transversal

In geometry, a transversal is a line that passes through two lines in the same plane at two distinct points

perpendicular line

In elementary geometry, the property of being perpendicular is the relationship between two lines which meet at a right angle

right triangle

A right triangle or right-angled triangle is a triangle in which one angle is a right angle

Pythagorean theorem

In mathematics, the Pythagorean theorem, also known as Pythagoras's theorem, is a fundamental relation in Euclidean geometry among the three sides of a right triangle

vertical angle

Vertical angles are opposite angles at an intersection of two straight lines
