The figure below shows a quadrilateral ABCD. Sides AB and DC are congruent and parallel: A quadrilateral ABCD is shown with the opposite sides AB and DC shown parallel and equal A student wrote the following sentences to prove that quadrilateral ABCD is a parallelogram: Side AB is parallel to side DC so the alternate interior angles, angle ABD and angle BDC, are congruent. Side AB is equal to side DC and DB is the side common to triangles ABD and BCD. Therefore, the triangles ABD and CDB are congruent by ________. By CPCTC, angles DBC and ADB are congruent and sides AD and BC are co
