### What are the conditions that guarantee parallelism?

Parallel lines are lines that are coplanar (lying on the same
plane) and do not intersect
when cut by a transversal,
corresponding angles formed by line n are equal in
measure,
alternate interior angles are equal in measures,
the measures of alternate exterior angles are equal,
consecutive interior angles are supplementary,
consecutive exterior angles are supplementary.

### Uses of parallel lines cut by a transversal?

There's lots of useful things you can discover when parallel
lines are cut by a transversal, most of them having to do with
angle relationships. Corresponding angles are congruent, alternate
interior angles are congruent, same side or consecutive interior
angles are supplementary, alternate exterior angles are congruent,
and vertical angles are congruent.
