# Do Alternate Exterior Angles Add Up To 180?

*Answer:*

When the two lines intersected by the transversal are parallel, corresponding angles are congruent, alternate interior angles are congruent, alternate exterior angles are **congruent**, and consecutive interior angles become supplementary, which means they have a sum of 180 degrees.

## Frequently Asked Questions

### Do alternate angles add up to 180?

Alternate angles form a '**Z' shape** and are sometimes called 'Z angles'. ... d and f are interior angles. These add up to 180 degrees (e and c are also interior). Any two angles that add up to 180 degrees are known as supplementary angles.

### Do alternate interior angles add up to 180 or 90?

We know that adjacent angles on a straight line always add up to 180° but it's also true that interior angles add up to 180°. What about alternate interior angles? **Unless the alternate interior vertical angles are 90° then they will not add up to 180°**.

### What is the F rule in angles?

**Basically the angles in the same position on each parallel line will be equal to the angle in that position on the other parallel line**. This rule is sometimes remembered as “F angles” because the angles make an F shape.

### What are the 7 types of angles?

The rays making an angle are called the arms of an angle and the common end point is called the vertex of an angle. There are 7 types of angles. These are **zero angle, acute angle, right angle, obtuse angle, straight angle, reflex angle, and complete angle.**

### When do you use an alternate exterior angle?

If it crosses the two lines at a right angle it is a perpendicular transversal. A transversal is a line that intersects two other lines. These lines are often parallel, but this is not required. Alternate exterior angles are congruent if the lines intercepted by the transversal are parallel.

### When is an alternate exterior angle congruent with an interior angle?

Alternate exterior angles are congruent if the lines intercepted by the transversal are parallel. The lines are parallel if alternate interior, alternate exterior, or corresponding angles are congruent.

### What are the different types of alternate angles?

Those angles are known as interior or exterior angles. Alternate angles are shaped by the two parallel lines crossed by a transversal. EF and GH are the two parallel lines. If two parallel lines are cut by a transversal, then the alternate angles are equal.

### What is an alternate exterior?

**Alternate** **Exterior** Angles. When two lines are crossed by another line (called the Transversal): The pairs of angles on opposite sides of the transversal but outside the two lines are called **Alternate** **Exterior** Angles.
