If joining the midpoint of a rhombus forms a rectangle, what is the shape of the quadrilateral formed by joining midpoints of a rectangle? If you guessed it is a rhombus, you are correct, as we will … [Read more...] about Quadrilateral Formed by Joining Midpoints of a Rectangle
A parallelogram in which all the angles are right angles is called a rectangle.
Since a general property of all parallelograms is that all adjacent angles are supplementary (add up to 180°), it is obvious that if a parallelogram has one right angle (90°), then all the other angles are also 90°
In addition to the general properties of parallelograms, in a rectangle, the diagonals are of equal length,
We will show these properties using triangle congruence.
Now that we've explained the basic concept of rectangles in geometry, let's scroll down to work on specific geometry problems relating to this topic.
Rectangles are a special type of parallelogram. They have a special property that we will prove here: the diagonals of rectangles are equal in length. Rectangles are a special type of … [Read more...] about Diagonals of Rectangles are of Equal Length
