    Determining a shape from length/slope

    In ABCD, there are two pairs of sidelengths (12 and 15) and two pairs of slopes (1/4 and 2). What shape would this be? What if the sides are all equal (4) and there are two pairs of slopes (-5 and 3), what would the shape be then?

    Determining shapes based on these things is really the only thing from my class that has me stumped.

    I recommend you look up the definition of a parallelogram and a rhombus.
