What are parallel lines?
Parallel lines are two lines on a plane that do not intersect.
What is a Transversal?
A transversal is any line that intersects two other lines in the same plane. Eight angles are formed when a transversal intersect 2 lines. When the two lines are parallel the eight angles will have some known relationships.
