Actually, it's the Linear Pair Postulate, which is...

If two angles form a linear pair, then they are supplementary; that is, the sum of their measures is 180 degrees.

### What is the linear pair postulate?

1. Where the angles in a linear pair are supplementry, and if
parallel lines are cut by a transversal, then the interior angles
are congruent, and if two lines are cut by a transversal so that a
pair of alternate interior angles are congruent, then the two lines
are parallel. That's what makes up a linear pair postulate
anyway.
2. If two adjacent angle's unshared sides form a straight angle,
then they are a linear pair.
3.If two angles form a linear pair,then they are
supplementary.

###### Asked in Math and Arithmetic, Geometry

### What is a linear pair?

A linear pair of angles is formed when two lines
intersect. Two angles are said to be linear if they are
adjacent angles formed by two intersecting lines. The measure of a
straight angle is 180 degrees, so a linear pair of angles must add
up to 180 degrees.
linear pair means that the angles which form on the same line and
add up to 180.
