What is the difference between supplementary angles and linear pair?
supplementary angles:-supplementary angles are angles in which the sum of two angles is 180degree.
linear pair:-linear pair contains of two adjacent angles whose sum must be 180degree.
supplementary means 180
linear pairs also means 180
but in linear pairs there should be a straight line and a common line follow the figure
Linear Pair of angles
From Latin: linearis - "belonging to a line"
Definition: Two angles that are adjacent (share a leg) and supplementary (add up to 180°)
Try this Drag the orange dot at M.
In the figure above, the two angles ∠JKM and ∠LKM form a linear pair. They are supplementarybecause they always add to 180° and because they are adjacent, the two non-common legs form a straight line segment
