Diagonals have special properties in the rectangle and rhombus.
Recall: Rhombus:
Rectangle:
If a parallelogram is:
A rhombus
Each diagonal bisects two
angles
m1  m2 and m3  m4
A rhombus
The diagonals are
perpendicular
BD  AC
A rectangle
The diagonals are
congruent
AC = BD
Guided Problem Solving
Given the rectangle to the right,
Find the missing angles.
Property
Conclusion
4 is supplementary to ___________
m4 = 180 - ______ =______
The diagonals of a rectangle are ______________
_________ = _________
The diagonals of a parallelogram ________________ each other.
BM = ___________
And AM=______
The bisected segments are congruent
BM = _____
BMC is an isosceles triangle, so by the Isosceles Triangle Theorem.
(use this theorem for any rectangle)
Triangle Angle Sum, m1  m2  40  180
3 and 2 are complementary
m1  m _________
m1  m2  ______
m3  90  _____
Note: Parallelogram -&gt; bisects ___________ and Rectangle -&gt; has congruent ___________
Therefore, the segments of the diagonal are _____________________ to each other.
