#### Definitions

acute angle an angle whose degree measure is greater than 0 and less than 90
alternate exterior angles angles on opposite sides of a transversal, outside the two intersected lines.
alternate interior angles angles on opposite sides of a transversal, inside the two intersected lines.
angle bisector a ray that divides an angle into two congruant angles
bisector a line tht divides an angle or a segment into two equal parts
