#### Transcript MYP7 Area of Quadrilaterals

```A quadrilateral is a four-sided plane.
A parallelogram is a four-sided plane that meets the following
criteria:
Opposite sides are parallel
Opposite sides are congruent
Opposite angles are congruent
Consecutive angles are supplementary
Diagonals bisect each other
Squares
Rectangles
Rhombuses
Theorem 6.21:
The area of a parallelogram is the product of base and its
corresponding height.
A=(8)(4)
