created by chris markstrum 2005 If a quadrilateral has both pairs of opposite sides are congruent, theorem AB CD p a r a l l e l o g r a m then it is a parallelogram

created by chris markstrum 2005 theorem If both pairs of opposite angles of a quadrilateral are congruent, AB CD parallelogram then it is a parallelogram

created by chris markstrum 2005 theorem If a quadrilateral has one angle that is supplementary to both of its consecutive angles, AB CD p a r a l l e l o g r a m then it is a parallelogram.

created by chris markstrum 2005 theorem if a quadrilateral’s diagonals bisect each other, AB CD M p a r a l l e l o g r a m then it is a parallelogram

created by chris markstrum 2005 AB CD theorem If a quadrilateral has one pair of opposite sides parallel and congruent, p a r a l l e l o g r a m then it is a parallelogram

created by chris markstrum 2005 Example Decide whether you are given enough information to determine that the quadrilateral is a parallelogram. Explain your reasoning. If a quadrilateral has one angle that is supplementary to both of its consecutive angles, then it is a parallelogram. YES

created by chris markstrum 2005 Example Describe how you would prove that ABCD is a parallelogram. If a quadrilateral has one pair of opposite sides parallel and congruent, then it is a parallelogram. Congruent alternate interior angles make parallel lines.

created by chris markstrum 2005 Example Definition of parallelogram Congruent alternate interior angles make parallel lines. Describe how you would prove that ABCD is a parallelogram.
