In the picture on the left, 1 and 2 are vertical angles. Likewise, A and B are vertical. Vertical angles are always congruent (equal).
Below is another picture of vertical angles. The blue pair and red pair of angles are congruent pairs of vertical angles.

Click and the points below to see the rule for vertical angles in action. m X in the diagram on the left is 157° since its vertical angle is 157°. What is the m B on the left? Angle B Angle B is 130° Vertical Angle problems can also involve algebraic expressions. To find the value of x, set the two vertical angles equal then solve the equation: x+5=2x3 x=8 What is the value of x? Answer x2 =133 x = 135°
What is the value of x?
Answer
2x+5 = 105° 2x = 100 ½(2x = 100) x = 50
Use the vertical angles theorem to solve for x
Answer 4x +7 = 131° 4x = 124 ¼(4x = 124) x = 31
