Vertical Angles
Two angles that are formed by intersecting lines and are opposite of each other. Their measures are equal.
Linear Pair
Two angles that form a line. These angles are supplementary.
Adjacent Angles
Two angles that are next to each other and share a common side.
Midpoint

Segment Addition Postulate
This states that if a segment is cut into two pieces, then the two pieces add up to the whole segment
Angle Addition Postulate
This states that if an angle is cut into two pieces, then the two pieces add up to the whole angle.
