Useful Terms

Here are some terms that you should be sure to keep in mind while reviewing this packet:

congruent = a term used to describe two angles that are exactly the same degree measure

supplementary angles = two angles that when added together, equal 180 degrees

linear pair = two angles that form a straight (180 degree) line

vertical angle = two angles that, when two lines intersect, are directly opposite each other
