Answer:idk bruh I’m just doing this because I have to

Answer:Let the angles of the quadrilateral in degrees be =2a,3a,4a and a

Since the sum of angles of a quadrilateral =360

o

,

2a+3a+4a+a=360

10a=360 o

a=36

So,

the angles of the quadrilateral are =2a=72 o

,3a=108 o

,4a=144

o and a=36

Suppose ∠A=72 o

and ∠B=108 o

Sum of ∠A and ∠B=72 o

+108 o

=180 o

This means, AB is a transversal to the parallel sides AD and BC as the sum of

interior angles on the same side of transversal is 180

o

Hence, AD∥BC and ABCD is a trapezium.
