# Parallelograms

A quadrangle in which both pairs of opposite sides are parallel to each other is called a parallelogram.

The opposite sides of a parallelogram are equal in size to each other, and the opposite angles are equal - as we will show, using triangle congruence.

Other properties include:

- The diagonals of a parallelogram bisect each other
- Any two adjacent angles are supplementary
