# Can any two triangles be joined to make a rhombus?

No.

A rhombus has all four sides of equal length.

To split a rhombus into only 2 triangles, it must be split along a diagonal; which means that 2 of the sides of one of the triangles must be the same length as the sides of the rhombus, which being equal mean the triangles must be (at least) isosceles - scalene triangles will not work.

Further, as the diagonal will be a common length to each of the triangles (the length of their third sides), it will form the base (ie the side opposite the vertex between the sides of equal length) of the isosceles triangles, and so the triangles must be to congruent isosceles triangles.

If the diagonal has the same length as the side of the rhombus, then the two congruent triangles will be congruent equilateral triangles.

No, two scalene triangles, for example, can never make a rhombus..

### Do any two triangles can be joined to make a rhombus?

yes it can because if you put the triangles on top of each other then that will maske a rhombus so the answer is YES

### Can any 2 triangles can be joined to make a rhombus?

Yes,put a triangle on a flat surfaceput another triangle underneath the other triangle and look at itit makes a rhombus but you have to turn it side waysRHOMBUS

### Can any 2 triangles can be joined to make a rombous?

Yes. It's easiest to see how by working backwards. Draw a rhombus, then draw a line between two opposite corners. Poof! You have two triangles.

### What does a square based pyramid look like?

the base is a 2-d square with joined triangles, meeting together to make a corner at the top, the triangles height can be any height, or the square can be any size

### Is a regular pentagon made up of 5 isosceles triangles?

It can be, if all the vertices of the pentagon are joined to its centre. But if they are joined to any other point, it will not be.

### What quadrilaterlas Diagonals Form 2 Pairs Of Isoceles Triangles?

Parallelograms of any form, a square, a rectangle, and a rhombus are just special parallelograms so all will form 2 pairs of isosceles triangles when a diagonal is drawn.
