  1. no, in order for the sides to be parallel, same side interior angles should be supplementary... in your diagram, (50+37) + (50+37) = 174

  4. 50-37=13
    Take 13 and add 90 you get 103
    Subtract 50 from 103 you get 63
    Subtract 37 from 103 and you get 66
    66-63= 3
    Your answer is 3

  5. No, the side pieces of the frame are not parallel. According to page 165 of the Geometry textbook, in order for the sides to be parallel, each side has to add up to 90 degrees. Instead, they add to 87, which is molding, not parallel.
