**Identify Parallelograms**Determine whether the quadrilateral is a parallelogram. Justify your answer. Answer: Each pair of opposite sides has the same measure. Therefore, they are congruent.If both pairs of opposite sides of a quadrilateral are congruent, the quadrilateral is a parallelogram. Example 1**A**B C D Which method would prove the quadrilateral is a parallelogram? A. Both pairs of opp. sides ||. B. Both pairs of opp. sides . C. Both pairs of opp. ’s . D. One pair of opp. sides both || and . Example 1**Use Parallelograms to Prove Relationships**MECHANICS Scissor lifts, like the platform lift shown below, are commonly applied to tools intended to lift heavy items. In the diagram, A C and B D. Explain why the consecutive angles will always be supplementary, regardless of the height of the platform. Example 2**Use Parallelograms to Prove Relationships**Answer: Since both pairs of opposite angles of quadrilateral ABCD are congruent, ABCD is a parallelogram by Theorem 6.10. Theorem 6.5 states that consecutive angles of parallelograms are supplementary. Therefore, mA + mB = 180 and mC + mD = 180. By substitution, mA + mD = 180 and mC + mB = 180. Example 2**A**B C D The diagram shows a car jack used to raise a car from the ground. In the diagram, AD BC and AB DC. Based on this information, which statement will be true, regardless of the height of the car jack. A. A B B. A C C.AB BC D.mA + mC = 180 Example 2**Use Parallelograms and Algebra to Find Values**Find x and y so that the quadrilateral is a parallelogram. Opposite sides of a parallelogram are congruent. Example 3**Use Parallelograms and Algebra to Find Values**AB = DC Substitution Distributive Property Subtract 3x from each side. Add 1 to each side. Example 3**Use Parallelograms and Algebra to Find Values**Substitution Distributive Property Subtract 3y from each side. Add 2 to each side. Answer: So, when x = 7 and y = 5, quadrilateral ABCD is a parallelogram. Example 3**A**B C D Find m so that the quadrilateral is a parallelogram. A.m = 2 B.m = 3 C.m = 6 D.m = 8 Example 3**Parallelograms and Coordinate Geometry**COORDINATE GEOMETRYGraph quadrilateral QRST with vertices Q(–1, 3), R(3, 1), S(2, –3), and T(–2, –1). Determine whether the quadrilateral is a parallelogram. Justify your answer by using the Slope Formula. If the opposite sides of a quadrilateral are parallel, then it is a parallelogram. Example 4**Answer: Since opposite sides have the same slope, QR║ST**and RS║TQ. Therefore, QRST is a parallelogram by definition. Parallelograms and Coordinate Geometry Example 4**A**B Graph quadrilateral EFGH with vertices E(–2, 2), F(2, 0), G(1, –5), and H(–3, –2). Determine whether the quadrilateral is a parallelogram. A. yes B. no Example 4**Step 1 Position quadrilateral ABCD on the coordinate plane**such that AB DC and AD BC. ● Let AB have a length of a units. Then B has coordinates (a, 0). Parallelograms and Coordinate Proofs Write a coordinate proof for the following statement. If both pairs of opposite sides of a quadrilateral are congruent, then the quadrilateral is a parallelogram. ● Begin by placing the vertex A at the origin. Example 5**● Since AD BC position the endpoints of DC so that they**have the same y-coordinate, c. Parallelograms and Coordinate Proofs ● So that the distance from D to C is also a units, let the x-coordinate of D be b and of C be b + a. Example 5**Given: quadrilateral ABCD, AB DC, AD BC**Parallelograms and Coordinate Proofs Step 2 Use your figure to write a proof. Prove:ABCD is a parallelogram. Coordinate Proof: By definition a quadrilateral is a parallelogram if opposite sides are parallel. Use the Slope Formula. Example 5**The slope of AB is 0.**The slope of CD is 0. Since AB and CD have the same slope and AD and BC have the same slope, AD║BC and AB║CD. Parallelograms and Coordinate Proofs Answer: So, quadrilateral ABCD is a parallelogram because opposite sides are parallel. Example 5**A**B A.AB = a units and DC = a units; slope of AB = 0 and slope of DC = 0 B.AD = c units and BC = c units; slope of and slope of Which of the following can be used to prove the statement below? If a quadrilateral is a parallelogram, then one pair of opposite sides is both parallel and congruent. Example 5
