Possible answer: Reverse the hypothesis and conclusion; for a statement “ifp, then q”, the converse is “if q, then p.” 2. What kind of angles are ∠2 and ∠6 in Step C? What does the converse you wrote in Step C mean? Possible answer: alternate interior angles; if the two alternate interior angles ∠2 and ∠3 are congruent, then the lines ℓ and m are parallel. Explain 1 Proving that Two Lines are Parallel The converses from the Explore can be stated formally as a postulate and two theorems. (You will prove the converses of the theorems in the exercises.) Converse of the Same-Side Interior Angles Postulate If two lines are cut by a transversal so that a pair of same-side interior angles are supplementary, then the lines are parallel. Converse of the Alternate Interior Angles Theorem If two lines are cut by a transversal so that any pair of alternate interior angles are congruent, then the lines are parallel. Converse of the Corresponding Angles Theorem If two lines are cut by a transversal so that any pair of corresponding angles are congruent, then the lines are parallel. You can use these converses to decide whether two lines are parallel. to make an ornamental design.

Discussion Explain how you know that the construction in Part A or Part B produces a line passing through the given point that is parallel to the given line. In each case, the construction creates two congruent corresponding angles. In Part A, for example, lines ℓ and m are cut by a transversal and a pair of corresponding angles are congruent, so the lines are parallel (Converse of the Corresponding Angles Theorem). Your Turn 7. ℓ Construct a line m through P parallel to line ℓ. m P Using Angle Pair Relationships to Verify Lines are Parallel Explain 3 When two lines are cut by a transversal, you can use relationships of pairs of angles to decide if the lines are parallel.
