Notice that two opposite sides have a rise and run of 4 and 2. The other two opposite sides have a rise and run of 7 and 3. Therefore both pairs of opposite sides are congruent. It's at least a parallelogram. Is it also a rectangle? Are slopes 2/4 and 7/3 negative reciprocals? Simplify them and multiply them together. If their product is 1, they are and it's a rectangle, if not, it's not a rectangle. 2/4 = 1/2 1/2 * (7)/3 = 7/6 which is not 1, so it's not a rectangle, but it is a parallelogram.
