More Lessons for Grade 8
Examples, solutions, videos, worksheets, stories, and songs to help Grade 8 students learn about transversal and parallel lines problems.
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.
The following diagrams show examples of transversals, corresponding angles, and alternate interior angles. Scroll down the page for more examples and solutions on transversals and congruent angles.
