Activator

Test your prior knowledge and try to fill in the chart with properties of the following quadrilaterals:

Objectives:

Use properties of sides and angles of rhombuses, rectangles, and squares.

Use properties of diagonals of rhombuses, rectangles and squares.

E.Q

What are properties of sides and angles of rhombuses, rectangles, and squares?

Properties of Special Parallelograms

A rectangle is a parallelogram with four right angles.

A rhombus is a parallelogram

with four congruent sides

A square is a parallelogram with four congruent sides and four right angles.

In this lesson, you will study three special types of parallelograms: rhombuses, rectangles and squares.

Venn Diagram shows relationships-- MEMORIZE

- Each shape has the properties of every group that it belongs to. For instance, a square is a rectangle, a rhombus and a parallelogram; so it has all of the properties of those shapes.

- A parallelogram is a rectangle.
The statement is sometimes true. Some parallelograms are rectangles. In the Venn diagram, you can see that some of the shapes in the parallelogram box are in the area for rectangles, but many aren’t.

Ex. 2: Using properties of special parallelograms

- ABCD is a rectangle. What else do you know about ABCD?

- Because ABCD is a rectangle, it has four right angles by definition. The definition also states that rectangles are parallelograms, so ABCD has all the properties of a parallelogram:
- Opposite sides are parallel and congruent.
- Opposite angles are congruent and consecutive angles are supplementary.
- Diagonals bisect each other.

Take note:

- A rectangle is defined as a parallelogram with four right angles. But any quadrilateral with four right angles is a rectangle because any quadrilateral with four right angles is a parallelogram.
- Corollaries about special quadrilaterals:
- Rhombus Corollary: A quadrilateral is a rhombus if and only if it has four congruent sides.
- Rectangle Corollary: A quadrilateral is a rectangle if and only if it has four right angles.
- Square Corollary: A quadrilateral is a square if and only if it is a rhombus and a rectangle.
- You can use these to prove that a quadrilateral is a rhombus, rectangle or square without proving first that the quadrilateral is a parallelogram.

Ex. 3: Using properties of a Rhombus

In the diagram at the right,

PQRS is a rhombus. What

is the value of y?

All four sides of a rhombus are ≅, so RS = PS.

5y – 6 = 2y + 3 Equate lengths of ≅ sides.

5y = 2y + 9 Add 6 to each side.

3y = 9 Subtract 2y from each side.

y = 3 Divide each side by 3.

Using diagonals of special parallelograms

- The following theorems are about diagonals of rhombuses and rectangles.
- Theorem 6.11: A parallelogram is a rhombus if and only if its diagonals are perpendicular.
- ABCD is a rhombus if and only if AC BD.

Using diagonals of special parallelograms

- Theorem 6.12: A parallelogram is a rhombus if and only if each diagonal bisects a pair of opposite angles.
- ABCD is a rhombus if and only if AC bisects DAB and BCD and BD bisects ADC and CBA.

NOTE:

You can rewrite Theorem 6.11 as a conditional statement and its converse.

Conditional statement: If the diagonals of a parallelogram are perpendicular, then the parallelogram is a rhombus.

Converse: If a parallelogram is a rhombus, then its diagonals are perpendicular.

Ex. 5: Coordinate Proof of Theorem 6.11Given: ABCD is a parallelogram, AC BD.Prove: ABCD is a rhombus

- Assign coordinates. Because AC BD, place ABCD in the coordinate plane so AC and BD lie on the axes and their intersection is at the origin.
- Let (0, a) be the coordinates of A, and let (b, 0) be the coordinates of B.
- Because ABCD is a parallelogram, the diagonals bisect each other and OA = OC. So, the coordinates of C are (0, - a). Similarly the coordinates of D are (- b, 0).

A(0, a)

D(- b, 0)

B(b, 0)

C(0, - a)

Ex. 5: Coordinate Proof of Theorem 6.11Given: ABCD is a parallelogram, AC BD.Prove: ABCD is a rhombus

- Find the lengths of the sides of ABCD. Use the distance formula (See – you’re never going to get rid of this)
AB=√(b – 0)2 + (0 – a)2 = √b2 + a2

- BC= √(0 - b)2 + (– a - 0)2 = √b2 + a2
- CD= √(- b – 0)2 + [0 - (– a)]2 = √b2 + a2
- DA= √[(0 – (- b)]2 + (a – 0)2 = √b2 + a2

A(0, a)

D(- b, 0)

B(b, 0)

C(0, - a)

All the side lengths are equal, so ABCD is a rhombus.

E.Q seem to fit into the door jamb properly. What could you do to determine if your new door is rectangular?

What are some properties of trapezoids and kits?

Objectives: seem to fit into the door jamb properly. What could you do to determine if your new door is rectangular?

- Use properties of trapezoids.
- Use properties of kites.

A trapezoid is a quadrilateral with exactly one pair of parallel sides. The parallel sides are the bases. A trapezoid has two pairs of base angles. For instance in trapezoid ABCD D and C are one pair of base angles. The other pair is A and B. The nonparallel sides are the legs of the trapezoid.

Using properties of trapezoidsIf the legs of a trapezoid are congruent, then the trapezoid is an isosceles trapezoid.

Using properties of trapezoidsTheorem 6.14 is an isosceles trapezoid.

If a trapezoid is isosceles, then each pair of base angles is congruent.

