## Anikate 2 years ago What are consecutive sides and consecutive angles?

1. anabella97

consecutive sides means like on after the other. like in a rectangle the two sides that forum the right angle. are consecutive and so on.

Consecutive sides are the sides of a polygon that share an end point. Consecutive angles are when the angles cross...

4. Ashleyisakitty

Anikate, where i drew the points on that polygon is what a consecutive side is. I hope my crappy drawing helps you!

5. kugler97

consecutive angles have to equal 180 degrees.

6. Anikate

Decid where u r given enough information to determine that the quadrilateral is a prallelogram. 2 PAIRS OF CONSECUTIVE SIDES ARE CONGRUENT.

thx for the diagram ashley

@kugler97 You are right about consecutive sides, but consecutive angles are angles that are next to each other, not opposite. <B is consecutive to <A, and <B is also consecuitive to <C. <B is opposite angle D. <B is not consecutive to <D

10. Anikate

but what's consecutive sides?

11. kugler97

@mathstudent55 i am sorry lol i got a little confiused on the angles lol

13. Anikate

for short it's just where 2 lines meet?

14. mathstudent55

Consecutive means the next one in order. If you go around a polygon, start at one angle, the next angle over in either direction is a consecutive anglr. The same is true for sides. Start at any side. The next side in either direction is a consecutive side.

15. Anikate

should they be congruent?

16. Anikate

ok then

17. Anikate

so can u answer this question:

18. Anikate

Decid where u r given enough information to determine that the quadrilateral is a prallelogram. 2 PAIRS OF CONSECUTIVE SIDES ARE CONGRUENT.

19. Anikate

Decide weather u r given enough information to determine that the quadrilateral is a parallelogram. 2 PAIRS OF CONSECUTIVE SIDES ARE CONGRUENT.

20. Anikate

hello?

21. mathstudent55

I think this was your question: Decid where u r given enough information to determine that the quadrilateral is a prallelogram. 2 PAIRS OF CONSECUTIVE SIDES ARE CONGRUENT The answer is no. When you have two pairs of consecutive sides congruent, you have a kite for sure, but not necessarily a parallelogram.

oh ok thx
