Use the following, when GIVEN a parallelogram:


DEFINITION: A parallelogram is a quadrilateral with both pairs of
opposite sides parallel.

THEOREM: If a quadrilateral is a parallelogram, it


has 2 sets of opposite sides congruent. *

THEOREM: If a quadrilateral is a parallelogram, it


has 2 sets of opposite angles congruent. *

THEOREM: If a quadrilateral is a parallelogram, it


has consecutive angles which are supplementary.

THEOREM: If a quadrilateral is a parallelogram, it


has diagonals which bisect each other. *

sides congruent, then it is a parallelogram. *

THEOREM: If a quadrilateral has 2 sets of opposite


angles congruent, then it is a parallelogram. *

THEOREM: If a quadrilateral has consecutive angles


which are supplementary, then it is a parallelogram.

THEOREM: If a quadrilateral has diagonals which


bisect each other, then it is a parallelogram. *
THEOREM: If a quadrilateral has one set of opposite
sides which are both congruent and parallel, then it is
a parallelogram.
This last method can save time and energy when working a proof!
