# What are consecutive congruent sides?

**consecutive sides**are

**congruent**(“disjoint pairs” means that one

**side**can't be used in both pairs).

Hereof, what are consecutive sides in a quadrilateral?

A **quadrilateral** is a polygon with four **sides**. to create a random **quadrilateral**! **Sides**, angles, and vertices that are next to each other in a polygon are called **consecutive**. (Note that **consecutive sides** intersect at a single point.)

Furthermore, what is a consecutive side? **Consecutive sides** are two **sides** of a polygon which share a common angle. We can see **consecutive sides** in any figure such as a triangle, rectangle,

Likewise, people ask, are consecutive sides of a parallelogram congruent?

THEOREM: If a quadrilateral is a **parallelogram**, it has 2 sets of **opposite** angles **congruent**. THEOREM: If a quadrilateral is a **parallelogram**, it has **consecutive** angles which are supplementary. THEOREM: If a quadrilateral has one set of **opposite sides** which are both **congruent** and parallel, then it is a **parallelogram**.

Can you draw a quadrilateral with one pair of congruent consecutive sides?

There is no specific word for quite this concept! A **quadrilateral with one pair** of parallel **sides** is a trapezoid. If it has two **pairs** of parallel **sides** it is a parallelogram, but parallelograms are also trapezoids in the same way that dogs are also mammals. A parallelogram has two **pairs of congruent sides**.
