1. #mangle1 + mangle2 = 180^@#

Angles are said to be supplementary if they sum to #180^@#

2. Given

This is the second statement of the given information.

3. Definition of angle bisector

An angle bisector is a line, ray, or line segment that divides an angle into two equal parts. Depending on the teacher or work, it may also be prudent to add that #angle2# and #angle3# are the angles formed by the angle bisector #vec(BD)#

4. #mangle1+mangle3 = 180^@#

The substitution property of equality allows us to take two equal values and use them interchangeably in equations. In this case, we are substituting the equality in step 4 into the equation in step 2.

5. Definition of supplementary
