Def. of a parallelogram.

Ex. 1: Proof of Theorem 6.6
Ex. 2: Proving Quadrilaterals are Parallelograms
• As the sewing box below is opened, the trays are always parallel to each other. Why?
Each pair of hinges are opposite sides of a quadrilateral. The 2.75 inch sides of the quadrilateral are opposite and congruent. The 2 inch sides are also opposite and congruent. Because opposite sides of the quadrilateral are congruent, it is a parallelogram. By the definition of a parallelogram, opposite sides are parallel, so the trays of the sewing box are always parallel.Ex. 2: Proving Quadrilaterals are Parallelograms
Another Theorem ~
• Theorem 6.10—If one pair of opposite sides of a quadrilateral are congruent and parallel, then the quadrilateral is a parallelogram.

Objective 2: Using Coordinate Geometry
• When a figure is in the coordinate plane, you can use the Distance Formula (see—it never goes away) to prove that sides are congruent and you can use the slope formula (see how you use this again?) to prove sides are parallel.
Method 1—Show that opposite sides have the same slope, so they are parallel.

Slope of AB.

3-(-1) = - 4

1 - 2

Slope of CD.

1 – 5 = - 4

7 – 6

Slope of BC.

5 – 3 = 2

6 - 1 5

Slope of DA.

- 1 – 1 = 2

2 - 7 5

AB and CD have the same slope, so they are parallel. Similarly, BC ║ DA.

Ex. 4: Using properties of parallelograms

Because opposite sides are parallel, ABCD is a parallelogram.

Method 2—Show that opposite sides have the same length.

AB=√(1 – 2)2 + [3 – (- 1)2] = √17

CD=√(7 – 6)2 + (1 - 5)2 = √17

BC=√(6 – 1)2 + (5 - 3)2 = √29

DA= √(2 – 7)2 + (-1 - 1)2 = √29

AB ≅ CD and BC ≅ DA. Because both pairs of opposites sides are congruent, ABCD is a parallelogram.

Ex. 4: Using properties of parallelograms

Slope of AB = Slope of CD = -4

AB=CD = √17

AB and CD are congruent and parallel, so ABCD is a parallelogram.
