    Check the angles to see if they are 90 degrees. Opposite sides in parallelogram share the same length as well.

    AB = sqr root (5-3)^2 + (-2+5)^2 = sqr root 13 BC = sqr root(10-5)^2 + (-4+2)^2= sqr root 29 CD= sqr root(8-10)^2 + ((-7+4)^2 = sqr root 13 DA = sqr root(3-8)^2 + (-5+7)^2 = sqr root 29 ABCD is paralellogram
