Example 2.
If a quadrilateral is a parallelogram, then the diagonals bisect each other. Complete the diagram, and develop an appropriate Given and Prove for this case. Use triangle congruence criteria to demonstrate why diagonals of a parallelogram bisect each other. Remember, now that we have proved opposite sides and angles of a parallelogram to be congruent, we are free to use these facts as needed (i.e., AD=CB, AB=CD, ∠A≅∠C, ∠B≅∠D). Given: _____________
Parallelogram ABCD

Now we have established why the properties of parallelograms that we have assumed to be true are in fact true. By extension, these facts hold for any type of parallelogram, including rectangles, squares, and rhombuses. Let us look at one last fact concerning rectangles. We established that the diagonals of general parallelograms bisect each other. Let us now demonstrate that a rectangle has congruent diagonals.

Students may need a reminder that a rectangle is a parallelogram with four right angles.

Example 3.
If the parallelogram is a rectangle, then the diagonals are equal in length. Complete the diagram, and develop an appropriate Given and Prove for this case. Use triangle congruence criteria to demonstrate why diagonals of a rectangle are congruent. As in the last proof, remember to use any already proven facts as needed. Given: _______

Discussion
How can we use our knowledge of triangle congruence criteria to establish other geometry facts? For instance, what can we now prove about the properties of parallelograms?
To date, we have defined a parallelogram to be a quadrilateral in which both pairs of opposite sides are parallel. However, we have assumed other details about parallelograms to be true, too. We assume that:
→ Opposite sides are congruent.
→ Opposite angles are congruent.
→ Diagonals bisect each other.
Let us examine why each of these properties is true.
