Quadrilateral Sum Conjecture
The sum of the measures of the four angles of any
quadrilateral is 360°. (Lesson 5.1)
Pentagon Sum Conjecture
The sum of the measures of the five angles of any pentagon is 540°. (Lesson 5.1)
Polygon Sum Conjecture
The sum of the measures of the n interior angles of an n-gon is 180°(n - 2). (Lesson 5.1)
Exterior Angle Sum Conjecture
For any polygon, the sum of the measures of a set of exterior angles is 360°. (Lesson 5.2)
Equiangular Polygon Conjecture
You can find the measure of each interior angle of an equiangular n-gon by using either of these formulas: 180 - (360/n) or (180(n - 2))/n. (Lesson 5.2)
360°

Parallelogram Diagonals Conjecture
The diagonals of a parallelogram bisect each other. (Lesson 5.5)
Double-Edged Straightedge Conjecture
If two parallel lines are intersected by a second pair of parallel lines that are the same distance apart as the first pair, then the parallelogram formed is a rhombus. (Lesson 5.6)
Rhombus Diagonals Conjecture
