The parallel lines at the right are cut by a transversal. Find the value of x.
a. Angles 1 and 2 are corresponding angles, \(\displaystyle{m}∠{1}={45}°\), and \(\displaystyle{m}∠{2}={\left({x}+{25}\right)}°\).
b. Angles 3 and 4 are alternate interior angles, \(\displaystyle{m}∠{3}={2}{x}°\), and \(\displaystyle{m}∠{4}={80}°\).

a.Since then lines are parallel, then corresponding angles are congruent and thus, have the same measure:
\(\displaystyle{m}∠{1}={m}∠{2}\)
45=x+25
20=x
or
x=20
b.Since then lines are parallel, then alternate interior angles are congruent and thus, have the same measure:
\(\displaystyle{m}∠{3}={m}∠{4}\)
2x=80
x=40
0
