# 6.2 Properties of Parallelograms ```6.2 Properties of Parallelograms
OBJECTIVE: To discover properties of parallelograms
Use parallel lines (If lines are parallel, same-side interior angles are ________________________ )
to find the missing angles in the parallelogram below:
C-28: The consecutive angles in a parallelogram are _________________________.
C-29: The opposite angles in a parallelogram are _________________________.
Example 1: Find the value of x in parallelogram ABCD. Then find mA.
Investigation: Determine which triangles are congruent. What do you notice about point T?
∆𝐵𝑇𝐶 ≅ ∆____________ by _________
∆𝐴𝐵𝑇 ≅ ∆____________ by _________
̅̅̅̅ ≅ ______________ by _______________.
̅̅̅̅ ≅ ______________ and 𝑇𝐶
So 𝐵𝑇

So T is a ________________ of ___________ and ___________.
C-30: The diagonals of a parallelogram _______________each other.
Example 2: Find the values of x and y in parallelogram KLMN.
