# Why are corresponding angles important?

**corresponding angles**are congruent, the lines are parallel. These theorems can be used to solve problems in geometry and to find missing information. The diagram shows which pairs of

**angles**are equal and

**corresponding**. Notice that the lines are parallel.

Regarding this, what are corresponding angles simple definition?

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.

Furthermore, what are corresponding and alternate angles? **Corresponding angles** are at the same location on points of intersection. Next we have **alternate** interior **angles**. Located between the two intersected lines, these **angles** are on opposite sides of the transversal. These **angles** are located on the same side of the transversal and inside of the two lines.

Likewise, people ask, what are the properties of corresponding angles?

**Corresponding angles** are **angles** that are in the same relative position at an intersection of a transversal and at least two lines. If the lines are parallel then the **corresponding angles** are congruent.

What is the sum of corresponding angles?

**Corresponding angles** can be supplementary if the transversal intersects two parallel lines perpendicularly (i.e. at 90 degrees). In such case, each of the **corresponding angle** will be 90 degrees and their **sum** will add up to 180 degrees (i.e. supplementary).
