In a parallelogram ABCD, prove that the sum of any two consecutive angles is 180o.

ABCD is a parallelogram, therefore AD||BC
Now, AD||BC and transversal AB intersects them
A + B = 180o (sum of interior angles on the same side of transversal)
Similarly you can prove that
B + C = 180o, C + D = 180o and D + A = 180o
