**How do you find the diagonal of a parallelogram?**

Explanation: In a parallelogram, the diagonals bisect each other, so you can set the labeled segments equal to one another and then solve for . \displaystyle 20 – 3x = 2x – 4 \rightarrow 24 = 5x \rightarrow 4.8 = x. Then, substitute 4.8 for in each labeled segment to get a total of 11.2 for the diagonal length.
