Identify Parallelograms
Determine whether the quadrilateral is a parallelogram. Justify your answer. Answer: Each pair of opposite sides has the same measure. Therefore, they are congruent. If both pairs of opposite sides of a quadrilateral are congruent, the quadrilateral is a parallelogram. Example 1

A. Both pairs of opp. sides ||. B. Both pairs of opp. sides . C. Both pairs of opp. ’s . D. One pair of opp. sides both || and . A B C D Example 1

Use Parallelograms to Prove Relationships
MECHANICS Scissor lifts, like the platform lift shown below, are commonly applied to tools intended to lift heavy items. In the diagram, A  C and B  D. Explain why the consecutive angles will always be supplementary, regardless of the height of the platform. Example 2

Use Parallelograms to Prove Relationships
Answer: Since both pairs of opposite angles of quadrilateral ABCD are congruent, ABCD is a parallelogram by Theorem Theorem 6.5 states that consecutive angles of parallelograms are supplementary. Therefore, mA + mB = 180 and mC + mD = 180. By substitution, mA + mD = 180 and mC + mB = 180. Example 2

Parallelograms and Coordinate Geometry
COORDINATE GEOMETRY Graph quadrilateral QRST with vertices Q(–1, 3), R(3, 1), S(2, –3), and T(–2, –1). Determine whether the quadrilateral is a parallelogram. Justify your answer by using the Slope Formula. If the opposite sides of a quadrilateral are parallel, then it is a parallelogram. Example 4

Parallelograms and Coordinate Geometry
Answer: Since opposite sides have the same slope, QR║ST and RS║TQ. Therefore, QRST is a parallelogram by definition. Example 4

Graph quadrilateral EFGH with vertices E(–2, 2), F(2, 0), G(1, –5), and H(–3, –2). Determine whether the quadrilateral is a parallelogram. A. yes B. no A B Example 4

Write a coordinate proof for the following statement.
Parallelograms and Coordinate Proofs Write a coordinate proof for the following statement. If both pairs of opposite sides of a quadrilateral are congruent, then the quadrilateral is a parallelogram. Step 1 Position quadrilateral ABCD on the coordinate plane such that AB  DC and AD  BC. ● Begin by placing the vertex A at the origin. ● Let AB have a length of a units. Then B has coordinates (a, 0). Example 5

Parallelograms and Coordinate Proofs
● So that the distance from D to C is also a units, let the x-coordinate of D be b and of C be b + a. ● Since AD  BC position the endpoints of DC so that they have the same y-coordinate, c. Example 5

Parallelograms and Coordinate Proofs Step 2 Use your figure to write a proof. Given: quadrilateral ABCD, AB  DC, AD  BC Prove: ABCD is a parallelogram. Coordinate Proof: By definition a quadrilateral is a parallelogram if opposite sides are parallel. Use the Slope Formula. Example 5

The slope of AB is 0. The slope of CD is 0.
Parallelograms and Coordinate Proofs The slope of AB is 0. The slope of CD is 0. Since AB and CD have the same slope and AD and BC have the same slope, AD║BC and AB║CD. Answer: So, quadrilateral ABCD is a parallelogram because opposite sides are parallel. Example 5
