Sample text

A square is a rectangle” is a true statement. But it is not sufficient as a definition. Every definition should be reversible, and “A rectangle is a square” is not a true statement since there are plenty of rectangles that are not squares. On the other hand, “A right angle is an angle whose measure is 90” is an acceptable definition of right angle. If we reverse the statement, “An angle whose measure is 90 is a right angle” is an equally correct statement. “Right angle” and “90 degree angle” are two names for the same thing.

Not every pair of supplementary angles form a linear pair; the angles must also be adjacent. Example 5 If , find so that and are a linear pair. Solution The angles of a linear pair are supplementary, that is, their measures total 180. Thus, . Since , we write or When a ray shares its vertex with an angle and lies in the interior of the angle so that two angles with equal measure are formed, the ray bisects the angle. Definition 1-29 If point P lies in the interior of , such that , then is the bisector of .
