Q:
# What Are Consecutive Sides?

**Consecutive sides are any two sides that meet at an endpoint or an angle.** Recognizing consecutive sides is important for many functions in geometry, as it helps identify segments and angles.

For example, a parallelogram has four sides and four angles. If it is assumed that each angle is named in a clockwise fashion with the letters A, B, C and D, the shape can be named ABCD, for the purpose of formulating and solving geometric equations. Each side can then be identified by its two endpoints: AB, BC, CD and DA, moving clockwise around the parallelogram. The sets of consecutive sides for this shape would be AB and BC, BC and CD, CD and DA and DA and AB.
