triangle SVX is congruent to triangle UTX

[the figure has a V on the top left corner, U on the top

right corner, X in the middle of four triangles inside

and S on the bottom left and T on the bottom right]

prove VUTS is a parallelogram

Thank You, I appreciate it! :) =) ^_^

for convenience call angle SVX=UTX = A

but then VXT is a straight line (opposite interior equal angles A cutting parallel lines SV and UT)

similarly line SXU is a straight line.

then we know angle SXV = TXU = C

then C + angle VXU = C + angle SXT = 180

so

angle VXU = angle SXT and those triangles are congruent (SAS)

That means for example angle UVX =STX

and therefore angle SVU = STU

therefore parallelogram (opposite angles equal)
