# Geometry - Things to remember: Def of ________ To use when redescribing an earlier action Add; Addition Property A+B=A+B Subtr; Subtraction

property A–B=A-B Mult; Multiplication Property A*B=A*B Div; Division Property A / B = A /B Distr; Distribute Property A(C + B) = AC + AB Ruler Postulate AB = | A – B | = | B-A| Segment or Angle Addition Postulate AB + BC = AC A+ B=C Distance of 2 points Midpoint of 2 points L.P; Linear Pair Postulate 2 adjacent angles which form a 180 degree angle Vertical Angle Share a vertex and are on opposite sides of two intersecting lines Reflective property A= A Transitive Property A = B, B = C, therefore A = C Symmetry Property B = A, A = B Right Angle Congruency Rt ≅ Corresponding Angles

A ≅ C, B ≅ D If // then Corr ≅ OR If Corr Alternate Interior Angles

≅ then //

A ≅ D, B ≅ C If // then Alt Int ≅ OR If Alt Int Alternate Exterior Angles

≅ then //

A ≅ D, B ≅ C If // then Alt Ext ≅ OR If Alt Ext Same Side Interior

≅ then //

A ≅ C, B ≅ D If // then Ssi supp OR If Ssi supp then // Slope Ratio of rise to run Slope of parallel lines They will be congruent Slope of perpendicular lines One would be the negative reciprocal of the other Slope intercept form y = mx + b m = slope b = y- intercept Standard form Ax + By = C Point Slope form y –y1 = m(x – x1)

Perpendicular lines

If 1 ≅ 2 then x ⊥ y If x ⊥ y then 1 , 2, 3, 4 are right angles Perpendicular Transversal

If a // b and c ⊥ a then c ⊥ b Lines Perpendicular to a Transversal

If a ⊥ c and b ⊥ c then a // b
