**Honors Geometry Section 4.6 (1) Conditions for Special Quadrilaterals**

2
In section 4.5, we answered questions such as “If a quadrilateral is a parallelogram, what are its properties?” or “If a quadrilateral is a rhombus, what are its properties?” In this section we look to reverse the process, and answer the question “What must we know about a quadrilateral in order to say it is a parallelogram or a rectangle or a whatever?”

3
**What does it take to make a parallelogram**

What does it take to make a parallelogram? State whether the following conjectures are true or false. If it is false, draw a counterexample.

4
If one pair of opposite sides of a quadrilateral are congruent, then the quadrilateral is a parallelogram.

5
If one pair of opposite sides of a quadrilateral are parallel,then the quadrilateral is a parallelogram.

6
If one pair of opposite sides of a quadrilateral are both parallel and congruent, then the quadrilateral is a parallelogram.

7
If both pairs of opposite sides of a quadrilateral are parallel,then the quadrilateral is a parallelogram.

8
If both pairs of opposite sides of a quadrilateral are congruent, then the quadrilateral is a parallelogram.

9
**If the diagonals of a quadrilateral bisect each other, then the quadrilateral is a parallelogram.**

10
The last 4 statements will be our tests for determining if a quadrilateral is a parallelogram. If a quadrilateral does not satisfy one of these 4 tests, then we cannot say that it is a parallelogram!

11
**What does it take to make a rectangle**

What does it take to make a rectangle? State whether the following conjectures are true or false. If it is false, draw a counterexample.

12
**If one angle of a quadrilateral is a right angle, then the quadrilateral is a rectangle.**

13
**If one angle of a parallelogram is a right angle, then the parallelogram is a rectangle.**

14
**If the diagonals of a quadrilateral are congruent, then the quadrilateral is a rectangle.**

15
**If the diagonals of a parallelogram are congruent, then the parallelogram is a rectangle.**

16
**If the diagonals of a parallelogram are perpendicular , then the parallelogram is a rectangle.**

17
Statements 2 and 4 will be our tests for determining if a quadrilateral is a rectangle. Notice that in both of those statements you must know that the quadrilateral is a parallelogram before you can say that it is a rectangle.

18
**What does it take to make a rhombus**

What does it take to make a rhombus? State whether the following conjectures are true or false. If it is false, draw a counterexample.

19
**If one pair of adjacent sides of a quadrilateral are congruent, then the quadrilateral is a rhombus.**

20
**If one pair of adjacent sides of a parallelogram are congruent, then the parallelogram is a rhombus.**

21
**If the diagonals of a parallelogram are congruent, then the parallelogram is a rhombus.**

22
**If the diagonals of a parallelogram are perpendicular then the parallelogram is a rhombus.**

23
If the diagonals of a parallelogram bisect the angles of the parallelogram, then the parallelogram is a rhombus.

24
Statements 2, 4 and 5will be our tests for determining if a quadrilateral is a rhombus. Notice that in each of these statements you must know that the quadrilateral is a parallelogram before you can say that it is a rhombus.

25
**What does it take to make a square?**

It must be a parallelogram, rectangle and rhombus.

26
**Examples: Consider quad. OHMY with diagonals that intersect at point S**

Examples: Consider quad. OHMY with diagonals that intersect at point S. Determine if the given information allows you to conclude that quad. OHMY is a parallelogram, rectangle, rhombus or square. List all that apply.
