The drawing is a herring illusion, in which intersecting transversal make two parallel lines appear to be curves. Describe a way you can use a protector to verify that the two lines are parallel.

Measure the corresponding angles with respect to each transversal. For each transversal, if the corresponding angles are equal, then it can be said that two red colored lines are parallel..

See the step by step solution

Step 1. Given Information.

Some transversals intersect two parallel lines and make two parallel lines appear to be curved.

Step 2. Definition used.

Transversal and parallel lines

If a transversal line intersects two lines and the corresponding angles are equal, it can be said that two lines are parallel.

Step 3. Procedure.

Here, two red colored lines are intersected by many transversals throughout the length. So, first measure corresponding angles corresponding to each transversal line. If the corresponding angles corresponding to each transversal line are equal, it can be said that two red colored lines are parallel.

Step 4. Conclusion.

Here, two red colored lines are intersected by many transversals throughout the length. So, first measure the corresponding angles corresponding to each transversal line. If the corresponding angles corresponding to each transversal line are equal, it can be said that two red colored lines are parallel.
