Just like rectangles are a special type of parallelogram, squares are a special type of rectangles, in which all the sides are equal. Or you can think of it as a special type of rhombus (diamond) in … [Read more...] about The Diagonals of Squares are Perpendicular to Each Other

# Squares

A rectangle in which all the sides are equal, or a rhombus in which the angles are right angles, is called a square.

A square combines the properties of rectangles and diamonds.

So in a square, the diagonals are of equal length, they bisect each other, they bisect the angles, and they are perpendicular to each other

We will show these properties using triangle congruence.
