PROPERTY: Sum of the two adjacent angles in a parallelogram = 180º

angle p = 4* angle q

and p+q = 180

so 4q+q = 180

i.e q = 36º
and p = 4*36 = 144º

In a parallelogram, the consecutive angles are supplementary
i.e. In Parallelogram PQRS, P + Q = 180

Let angle Q be x.
As P is 4 times angle Q, angle P = 4x

Substituting the values of P and Q, $$4x + x = 5x = 180$$ ->$$x = \frac{180}{5} = 36$$

Therefore, the measure of angle P is $$4x$$ = 144 (Option D)

We may recall that consecutive angles of a parallelogram sum to 180; thus:

4n + n = 180

5n = 180

n = 36

So angle P is 4 x 36 = 144 degrees.
