# Famous Polygons in GEOMETRY

3 types:

RHOMBUS

RECTANGLE

SQUARE

## RHOMBUS INFO

A Rhombus has 4 Congruent sides

## RECTANGLE INFO

Rectangle has 4 congruent angles and does not have congruent sides.

## SQUARE INFO

A square is a parallelogram that has congruent sides and angles.

## Steps

1) measure of angle 1 is 90 because of right angle

2) measure of angle 2 is 58 because of alt. interior

3) measure of angle 3 is 58 because opposite angles are congruent.

4) measure of angle 4 is 32 because of adding measurement of angles 1, 2, and 3 and subtracting from 180 because a triangle is equal to 180.

## PROPERTIES

If a parallelogram is a rhombus, then the diagonals are bisecting each other.

If a parallelogram is a rectangle, then it has 4 right angles.

if a parallelogram is a square, then it has 4 congruent sides and right angle (4)

## Similiarities and Differences

Similarities: Both are Trapezoids, and have base angles, and legs.

Difference: Trapezoid only has ONLY 1 pair of parallel sides. Isosceles Trapezoid has diagonals that are congruent.

## PURSE TRAPEZOID

This trapezoid in real life purse has 1 pair of congruent sides.

The angles across each other are congruent, but when opposite, the angles diagonal are not congruent.

## Suitcase

This suitcase in a shape of trapezoid has 1 parallel side and the sides of the suitcase are congruent.

## Stained Glass

The stained glass has 1 congruent pairs and that the right side is congruent.

## Crate

The crate top is congruent.

## Steps

1) write formula QR=1/2 (LM+N)

2) use reciprocal of 1/2 to 2 and multiply with x and PURENTHESIES stays the same.

3) combine like terms and solve for x.

## Steps

1) find angles that are congruent.

2) congruent angles are angle D and angle E are congruent. Angle C and Angle F are congruent.

3) solve and find the other measurements

4) angle C and angle F are congruent. Both are 65

5) subtract 180 from 65. Angle D and angle E are congruent and equal to 115

## Example

This Kite has 3 separated shape-like kites and all three are congruent.

## Example 2

These two kites has the congruent angles.

## Steps

1) measurement of angle 1 is 90 because right angle

2) measurement of angle 3 is 52 because congruent angle to 52

3) measurement of angle 2 is 38. Add measurement of angles 1 and 3 and subtract 180.
