(1) Angles

(2) Angles

(3) From (1) and (2)

(4) Angles

(5) Considering any other angle in this group of 8 angles formed by two parallel and transversal, we (a) use the fact that it is vertical and, consequently, congruent to one of the angles analyzed above and (b) use the property of being congruent or supplemental proved above.
