# Which pair of angles are formed by two intersecting lines?

They are equal vertical opposite angles or 2 pairs of equal angles.

### 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.

### What is a pair of angles formed by two lines intersected by a third line?

More info needed. Are the 2 lines parallel, perpendicular, or? are the angles that you are interested in on opposite sides of the intersecting line or the same side. The intersecting line is called a transversal. If the original lines are parallel, angles between the 2 lines on opposite sides of the transversal are called alternate interior angles, etc.

### What problem would there be in your picture if the line were not parallel?

Parallel means lines that are avoiding each other (in other words, they don't touch.) So the problem would have to be the way the lines are going. If the lines were intersecting (or crossing) then that would be the problem. For example: You have a problem on a paper that asks you this same question: What problem would there be in your picture if the lines were not parallel? Answer: Then your lines would be…

### What is the locus of all points that are equidistant from 2 lines called?

Assume that all distances are measured along the appropriate perpendicular. There is no specific name for the locus since the locus can be two or one straight lines, depending upon the original two lines. If the two lines are intersecting then the locus is a pair of straight lines that bisect the two angles formed by the original lines. If the original two lines are parallel, then the locus is a line parallel to them…

### 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…

### What are angles that are formed when two lines intersect?

When two unique lines intersect, two pairs of equal angles will be formed. All four angles could be 90 degrees (right angles) if the lines are perpendicular. If the lines are oblique, the pairs of angles can vary (almost) infinitely within a given range (1 degree-179 degrees). The intersection of two lines results in two pairs of equal angles such that the sum of angles equals 360. Another way to state this is that two…
