## Lines and Angles

Summary

The content provides a foundational understanding of geometry, focusing on the properties and relationships of lines, angles, and shapes, which are crucial for mastering geometry questions on the ACT exam.

- Geometry involves the study of shapes, requiring visual skills that can be enhanced through drawing and physically building shapes.
- Lines are straight and infinite, with line segments representing finite portions of lines. It's critical not to confuse straight lines with horizontal or vertical orientations without explicit indications.
- Angles are formed between two lines or segments, measured in degrees, and can be bisected to create two equal angles. Understanding the dynamic nature of angles and their measurements is key.
- Special properties of angles, including supplementary angles (adding up to 180 degrees) and congruent angles (equal in measure), are fundamental concepts.
- The concept of parallel lines and the angles formed when they are intersected by a transversal is essential, with the need to recognize that all large angles or all small angles created in such a scenario are equal.
