 Question 256982: In segment ABCD,(which is shaped like a rhombus) angle A is greater than angle D. AB is greater than DC. Prove that AB is not parallel to DC. I have tried many ways to answer this problem, and my most reasonable solution was the hinge theorem since we have recently learned this. I have to write an indirect proof, and I dont even know how to solve this problem. Oh, and on the rhombus, angle A is in the top left and angle D is in the bottom right. And B is on the top right and C is on the bottom left. There is a line going from B to C, dividing the rhombus into two triangles. Please help! Click here to see answer by MRperkins(300)
