2. If two parallel lines are cut by a transversal, the bisectors of two alternate-interior angles are parallel.

3. If two parallel lines are cut by a transversal, the bisectors of two corresponding angles are parallel.

4. If two lines are cut by a transversal making the alternateexterior angles equal, the lines are parallel.

5. If two lines are cut by a transversal making the two exterior angles on the same side of the transversal supplementary, the lines are parallel.

6. If side AC of triangle ABC is bisected at E, and BE is drawn and then extended its own length to F, AF is parallel to BC.

7. If a quadrilateral has all angles right angles, the figure is a parallelogram.

8. In AABC, E and F are the mid-points of AB and AC respectively; EF is extended its own length to H. Prove AE = and ||HC.

12. If two straight lines are cut by a transversal making alternateinterior angles equal, any other transversal makes alternate-interior angles equal.

13. The line bisecting the exterior angle at the vertex of an isosceles triangle is parallel to the base.

14. If on the equal sides of an isosceles triangle equal distances are measured from the vertex, the line joining these points is parallel to the base.

15. If a line is drawn connecting the ends of the bisectors of the base angles of an isosceles triangle, this line is parallel to the base.

16. If a line is drawn connecting the ends of the perpendiculars from the ends of the base to the sides of an isosceles triangle, this line is parallel to the base.

17. If a line is drawn connecting the ends of the medians to the sides of an isosceles triangle, this line is parallel to the base.

18. If an exterior angle of a triangle equals twice an opposite interior angle, the triangle is isosceles.

19. A method of finding the distance between a moving boat and a distant object such as a lighthouse:

Let A be the lighthouse and C the A boat, moving along CD. Find the angle ACD. As the boat moves, this angle increases. When the angle is twice as large, such as ABD, the distance CB, which the boat has gone, equals AB. Why?
