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.

Ex. 1: Describing a special parallelogram
• Decide whether the statement is always, sometimes, or never true.
• A rhombus is a rectangle.

The statement is sometimes true. In the Venn diagram, the regions for rhombuses and rectangles overlap. IF the rhombus is a square, it is a rectangle.

• Decide whether the statement is always, sometimes, or never true.
• 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.
• 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.

U.E.Q

What are the properties of different quadrilaterals? How do we use the formulas of areas of different quadrilaterals to solve real-life problems?

E.Q

What are some properties of trapezoids and kits?

Objectives:
• 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 trapezoids
Theorem 6.14

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

A ≅ B, C ≅ D

Trapezoid Theorems
Theorem 6.15

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

ABCD is an isosceles trapezoid

Trapezoid Theorems
Theorem 6.16

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

ABCD is isosceles if and only if AC ≅ BD.

Trapezoid Theorems
The 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 trapezoid
The midsegment of a trapezoid is parallel to each base and its length is one half the sums of the lengths of the bases.

MN = ½ (AD + BC)

Theorem 6.17: Midsegment of a trapezoid
LAYER CAKE 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 trapezoids
A kite is a quadrilateral that has two pairs of consecutive congruent sides, but opposite sides are not congruent. Using properties of kites
Theorem 6.18

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

AC  BD

Kite theorems
Theorem 6.19

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

A ≅ C, B ≅ D

Kite theorems
WXYZ 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 kite
Ex. 5: Angles of a kite
• Find mG and mJ

in the diagram at the

right.

SOLUTION:

GHJK is a kite, so G ≅ J and mG = mJ.

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

2(mG) = 168°Simplify

mG = 84° Divide each side by 2.

So, mJ = mG = 84°

132°
