Theorem 8.8 A quadrilateral is a parallelogram if a pair of opposite sides is equal and parallel. Given : ABCD is a quadrilateral where AB ∥ CD & AB = CD To Prove : ABCD is a Parallelogram Proof : Given AB ∥ CD with transversal AC. ∠BAC = ∠DCA In Δ ADC & Δ CBA AB = CD ∠BAC = ∠DCA AC = CA ∴ Δ ADC ≅ Δ CBA Hence, DA = BC Thus, In ABCD, Both pairs of opposite sides are equal ∴ ABCD is a Parallelogram. Hence proved
