<p>The pink angles are adjacent to the blue angle and form a straight line, so we know that they measure <var>180 - MEASURE</var> degrees.</p>
<div class="graphie" data-update="parallel-lines">
graph.pl.drawAdjacentAngles( KNOWN_INDEX, true, "#FF00A5" );
</div>
</div>
<p>It makes sense that the pink angles are equal because they are opposite each other.</p>
<p>One of the pink angles corresponds with the orange angle, and the other pink angle forms an alternate interior angle.</p>
<div>
<p>The orange angle equals the pink angles and measures <var>180 - MEASURE</var> degrees.</p>
<div class="graphie" data-update="parallel-lines">
graph.pl.drawAngle( UNKNOWN_INDEX, true, "#FFA500" );
</div>

<p>Note that the blue and orange angles are supplementary.</p>
