Given: l || m and a transversal intersect these two parallel lines at A and B respectively.

AP and BQ are the bisectors of two alternate angles

To prove: AP || BQ

Proof: ∵ l || m (given)

⇒ ∠1 = ∠2

(alternate interior angles)

⇒ $\frac { 1 }{ 2 }$∠1 = $\frac { 1 }{ 2 }$∠2

⇒ ∠PAB = ∠QBA

Hence, the two lines AP and BQ are intersected by a transversal AB forming a pair of alternate angles equal.

∴AP || BQ Hence proved
