In quadrilateral $$ABCD$$ , $$AB = CD$$ and $$BC = AD$$ . If $$\angle CBD = 30$$ degrees and $$\angle BAD = 80$$ degrees, what is the value of $$\angle ADC$$ ?

(C) 2008 GMAT Club - m24#8

* 30 degrees
* 50 degrees
* 70 degrees
* 100 degrees
* 120 degrees

Because $$AB = CD$$ and $$BC = AD$$ , $$ABCD$$ is a parallelogram. $$\angle ADC = \angle BDA + \angle BDC = \angle CBD + \angle ABD = \angle CBD + (180 - \angle BAD - \angle BDA) = 30 + (180 - 80 - 30) = 100$$

Can we conclusively say that a quadrilateral whose opposite sides are equal will always be a parallelogram? Don't we need to know if the opposite sides are parallel as well to determine if it is a parallelogram? I can't think of any other scenario than parallelogram but want to confirm.

IMO, if opposite sides of a quadrilateral are equal we can safely assume that it is a parallelogram.
