nope, doesnt have to be congruent

perlBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
we 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

Well, if DAB = 40º, and DCB = 40º then ADC = ABC which makes it a parallelogram right?

i meant, not all 4 sides have to be congruent

because if those two angles are equal then wouldnt the other two that are across from each other be equal?
 one year ago

LoveYou*69Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Really 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.

peter, oh yes a kite does satisfy these conditions , but is not a parallelogram

sam, i would prefer you not, but...

DC and AB are congruent angles tho right? so if ABC = DCB then ADC = CBA which means DC = AB and DA = BC

Lets not give me a chance lol im making myself feel stupid

how about this: look at all the choices from D to A and try to draw a counterexample for each one.

It's not mine .. If it was mine I'd be able to do it. I have 100 in my geometry class. but im not even doing this stuff in mine

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.

@perl in my opinion the answer would be option b and option d!!!!!
 one year ago

perlBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
option d is wrong, because you can produce a kite , b is right
 one year ago

perlBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
a kite satisfies option d and is not a parallelogram
 one year ago

mayankdevnaniBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
but in quest. it is given that it is a parallegoram and in parallelogram , opposite sides are equal!!!!!

Peter14Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
no, in question it is given what conditions must be true for it to be a parallellogram

but what about angles of kite?????

only two angles are given to be 40 degrees. The other two angles can be anything so that the sum of the 4 angles is 360 degrees

in triangle abc, it is an isosceles triangle. it means that angle 1=angle2!!!! right @Peter14
 one year ago

Peter14Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
sure. set the sum of angles 1 and 4 to 40 degrees and the sum of angles 2 and 5 will also be 40 degrees.
 one year ago

Peter14Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
sure, it could be a rhombus, and therefore a parallelogram, but you can't assume that.

@Peter14 for this time, please forgot the question, concerntrate on my question!!!!
 one year ago

Peter14Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
angles 3 and (not given) could vary. the sum just has to be 280.
 one year ago

Peter14Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
sure, let's go with your question. yes, angle 1 = angle 2 and angle 4= angle 5.

dw:1366885812169:dw so what about its angles?
 one year ago

mayankdevnaniBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
angle 1=angle2 and angle4=angle 5

what exactly are you trying to prove here?

mayankdevnaniBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
that adjacent angles are equal

its difficult to force this into a kite shape

@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.

Peter14Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
(shrug) It doesn't really matter to me. I've already taken geometry.
 one year ago

perlBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
it 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
 one year ago

perlBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
for instance a square is a kite
 one year ago

perlBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
it should say, a kite has at least one pair of congruent angles
