Examine the arrow diagram below.  

Polygon is a parallelogramarea of the polygon equals base times height.

Add an “if”, “then”, and a comma in the correct places

  1. Write this conjecture as a conditional (“If, then”) statement.

    If a polygon is a parallelogram, then its area equals its base times its height.

  2. Write a similar conjecture about triangles, both as a conditional statement and as an arrow diagram.

    If a polygon is a triangle, then its area equals one half its base times its height.
