Definition • A parallelogram is a quadrilateral whose opposite sides are parallel. • Its symbol is a small figure:

Naming a Parallelogram • A parallelogram is named using all four vertices. • You can start from any one vertex, but you must continue in a clockwise or counterclockwise direction. • For example, this can be either ABCD or ADCB.

Basic Properties • There are four basic properties of all parallelograms. • These properties have to do with the angles, the sides and the diagonals.

Opposite Sides Theorem Opposite sides of a parallelogram are congruent. • That means that • So, if AB = 7, then _____ = 7? .

Opposite Angles • One pair of opposite angles is A and C. The other pair is B and D.

Opposite Angles Theorem Opposite angles of a parallelogram are congruent. • Complete: If m A = 75 and m B = 105 , then m C = ______ and m D = ______.

Consecutive Angles • Each angle is consecutive to two other angles. A is consecutive with B and D.

Consecutive Angles in Parallelograms Theorem Consecutive angles in a parallelogram are supplementary. • Therefore, m A + m B = 180 and m A + m D = 180. • If m<C = 46 , then m B = _____? Consecutive INTERIOR Angles are Supplementary!

Diagonals • Diagonals are segments that join nonconsecutive vertices. • For example, in this diagram, the only two diagonals are.

Diagonal Property When the diagonals of a parallelogram intersect, they meet at the midpoint of each diagonal. • So, P is the midpoint of. • Therefore, they bisect each other; so and. • But, the diagonals are not congruent!

Diagonal Property Theorem The diagonals of a parallelogram bisect each other.

Parallelogram Summary • By its definition, opposite sides are parallel. Other properties (theorems): • Opposite sides are congruent. • Opposite angles are congruent. • Consecutive angles are supplementary. • The diagonals bisect each other.

Examples • 1. Draw HKLP. • 2. Complete: HK = _______ and HP = ____. • 3. m<K = m<______. • 4. m<L + m<______ = 180. • 5. If m<P = 65 , then m<H = ____, m<K = ______ and m<L =______.

Examples (cont’d) • • • 6. Draw in the diagonals. They intersect at M. 7. Complete: If HM = 5, then ML = ____. 8. If KM = 7, then KP = ____. 9. If HL = 15, then ML = ____. 10. If m<HPK = 36 , then m<PKL = _____.

Review: Properties of Parallelograms • • • Opposite sides are parallel. Opposite sides are congruent. Opposite angles are congruent. Consecutive angles are supplementary. The diagonals bisect each other.

How can you tell if a quadrilateral is a parallelogram? • Defn: A quadrilateral is a parallelogram iff opposite sides are parallel. • Property If a quadrilateral is a parallelogram, then opposite sides are parallel. • Test If opposite sides of a quadrilateral are parallel, then it is a parallelogram.