A ≅ B, C ≅ D

Trapezoid TheoremsTheorem 6.15 is an isosceles trapezoid.

If a trapezoid has a pair of congruent base angles, then it is an isosceles trapezoid.

ABCD is an isosceles trapezoid

Trapezoid TheoremsTheorem 6.16 is an isosceles trapezoid.

A trapezoid is isosceles if and only if its diagonals are congruent.

ABCD is isosceles if and only if AC ≅ BD.

Trapezoid TheoremsThe midsegment of a trapezoid is the segment that connects the midpoints of its legs. Theorem 6.17 is similar to the Midsegment Theorem for triangles.

Midsegment of a trapezoidThe midsegment of a trapezoid is parallel to each base and its length is one half the sums of the lengths of the bases.

MN║AD, MN║BC

MN = ½ (AD + BC)

Theorem 6.17: Midsegment of a trapezoidLAYER CAKE its length is one half the sums of the lengths of the bases. A baker is making a cake like the one at the right. The top layer has a diameter of 8 inches and the bottom layer has a diameter of 20 inches. How big should the middle layer be?

Ex. 3: Finding Midsegment lengths of trapezoidsUse the midsegment theorem for trapezoids. its length is one half the sums of the lengths of the bases.

DG = ½(EF + CH)=

A kite is a quadrilateral that has two pairs of consecutive congruent sides, but opposite sides are not congruent.

Using properties of kitesTheorem 6.18 congruent sides, but opposite sides are not congruent.

If a quadrilateral is a kite, then its diagonals are perpendicular.

Kite theoremsTheorem 6.19 congruent sides, but opposite sides are not congruent.

If a quadrilateral is a kite, then exactly one pair of opposite angles is congruent.

A ≅ C, B ≅ D

Kite theoremsWXYZ is a kite so the diagonals are perpendicular. You can use the Pythagorean Theorem to find the side lengths.

WX = √202 + 122≈ 23.32

XY = √122 + 122≈ 16.97

Because WXYZ is a kite, WZ = WX ≈ 23.32, and ZY = XY ≈ 16.97

Ex. 4: Using the diagonals of a kiteEx. 5: Angles of a kite use the Pythagorean Theorem to find the side lengths.

- Find mG and mJ

SOLUTION:

GHJK is a kite, so G ≅ J and mG = mJ.

2(mG) + 132° + 60° = 360°Sum of measures of int. s of a quad. is 360°

2(mG) = 168°Simplify

mG = 84° Divide each side by 2.

So, mJ = mG = 84°

How do we simplify real life tasks, checking if an object is rectangular, rhombus, trapezoid, kite or other quadrilateral?

- Quadrilateral ABCD has at least one pair of opposite sides congruent. What kinds of quadrilaterals meet this condition?

Rhombus

Opposites sides are ≅.

All sides are congruent.

Opposite sides are congruent.

Legs are congruent.

All sides are congruent.

When you join the midpoints of the sides of any quadrilateral, what special quadrilateral is formed? Why?

Ex. 2: Connecting midpoints of sidesSolution: Let E, F, G, and H be the midpoints of the sides of any quadrilateral, ABCD as shown.

If you draw AC, the Midsegment Theorem for triangles says that FG║AC and EG║AC, so FG║EH. Similar reasoning shows that EF║HG.

So by definition, EFGH is a parallelogram.

Ex. 2: Connecting midpoints of sidesProof with Special Quadrilaterals of any quadrilateral, ABCD as shown.

- When you want to prove that a quadrilateral has a specific shape, you can use either the definition of the shape as in example 2 or you can use a theorem.

Proving Quadrilaterals are Rhombuses of any quadrilateral, ABCD as shown.

You have learned 3 ways to prove that a quadrilateral is a rhombus.

- You can use the definition and show that the quadrilateral is a parallelogram that has four congruent sides. It is easier, however, to use the Rhombus Corollary and simply show that all four sides of the quadrilateral are congruent.
- Show that the quadrilateral is a parallelogram and that the diagonals are perpendicular (Thm. 6.11)
- Show that the quadrilateral is a parallelogram and that each diagonal bisects a pair of opposite angles. (Thm 6.12)

Show KLMN is a rhombus of any quadrilateral, ABCD as shown.

Solution: You can use any of the three ways described in the concept summary above. For instance, you could show that opposite sides have the same slope and that the diagonals are perpendicular. Another way shown in the next slide is to prove that all four sides have the same length.

AHA – DISTANCE FORMULA If you want, look on pg. 365 for the whole explanation of the distance formula

So, because LM=NK=MN=KL, KLMN is a rhombus.

Because you are given information about diagonals, show that ABCD is a parallelogram with congruent diagonals.

First prove that ABCD is a parallelogram.

Because BN ≅ DN and AN ≅ CN, BD and AC bisect each other. Because the diagonals of ABCD bisect each other, ABCD is a parallelogram.

Then prove that the diagonals of ABCD are congruent.

From the given you can write BN = AN and DN = CN so, by the addition property of Equality, BN + DN = AN + CN. By the Segment Addition Postulate, BD = BN + DN and AC = AN + CN so, by substitution, BD = AC.

So, BD ≅ AC.

ABCD is a parallelogram with congruent diagonals, so ABCD is a rectangle.

Given: AN ≅ BN ≅ CN ≅ DNProve: ABCD is a rectangle.
