# Congruence for Quadrilaterals

##### Problem 1

1) Select **all** quadrilaterals that have 180 degree rotational symmetry. Write each corresponding letter in the answer box and separate letters with commas.

a) trapezoid b) isosceles trapezoid c) parallelogram d) rhombus e) rectangle f) square

##### Problem 2

Lin wrote a proof to show that diagonal $EG$ is a line of symmetry for rhombus $EFGH$. Fill in the blanks to complete her proof:

Because $EFGH$ is a rhombus, the distance from $E$ to __ 1 __ is the same as the distance from $E$ to __ 2 __. Since $E$ is the same distance from __ 3 __ as it is from __ 4 __, it must lie on the perpendicular bisector of segment __ 5 __. By the same reasoning, $G$ must lie on the perpendicular bisector of __ 6 __. Therefore, line __ 7 __ is the perpendicular bisector of segment $FH$. So reflecting rhombus $EFGH$ across line __ 8 __ will take $E$ to __ 9 __ and $G$ to __ 10 __ (because $E$ and $G$ are on the line of reflection) and $F$ to __ 11 __ and $H$ to __ 12 __ (since $FH$ is perpendicular to the line of reflection, and $F$ and $H$ are the same distance from the line of reflection, on opposite sides). Since the image of rhombus $EFGH$ reflected across $EG$ is rhombus $EHGF$ (the same rhombus!), line $EF$ must be a line of symmetry for rhombus $EFGH$.

##### Problem 3

In quadrilateral $ABCD$, $AD$ is congruent to $BC$, and $AD$ is parallel to $BC$. Andre has written a proof to show that $ABCD$ is a parallelogram. Fill in the blanks to complete the proof.

Since $AD$ is parallel to __ 1 __, alternate interior angles __ 2 __ and __ 3 __ are congruent. $AC$ is congruent to __ 4 __ since segments are congruent to themselves. Along with the given information that $AD$ is congruent to $BC$, triangle $ADC$ is congruent to__ 5 __ by the __ 6 __ Triangle Congruence. Since the triangles are congruent, all pairs of corresponding angles are congruent, so angle $DCA$ is congruent to __ 7 __. Since those alternate interior angles are congruent, $AB$ must be parallel to __ 8 __. Since we define a parallelogram as a quadrilateral with both pairs of opposite sides parallel, $ABCD$ is a parallelogram.
