<p>Notice that the blue and orange angles are in the same position but at different intersections.</p>
<p>One way to describe the angles is to say that they are corresponding angles.</p>
<p>There is a proof for why corresponding angles are equal, but for now let's just take that on faith.</p>
<p>The orange angle measures <var>MEASURE</var> degrees.</p>
