corresponding angles are angle that if u took one angle it would correspond (witch means equal) with the other angle

The angles that occupy the same relative position at each intersection where a straight line crosses two others. If the two lines are parallel, the corresponding angles are equal!

The term "corresponding angles" can appear in two contexts.

The more common context is one in which a pair of parallel line is crossed by another, called the transversal. The angles in matching corners are called corresponding angles. They are also known, informally, as F angles.

The second context is that of similar polygons. These are polygons in which all sides of one shape are a constant number of times those of the other and each angle of one is equal to the corresponding angle (that is, angle in the same position), of the other.

When a transversal line cuts through parallel lines equal corresponding and equal alternate angles are formed
