Transversal is a line which intersects two or more lines at distinct points
Since line XY intersects line AB & CD, at distinct points P & Q
It is transversal.
It can also intersect more than 2 lines
Here XY intersects these 4 lines.
At distinct points P, Q, R, S.
So, it is a transversal
Here, line XY intersects AB & CD
at point O.
Since it does not intersect at distinct points,
it is not a transversal.
We talk about transversal of parallel lines
line l and m are parallel
and line p is the transversal of line l & m.
Let’s learn the angles formed by the transversal.
