A parallelogram has adjacent equal sides. Diagonals of a parallelogram bisect each other,Opposite sides of a parallelogram are parallel and will never intersect. The area of a parallelogram is twice the area of a triangle created by one of its diagonals. Any line through the midpoint of a parallelogram bisects the area.
