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.

People also ask, which pair of angles are 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.

**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**.

Similarly one may ask, what is the difference between vertical angles and corresponding angles?

In review, **vertical angles** are **angles** formed by the intersection of two lines while alternate interior **angles**, alternate exterior **angles**, **corresponding angles** and consecutive interior **angles** are formed by the intersection of two lines and a transversal.

**Types of Angles** - Acute, Right, Obtuse, Straight and Reflex Anlges.
