1 38 Properties of Geometric Shapes In this section we study the properties of geometric shapes that belong to the same plane such as lines and angles. Lines Two lines in a plane that do not have a point in common are called parallel. See Figure 38.1 (a). If the two lines are l and m then we write l m. When two or more lines have exactly one point in common then we say that they are concurrent. See Figure 38.1(b). The midpoint of a line segment is a point that is equidistant from A and B, that is a point that has the same distance from A and B. See Figure 38.1(c). A ray is a subset of a line that contains the endpoint and all points on the line on one side of the point. See Figure 38.1(d). Figure 38.1 Next, we list some of the important properties of lines. Properties (1) Through any distinct two points there is exactly one line going through them. (2) If two points are in a plane then the line containing them lies in that plane. (3) There is exactly one plane containing any three noncollinear distinct points. (4) A line and a point not on the line determine a plane. (5) Two parallel lines determine a plane. (6) Two concurrent lines determine a plane. Angles: Measurements and Types We have seen that an angle is the opening between two line segments with 1

2 one common endpoint. An angle can be also defined as the opening between two rays with the same endpoint called the vertex. We call the rays the sides of the angle. If A is the vertex, B is a point on one side and C is a point on the other side then we write BAC. See Figure Note that the middle letter in the notation of an angle is always the vertex. Sometimes only the vertex A is given. In this case we use the notation A. Also, angles can be labeled using numbers. In this case we use the notation 1 to denote the angle labeled 1. An angle is measured according to the amount of opening between its sides. A unit of angle measure is the degree. A complete rotation about a point has a measure of 360 degrees, written Thus, one degree is of 360 a complete rotation. We will write m( BAC) for the measure of the angle at vertex A. Angles are measured using a protractor. To measure an angle BAC, place the center of the protractor at the vertex A while lining up the side AB with the base of the protractor. The other side of the angle will pass through a number on the protractor representing m( BAC) in degrees. See Figure Figure 38.2 Next, we categorize angles according to their measures. If m( BAC) = 90 then we will say that the angle is a right angle. See Figure 38.3(a). Two lines that intersect at a right angle are called perpendicular. If 2

3 m( BAC) = 180 we say that the angle is straight. See Figure 38.3(b). If 0 < m( BAC) < 90 then the angle is called acute. See Figure 38.3(c). If 90 < m( BAC) < 180 then the angle is called obtuse. See Figure 38.3(d). If m( BAC) > 180 then the angle is called reflex. See Figure 38.3(e). Figure 38.3 Now, recall that a triangle has three interior angles. If one of the angles is a right angle then we call the triangle a right triangle. If one of the angle is obtuse then we call the triangle an obtuse triangle. If all three angles are acute angles then the triangle is called an acute triangle. Pairs of Angles and the Vertical Angles Theorem Two angles that have a common side and nonoverlapping interiors are called adjacent angles. See Figure 38.4(a). If the sum of two adjacent angles is 90 then the two angles are called complementary. See Figure 38.4(b). Two adjacent angles whose sum is 180 are called supplementary angles. See Figure 38.4(c). A pair of nonadjacent angles formed by two intersecting lines are called vertical angles. For example, m( 1) and m( 2) are vertical angles as well as m( 3) and m( 4). See Figure 38.4(d) Figure 38.4 Vertical angles are congruent as shown in the following theorem. Theorem 38.1 (Vertical Angles Theorem) Vertical angles have the same measure. 3

4 Proof. The angles 1 and 3 are supplementary so that m( 1) + m( 3) = 180. Similarly, the angles 2 and 3 are supplementary so that m( 2)+m( 3) = 180. Thus, m( 1)+m( 3) = m( 2)+m( 3). Subtracting m( 3) from both sides of the equation gives m( 1) = m( 2). A similar argument shows that m( 3) = m( 4) Angles Associated with Parallel Lines If two lines k and l are parallel then a line m as shown in Figure 38.5 is called a transversal line. In this case, there are 8 angles determined by these three lines numbered 1 through 8. Figure 38.5 Angles 1 and 6 as well as angles 4 and 5 are called alternate interior angles. The following theorem shows that any pair of alternate interior angles are congruent. Theorem 38.2 Any pair of alternate interior angles have the same measure. Proof. We will show that m( 4) = m( 5). The other equality is similar. According to Figure 38.6 we have the following equalities: m( c) + m( 5) = 90 and m( 4)+m( c) = 90. Thus, m( c)+m( 5) = m( 4)+m( c). Subtracting m( c) from both sides we obtain m( 4) = m( 5) Figure

5 Now, going back to Figure 38.5, the angles 1 and 8; 2 and 5; 3 and 6; 4 and 7 are called corresponding angles. Every pair of corresponding angles are congruent as shown in the next theorem. Theorem 38.3 Corresponding angles have the same measure. Proof. We will just show that m( 2) = m( 5). By the vertical angles theorem we have m( 2) = m( 4). By the alternate interior angles theorem we have m( 4) = m( 5). From these two equalities we conclude that m( 2) = m( 5) Sum of the Measures of the Interior Angles of a Triangle As an application to the results of the previous paragraph, we show that the sum of the measures of the interior angles of a triangle is 180. To see this, let s consider a triangle with vertices A, B, and C and interior angles 1, 2, and 3 as shown in Figure 38.7(a). At A draw a line parallel to the line segment BC. Then using the corresponding angles theorem we can draw Figure 38.7(b) which shows that as required. m( 1) + m( 2) + m( 3) = 180 Practice Problems Figure 38.7 Problem 38.1 Using Figure 38.5 show that m( 1) + m( 5) =

Determine m( 1) and m( 2). 6

7 Problem 38.6 Angles 3 and 8; 2 and 7 in Figure 38.5 are called alternate exterior angles. Show that m( 3) = m( 8). Problem 38.7 Following are the measures of A, B, C. Can a triangle ABC be made that has the given angles? Explain. (a) m( A) = 36, m( B) = 78, m( C) = 66. (b) m( A) = 124, m( B) = 56, m( C) = 20. (c) m( A) = 90, m( B) = 74, m( C) = 18.

### A convex polygon is a polygon such that no line containing a side of the polygon will contain a point in the interior of the polygon.

hapter 7 Polygons A polygon can be described by two conditions: 1. No two segments with a common endpoint are collinear. 2. Each segment intersects exactly two other segments, but only on the endpoints.
