∠ 4 and ∠ 3 form a linear pair, so they are supplementary by the Linear Pair Theorem. Therefore, m ∠ 4 + m ∠ 3 = 180º. Also, ∠ 1 and ∠ 2 are vertical angles, so ∠ 1 ≅ ∠ 2 by the Vertical Angles

Theorem. It is given that ∠ 1 ≅ ∠ 4. So by the Transitive Property of Congruence, ∠ 4 ≅ ∠ 2, and by the definition of congruent angles, m ∠ 4 = m ∠ 2. By substitution, m ∠ 2 + m ∠ 3 = 180º, so ∠ 2 and ∠ 3 are supplementary by the definition of supplementary angles.
