The correct answers are: (b) substitution; c) definition of supplementary angles; (d) the subtraction property of equality. Explanation: We are given that ∠2 = ∠4 and m∠2 = 110°. We can replace the measure of ∠4 instead of m∠2 are congruent, and get m∠4 = 110°, with the reason for the replacement. Then we have that ∠3 and ∠4 are a linear pair from a diagram, and that ∠3 and ∠4 are complementary with the reason of be of the linear pair postulate. Since they are complementary, this means that m∠3 + m∠4 = 180°, with the reason of be of the definition of supplementary angles. Once we have this, we know that m∠4 = 110°; this gives us that m∠3+110°=180°. Then, we subtract 110 from both sides: m∠3 + 110°-110° = 180°-110°This gives us that m∠3 = 70°, with the reason for the subtraction property of equality.
