```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

(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
