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

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

6
Theorem If the diagonals of a quadrilateral bisect each other, then the quadrilateral is a parallelogram.

7
Note: we also have our definition of a parallelogram: If two pairs of opposite sides of a quadrilateral are parallel, then the quadrilateral is a parallelogram.

8
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!

9
Theorem If one angle of a parallelogram is a right angle, then the parallelogram is a rectangle.

10
Theorem If the diagonals of a parallelogram are congruent, then the parallelogram is a rectangle.

11
The previous 2 statements 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.

12
Theorem If one pair of adjacent sides of a parallelogram are congruent, then the parallelogram is a rhombus.

13
Theorem If the diagonals of a parallelogram bisect the angles of the parallelogram, then the parallelogram is a rhombus.

14
Theorem If the diagonals of a parallelogram are perpendicular then the parallelogram is a rhombus.

15
The previous 3 statements will 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.

16
**What does it take to make a square?**

It must be a parallelogram, rectangle and rhombus.

17
**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.
