Parallel Lines and Transversals: Lesson

This Parallel Lines and Transversals: Lesson video also includes:

Segment transversals proportionally. Given a diagram with three parallel lines and two transversals, the narrator of a short video points out the parallel lines cut the transversals proportionally. The portion of a long playlist on geometry provides examples of the theorem in action.
