Summary of ways to prove a quadrilateral is a parallelogram:
To prove that a quadrilateral is a parallelogram, prove any one of the following statements is true:
1) Both pairs of opposite sides are parallel.
2) Both pairs of opposite sides are congruent.
3) One pair of opposite sides are both congruent and parallel.
4) The diagonals bisect each other.
5) Both pairs of opposite angles are congruent.
