If two lines are cut by a transversal to form pairs of congruent corresponding angles, congruent alternate interior angles, or congruent alternate exterior angles, then the lines are parallel.

What is the differences between postulate theorems and converse?

postulate theorems tell that the lines are parallel, but the converse if asking you to find if the lines are parallel.

What does parallel lines intercepted arc conjecture mean?

Parallel lines intercept congruent arcs on a circle. More explanation: Parallel lines never interSECT but they can interCEPT Congruent arcs means that the two arcs would have the same measure of the arcs.

Is it true that if two lines are crossed by a transversal the two lines are parallel?

A transversal is simply any line that passes through two or more coplanar lines each at different points. So picture, if you will, two lines that are clearly not parallel. I can easily construct a transversal that passes through them. HOWEVER, if two parallel lines are intersected by a transversal, then the corresponding angles are congruent. This is called the transversal postulate. If the corresponding angles are congruent, than the lines are parallel. This is the converse of the first postulate. So, the answer to your question is NO, unless the corresponding angles are congruent.


Can parallel lines be intersecting lines?
