Identify the contrapositive of the following statement, then decide if the contrapositive is true or false.
"if angle 1 congruent to angle 2, then symbol representing angle 1andSymbol representing angle 2are vertical angles.

Whether or not your statement is true depends upon whether angle 1 is the supplement of angle 2. Are they formed by the intersection with a long striaght line? Is there supposed to be a figure provided with this question?

The contrapositive statement would be "If angles 1 and 2 are both vertical, then they are congruent to one another." This would be true if the first statement were true, but both statements depend upon the situation you are talking about (i.e., the locations of the angles).
