You are watching: If a transversal intersects two parallel lines then

Here, Exterior angles room ∠1, ∠2, ∠7 and ∠8Interior angles room ∠3, ∠4, ∠5 and also ∠6Corresponding angles space ∠(i)∠1 and ∠5(ii)∠2 and ∠6(iii)∠4 and ∠8(iv)∠3 and ∠7

**Axiom 4** If a transversal intersects 2 lines such the a pair of corresponding angles is equal, climate the two lines are parallel to each other.
