Proving Lines Parallel - Postulates & Theorems l If two lines are cut by a transversal and corresponding angles are congruent, then the lines are parallel. Lesson 2 -5: Proving Lines Parallel 2

Proving Lines Parallel - Postulates &Theorems l If two lines are cut by a transversal and alternate interior angles are congruent, then the lines are parallel. Lesson 2 -5: Proving Lines Parallel 3

Proving Lines Parallel - Postulates &Theorems l If two lines are cut by a transversal and consecutive interior angles are supplementary, then the lines are parallel. Lesson 2 -5: Proving Lines Parallel 4

Proving Lines Parallel - Postulates &Theorems l If two lines are cut by a transversal and consecutive exterior angles are supplementary, then the lines are parallel. Lesson 2 -5: Proving Lines Parallel 5
