True or False. A quadrilateral with these following vertices is a parallelogram.
(-4,-3),(2,-3),(4,-6),(-4,-6)

  • Math -

    Calling the points ABCD,

    slope of AB = 0
    slope of CD = 0 so AB || CD

    slope of BC = -3/2
    AD is vertical
    so BD not || to AD

    no parallelogram - it is, however, a trapezoid.
