    Hello, blame_canada100!

    Al says: "If <a <b <c <d is a parallelogram, then ABCD is a rhombus".
    Sketch a quadrillateral ABCD that shows that Al's statement is not always true.
    The sketch must show the length of each side & the measure of each angle
    of the quadrilateral you draw. Explain.

    A rhombus has four equal sides.


    We have parallelogram ABCD
    Code:
              A       8       B
              * - - - - - - - *
             / 120       60/
          3 /               / 3
           /60*        120*/
          * - - - - - - - *
          D       8       C
    but it does not have four equal sides.


    It is not a rhombus. .Al is wrong . . .
