Vertical Angles

Hi Welcome to MooMooMath. Today we are going to talk about vertical angles. Vertical angles are angles that are across the street from each other, so you always look at vertical angles in relationship to each other and in relation to each other. Notice I have a line here and I have a line here and one here and I have one,two,three,four angles, so these are the angles I'm looking and the across the street neighbors are these two and these two. If you will notice these two are smaller and they are actually congruent to each other which means they are equal measure. So I'm going to mark these angles in blue with one little arc which shows they are congruent to each other. Then I'm going to mark these other angles congruent in green with two arcs and they are across from each other. These are what vertical angles are. So these two blue angles are congruent and these two green angles are congruent. Now I'm going to throw some numbers in there. What if I make this angle one hundred and twenty degrees how can I figure the rest. If this angle is one hundred and twenty degrees. We know this one has to be one hundred and twenty also because they are vertical angles. Now notice this is a straight line, and we know that lines add up to one hundred and eighty degrees. So if we have one twenty here we have sixty for the other side, so this vertical angle is also sixty degrees so that's how vertical angles work. They are very simple once you get the hang of it. So let's look at the rules of vertical angles. The rules are that angles across the street from each other are congruent and that's what a vertical angle is. Then angles adjacent from each other or next to each other are supplementary to each other or they add up to one eighty. Let's look at our diagram. These two sixty degree angles are vertical angles, these two one twenty degree angles are vertical angles but these two next to each other are adjacent to each other and they add up to one eighty. Hope this was helpful
