Problem 551: Parallel lines, Transversal, Angles
Level: High School, College, Math Education

The figure shows line L1 parallel to L2 with the angles a, b, c, d, and e. Prove that a + c + e = b + d.

Parallel lines, transversal, Angles


Geometry problem solving is one of the most challenging skills for students to learn. When a problem requires auxiliary construction, the difficulty of the problem increases drastically, perhaps because deciding which construction to make is an ill-structured problem. By “construction,” we mean adding geometric figures (points, lines, planes) to a problem figure that wasn’t mentioned as "given."
