Definition:

A quadrilateral with both pairs of opposite sides parallel.

- The symbol for parallelogram is a smaller version of the figure.
- 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, the figure above can be either ABCD or
ADCB.

1.Both pairs of opposite sides are congruent.

2.Both pairs of opposite angles are congruent.

3. Diagonals bisect each other but are not congruent

P is the midpoint of AC and BD, so BP = PD and AP = PC.

m< K = m<______ .

m< L + m<______ = 180°.

If m< P = 65°, then m< H = ____, m< K = ____ and

m< L =____.

Draw the diagonals with their point of intersection labeled M.

If HM = 5, then ML = ____ .

If KM = 7, then KP = ____ .

If HL = 15, then ML = ____ .
