Same-Side Exterior Angles are angles that are on the exterior of the parallel lines and lie on the same side of the transversal.

In the figure below, parallel lines \(m\) and \(n\) are cut by the transversal \(t\).

same side exterior angles

The pairs of the same-side exterior angles are as follows:

\(\angle{1}\) and \(\angle{4}\)

\(\angle{2}\) and \(\angle{3}\)

Since the transversal intersected parallel lines, the alternate exterior angles are supplementary.
