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 non-consecutive 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 = _____ .
