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
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.
Now that we've explained the basic concept of squares in geometry, let's scroll down to work on specific geometry problems relating to this topic.
