# What does a parallelogram equal?

**Parallelogram**is a flat shape with opposite sides parallel and

**equal**in length. | and || show

**equal**sides. Opposite sides are parallel. Opposite sides are

**equal**in length. Opposite angles are

**equal**(angles "a" are

**the same**, and angles "b" are

**the same**)

People also ask, what are the 4 properties of a parallelogram?

**There are six important properties of parallelograms to know:**

- Opposite sides are congruent (AB = DC).
- Opposite angels are congruent (D = B).
- Consecutive angles are supplementary (A + D = 180°).
- If one angle is right, then all angles are right.
- The diagonals of a parallelogram bisect each other.

Additionally, are diagonals in parallelograms equal? When a **parallelogram** is divided into two triangles we get to see that the angles across the common side( here the **diagonal**) are **equal**. This proves that the opposite angles in a **parallelogram** are also **equal**. The **diagonals** of a **parallelogram** are not of **equal** length.

Keeping this in consideration, are all the sides of a parallelogram equal?

The **Parallelogram** A **parallelogram** has opposite **sides** parallel and **equal** in length. Also opposite angles are **equal** (angles "A" are the same, and angles "B" are the same). NOTE: Squares, Rectangles and Rhombuses are **all Parallelograms**!

Are trapezoids parallelograms?

No, a **trapezoid** is not a **parallelogram**. A **trapezoid** is defined as having Exactly two parallel sides while a **parallelogram** has two pairs of parallel sides.
