## What are corresponding angles?

Corresponding angles are

**formed when a transversal passes through two lines**. The angles that are formed in the same position, in terms of the transversal, are corresponding angles.## What is corresponding angle short answer?

Definition: Corresponding angles are

**the angles which are formed in matching corners or corresponding corners with the transversal when two parallel lines are intersected by any other line**(i.e. the transversal). For example, in the below-given figure, angle p and angle w are the corresponding angles.## How do you find corresponding angles?

## What is the corresponding angle of 4?

120°

∠3 and ∠4 form a straight angle, so∠4=

**120°**. ∠8 ≅ ∠120° since ∠4 and ∠8 are corresponding angles, and m and n are parallel.## Do corresponding angles add up to 180?

Do Corresponding Angles Add Up to 180?

**Yes**, corresponding angles can add up to 180. In some cases when both angles are 90 degrees each, the sum will be 180 degrees. These angles are known as supplementary corresponding angles.## What is corresponding angles for kids?

Corresponding angles – When two lines (usually parallel) are crossed by another (called the transversal) the angles

**in the same corners of each line**are called corresponding angles.## How do you find corresponding angles and sides?
