Review Exercises Using the information from Review Exercise 16, determine which diagonal ( M O - or P N - ) would be longer. Exercise 16: Given: ▱ M N O P m ∠ M = 4 x m ∠ O = 2 x + 50 Find:   m ∠ M   and   m ∠ P To determine

To Find:

The longest diagonal of the parallelogram MNOP.

Explanation

Properties Used:

1. Two consecutive angles of a parallelogram are supplementary.

2. The opposite angles of a parallelogram are congruent.

3. In a parallelogram with unequal pairs of consecutive angles, the longer diagonal lies opposite the obtuse angle.

Calculation:

It is given that MNOP is a parallelogram with mM=4x and mO=2x+50.

In the parallelogram MNOP, M and O are opposite angles.

By the property ‘opposite angles of a parallelogram are congruent’, mM=mO.

4x=2x+50

2x=50

x=25°

Substituting the value of x in measure of angle M,

mM=4x=425=100°

In the parallelogram MNOP, mM and mP are consecutive angles
