I just don't understand the geometry behind this! How is theta 1 in red equal to theta 1 in black? And same with theta 2? I need to figure out the angles to solve the rest of my problem, but I am already stuck in figuring out how these angles are the same. Please help asap.

1. Looks like they are doing some kind of rotation.

Here is an easier way:

from red B1 draw a perpendicular to the x-axis to get a right-angled triangle.
So the angle at red B1 is black Ø2

since in the original Ø1+Ø2=90
and in the new triangle the angle at P must be Ø1

In most geometry courses, we learn that there's no such thing as "SSA Congruence" . That is, if we have triangles ABC and DEF such that AB = DE, BC = EF, and angle A = angle D, then we cannot deduce that ABC and DEF are congruent.
