## Same-Side Interior Angles

### Lie on the same side of the transversal and in between ā & b

Same-side interior angles are a type of angle formed when two parallel lines are intersected by a transversal. Specifically, these angles are located on the same side of the transversal, and on the interior of the parallel lines. For example, if we have two parallel lines, AB and CD, intersected by a transversal line EF, the angles that are inside the parallel lines and on the same side of the transversal line are called same-side interior angles.

In general, same-side interior angles are congruent. That is, they have the same measure. This is a consequence of the fact that they are located in corresponding positions relative to the two parallel lines. More specifically, if we label the angles formed by the intersection of the parallel lines and the transversal as shown below (e.g., angle 1, angle 2, angle 3, etc.), we have:

– Angle 1 and angle 5 are same-side interior angles, and they are congruent.

– Angle 2 and angle 6 are same-side interior angles, and they are congruent.

– Angle 3 and angle 7 are same-side interior angles, and they are congruent.

– Angle 4 and angle 8 are same-side interior angles, and they are congruent.

This relationship is sometimes referred to as the corresponding angles property of parallel lines. It is a key idea in geometry, and is used to prove many results related to parallel lines and transversals.
