Well, you should know that a linear pair is a pair of adjacent angles formed when two lines intersect. You also should know that  2 angles of a linear pair are always supplementary, which means their measures adds up to 180 degrees. What shows you that they are a linear pair is: identifying 2 adjacent angles formed by 2 lines that intersect. If you still don't understand or this really isn't the answer you were looking for, check this link out. You will see an example and the definition of a linear pair. Hope this helps! R.N.R (:
