not saying this is an exhaustive list, but from an initial glance it looks as if there are ...

1. pairs of vertical angles

2. linear pairs of angles

3. angles formed by parallel lines cut by a transversal ...

a. corresponding angles
b. alternate-interior angles
c. same-side interior angles

4. interior angles of a triangle

... are you familiar with these angle relationships?

Sort of- I'm still trying to grasp these concepts, but I am somewhat familiar with what you're talking about.

So far, I've got:

Angle 1: 47 degrees ( because Angle 1 and the angle measuring 47° are vertical, so they are also congruent.)

Angle 18: 90 degrees (because there is a right angle sign and all right angles measure 90 degrees).

Can anyone answer these questions:

Are angles 2 and 3 a linear pair? What are angle 1 and 3 to each other?

no ... angle 3 and the 47 deg angle are vertical angles, so angle 3 = 47 deg

yes

no ... linear pairs are 6 & 7 , 8 & 9, 15 % the 128 deg angle, etc ...
