** are **angles** that are in the same relative position at an intersection of a transversal and at least two lines. If the two lines are parallel then the **corresponding angles** are congruent.

How do you find the measure of an unknown angle?

To determine to **measure** of the **unknown angle**, be sure to use the total sum of 180°. If two **angles** are given, add them together and then subtract from 180°. If two **angles** are the same and **unknown**, subtract the known **angle** from 180° and then divide by 2.
