Proving Lines Parallel The Converse of the Corresponding Angles Postulate is used to construct parallel lines. The Parallel Postulate guarantees that for any line ℓ, you can always construct a parallel line through a point that is not on ℓ. Holt Mc. Dougal Geometry

Proving Lines Parallel Example 4: Carpentry Application A carpenter is creating a woodwork pattern and wants two long pieces to be parallel. m 1= (8 x + 20)° and m 2 = (2 x + 10)°. If x = 15, show that pieces A and B are parallel. Holt Mc. Dougal Geometry

Proving Lines Parallel Example 4 Continued A line through the center of the horizontal piece forms a transversal to pieces A and B. 1 and 2 are same-side interior angles. If 1 and 2 are supplementary, then pieces A and B are parallel. Substitute 15 for x in each expression. Holt Mc. Dougal Geometry

Proving Lines Parallel Example 4 Continued m 1 = 8 x + 20 = 8(15) + 20 = 140 Substitute 15 for x. m 2 = 2 x + 10 = 2(15) + 10 = 40 m 1+m 2 = 140 + 40 = 180 Substitute 15 for x. 1 and 2 are supplementary. The same-side interior angles are supplementary, so pieces A and B are parallel by the Converse of the Same-Side Interior Angles Theorem. Holt Mc. Dougal Geometry

Proving Lines Parallel Example 1: Distance From a Point to a Line A. Name the shortest segment from point A to BC. The shortest distance from a point to a line is the length of the perpendicular segment, so AP is the shortest segment from A to BC. B. Write and solve an inequality for x. AC > AP AP is the shortest segment. x – 8 > 12 +8 +8 x > 20 Substitute x – 8 for AC and 12 for AP. Add 8 to both sides of the inequality. Holt Mc. Dougal Geometry

Proving Lines Parallel Example 3: Carpentry Application A carpenter’s square forms a right angle. A carpenter places the square so that one side is parallel to an edge of a board, and then draws a line along the other side of the square. Then he slides the square to the right and draws a second line. Why must the two lines be parallel? Both lines are perpendicular to the edge of the board. If two coplanar lines are perpendicular to the same line, then the two lines are parallel to each other, so the lines must be parallel to each other. Holt Mc. Dougal Geometry
