## 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. *

## THEOREM: If a quadrilateral is a parallelogram, it

has diagonals which form 2 congruent triangles.

## Use the following, to PROVE a parallelogram:

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

## THEOREM: If a quadrilateral has 2 sets of opposite

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!
