  1. I've drawn a picture given line m is parallel to line n, and line g is parallel to line h. However, I don't know how your angles are numbered, so I can't identify angles 4 and 16. Can you provide some clarification of the angles?

  3. I'm still having trouble understanding this notation. Could you copy and paste the following paragraphs, filling in all the angle numbers?

    Where lines m and g intersect, there are four angles. Above line g on the left of line m, the angle is _. Above line g on the right of line m, the angle is _. Below line g on the left of line m, the angle is _. Below line g on the right of line m, the angle is _.

    Where lines n and g intersect, there are four angles. Above line g on the left of line n, the angle is _. Above line g on the right of line n, the angle is _. Below line g on the left of line n, the angle is _. Below line g on the right of line n, the angle is _.

    Where lines n and h intersect, there are four angles. Above line h on the left of line n, the angle is _. Above line h on the right of line n, the angle is _. Below line h on the left of line n, the angle is _. Below line h on the right of line n, the angle is _.

    Where lines m and h intersect, there are four angles. Above line h on the left of line m, the angle is _. Above line h on the right of line m, the angle is _. Below line h on the left of line m, the angle is _. Below line h on the right of line m, the angle is _.

  5. Okay, start by stating that m//n and g//h. You're just using your different properties for congruency.

    1. m // n and g // h --> given
    2. Angle 4 congruent to Angle 8 --> alternate exterior angles
    3. Angle 8 congruent to Angle 10 --> alternate interior angles
    4. Angle 10 congruent to Angle 16 --> corresponding angles
    5. Therefore, Angle 4 congruent to Angle 16 --> transitive property
