Square

A square is a quadrilateral with four right angles and four congruent sides. In the exercises, you will show that a square is a parallelogram, a rectangle, and a rhombus. So a square has the properties of all three.

Properties

All base angles are congruent.
Both pairs of opposite sides are congruent.
Both pairs of opposite sides are parallel to each other.
Diagonals are perpendicular.
Diagonals are congruent.
Both pairs of opposite angles are congruent.
Diagonals bisect the angles.
Diagonals form two isosceles triangles.
All angles are congruent.
All sides are congruent.
Diagonals bisect each other.

Trapazoid

A trapezoid is a quadrilateral with exactly one pair of parallel sides. Each of the parallel sides is called a base . The nonparallel sides are called legs . Base angles of a trapezoid are two consecutive angles whose common side is a base. If the legs of a trapezoid are congruent, the trapezoid is an isosceles trapezoid. The following theorems state the properties of an isosceles trapezoid.

Properties

· Exactly one pair of opposite sides parallel.

· Exactly one pair of opposite sides congruent.

· Base angles are congruent.

· Diagonals are congruent.

Rhombus

A rhombus is another special quadrilateral. A rhombus is a quadrilateral with four congruent sides.


Like a rectangle, a rhombus is a parallelogram. So you can apply the properties of parallelograms to rhombuses.

Properties

Both pairs of opposite sides parallel.

· Both pairs of opposite sides congruent.

· All sides congruent.

· Diagonal forms 2 congruent triangles.

· Diagonal forms 2 congruent isosceles triangles.

· Diagonals bisect the opposite angles.

· Diagonals are perpendicular.

· Diagonals bisect each other.
