ACCESS - Parallel Lines and Transversals
- Straight Lines
Lines AB and CD are transversals. Lines MX, NY, and OZ are parallel lines cutting the transversals. You can move lines AB and CD by dragging points A and C. You can adjust the slope of the parallel lines by dragging M, and adjust the distance between the lines by dragging M, N, or O. The spreadsheet to the right shows the lengths and ratios of the segments formed by the parallel lines cutting the transversals. 1. What can you say about the ratios of the corresponding parts? Move the lines to verify that this is true.
