Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0nope, doesnt have to be congruent

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0we want it to be a parallelogram. only opposite sides of a parallogram have to be congruent, but thats not really going to be used here

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well, if DAB = 40º, and DCB = 40º then ADC = ABC which makes it a parallelogram right?

perl

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i meant, not all 4 sides have to be congruent

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0because if those two angles are equal then wouldnt the other two that are across from each other be equal?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Really Peter?:/ Try drawing that with those two angles equaling exactly 40º and see if you can get the other two angles not to equal each other.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0DC and AB are congruent angles tho right? so if ABC = DCB then ADC = CBA which means DC = AB and DA = BC

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Definition: A kite is a quadrilateral with two distinct pairs of adjacent sides that are congruent. (1) The diagonals of a kite meet at a right angle. (2) Kites have exactly one pair of opposite angles that are congruent.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1@perl in my opinion the answer would be option b and option d!!!!!

perl
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0option d is wrong, because you can produce a kite , b is right

perl

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0a kite satisfies option d and is not a parallelogram

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1in triangle abc, it is an isosceles triangle. it means that angle 1=angle2!!!! right @Peter14

Peter14

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0sure. set the sum of angles 1 and 4 to 40 degrees and the sum of angles 2 and 5 will also be 40 degrees.

Peter14

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0sure, it could be a rhombus, and therefore a parallelogram, but you can't assume that.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0angles 3 and (not given) could vary. the sum just has to be 280.

Peter14

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0sure, let's go with your question. yes, angle 1 = angle 2 and angle 4= angle 5.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@Peter14 this definition is wrong: Definition: A kite is a quadrilateral with two distinct pairs of adjacent sides that are congruent. (1) The diagonals of a kite meet at a right angle. (2) Kites have exactly one pair of opposite angles that are congruent.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it doesnt have to be exactly one pair of congruent sides, both pairs could be congruent. here is an animation http://www.mathsisfun.com/definitions/kite.html

perl
