Today we will understand the properties of Rhombuses, Rectangles and Squares And By the end of class, you will be able to find lengths and angles in rhombuses, rectangles and squares as well as determine if a quadrilateral is a rectangle, rhombus or square. Notes Rhombuses, Rectangles, and Squares rhombus – rectangle – square – Examples 1. For any rhombus QRST, decide whether the statement is always or sometimes true. a. Q S b. Q R 2. Classify the special quadrilateral. Explain your reasoning. A parallelogram is a rhombus if and only if… (properties of a rhombus) - its diagonals are perpendicular 70 - each diagonal bisects a pair of opposite angles A parallelogram is a rectangle if and only if… (properties of a rectangle) - its diagonals are congruent More examples Classify the special quadrilateral. Then find the values of x and y. 3. 4. K B y+ 8 4y + 5 L 3y 104 x + 31 A x 5x - 9 C J M 2y + 35 D 5. Q R 6. E 5x y+ 3 10 2y P F (5x - 6) 2y + 1 (4x + 7) S (3x + 18) H G
