### Guidance

**Same Side Interior Angles** are two angles that are on the same side of the transversal and on the interior of the two lines.

**Same Side Interior Angles Theorem:** If two parallel lines are cut by a transversal, then the same side interior angles are supplementary.

So, if

**Converse of the Same Side Interior Angles Theorem:** If two lines are cut by a transversal and the consecutive interior angles are supplementary, then the lines are parallel.

#### Example A

Using the picture above, list all the pairs of same side interior angles.

Same Side Interior Angles:

#### Example B

Find

Here,

This example shows why if two parallel lines are cut by a transversal, the same side interior angles are supplementary.

#### Example C

Find the measure of

The given angles are same side interior angles. The lines are parallel, therefore the angles add up to
