6.2 Properties of Parallelograms

Properties of Parallelograms
Theorem 6.2 If a quadrilateral is a parallelogram, then its opposite sides are congruent. PQ = RS and SP = QR Theorem 6.3 If a quadrilateral is a parallelogram, then it opposite angles are congruent. <P = < R and < Q = < S Theorem 6.4 If a quadrilateral is a parallelogram, then its consecutive angles are supplementary. m<P + m<Q = 180o, m<Q + m<R = 180o m<R + m<S = 180o, m<S + m<P = 180o Theorem 6.5 If a quadrilateral is a parallelogram, then its diagonals bisect each other. QM = SM and PM = RM _ ~ Q R P S

Theorems 6.2 If a quadrilateral is a parallelogram, then its opposite sides are congruent. 6.3 If a quadrilateral is a parallelogram, then its opposite angles are congruent. Q R S P

Theorems 6.4 If a quadrilateral is a parallelogram, then its consecutive angles are supplementary. m<P + m<Q = 180° m<Q + m<R = 180° m<R + m<S = 180° m<S + m<P = 180° Q R S P

Using Properties of Parallelograms
PQRS is a parallelogram. Find the angle measure. m< R m< Q Q R 70 ° + m < Q = 180 ° m< Q = 110 ° 70° P S

Using Algebra with Parallelograms
PQRS is a parallelogram. Find the value of h. 3h = 1800 3h = 60 P Q h = 20 3h 120° S R

Theorems 6.5 If a quadrilateral is a parallelogram, then its diagonals bisect each other. R Q M P S
