Calculate the size of angle X given that the triangle is equilateral.

Video Solution

Step-by-Step Solution

Remember that the sum of angles in a triangle is equal to 180.

In an equilateral triangle, all sides and all angles are equal to each other.

Therefore, we will calculate as follows:

$x+x+x=180$

$3x=180$

We divide both sides by 3:

$x=60$

Answer

60

Exercise #7

Which type of angles are shown in the figure below?

Step-by-Step Solution

Alternate angles are a pair of angles that can be found on the opposite side of a line that cuts two parallel lines.

Furthermore, these angles are located on the opposite level of the corresponding line that they belong to.

Answer

Alternate

Exercise #8

What angles are described in the drawing?

Step-by-Step Solution

Let's remember that vertical angles are angles that are formed when two lines intersect, and they are created at the point of intersection, opposite each other.

Answer

Vertices

Exercise #9

$a$ is parallel to

$b$

Determine which of the statements is correct.

Video Solution

Step-by-Step Solution

Let's review the definition of adjacent angles:

Adjacent angles are angles formed where there are two straight lines that intersect. These angles are formed at the point where the intersection occurs, one next to the other, and hence their name.

Now let's review the definition of collateral angles:

Two angles formed when two or more parallel lines are intersected by a third line. The collateral angles are on the same side of the intersecting line and even are at different heights in relation to the parallel line to which they are adjacent.

Therefore, answer C is correct for this definition.
