Vertically Opposite Angles ( vertical angles ) are the angles opposite each other when two lines cross.

The measures of vertical angles are equal.

∠ 1 = ∠3

∠ 2 = ∠4

In fact these angles are congruent.

In other word, we can say that two angles formed by two intersecting lines having no common arm are called

Note : From the above figure, we can say that ∠1 and ∠2 form a linear pair. Also , ∠2 and ∠3; ∠3 and ∠4 ; ∠4 and ∠1.

1) Find the value of ‘y’.

Since ∠COD and ∠ EOF are vertical angles.

∴ ∠ COD = ∠ EOF

⇒ ∠COD = 5y

Now, OA and OB are opposite rays.

∴ ∠AOD + ∠DOC + ∠COB = 180

⇒ 2y + 5y + 5y = 180

⇒ 12y = 180

⇒ y = 180/12

⇒ y = 15.
