Which of the quadrilateral have diagonals that bisect the vertex angles?

A square has diagonals that split the angles into two 45-degree parts, thus bisecting them.

What shapes have diagonals bisect vertex angles?

Only a square and a rhombus will have all its diagonals bisecting vertices. In other shapes some - but not all - diagonals can bisect vertices.

Do any of the diagonals of a kite bisect the vertex?


Do all rectangles have diagonals which bisect?

It depends on what you mean by bisect. All rectangles have diagonals that bisect the other one. Only certain rectangles (Squares) have diagonals that bisect its vertex, the ninety degree angle.

What is a diagonal vertex of a square?

The diagonals of a square bisect each corner or vertex of the square.

Name the best classification for a parallelogram with perpendicular diagonals?

The best classification for a parallelogram that has perpendicular diagonals is a rhombus. A rhombus has four sides that are congruent. The also diagonals bisect the vertex angles of this type of parallelogram.

Prove that if the diagonal of a parallelogram does not bisect the angles through the vertices to which the diagonal is drawn the parallelogram is not a rhombus?

Suppose that the parallelogram is a rhombus (a parallelogram with equal sides). If we draw the diagonals, isosceles triangles are formed (where the median is also an angle bisector and perpendicular to the base). Since the diagonals of a parallelogram bisect each other, and the diagonals don't bisect the vertex angles where they are drawn, then the parallelogram is not a rhombus.

Does diagonals of right angled triangle bisect each other?

A diagonal is normally defined as a straight line joining a vertex of a polygon with any vertex other than an adjoining vertex (lines joining a vertex to an adjoining vertex would simply be a side of the polygon). Since a triangle has only got adjoining vertices, it has no diagonals. Since there are no diagonals, they cannot bisect one another.

What is same about a cube and a cuboid?

They have 8 vertices, 12 edges and 6 faces. All edges meet at right angles. All faces meet at right angles. Every face is a rectangle (a square is a rectangle). The three vertex-to-opposite-vertex diagonals meet at a point which is the centre of gravity. This point bisects the diagonals.

Construct two angles with one vertex?

Construct and angle and bisect it, that should do it.

Prove that a rhombus has congruent diagonals?

Since the diagonals of a rhombus are perpendicular between them, then in one forth part of the rhombus they form a right triangle where hypotenuse is the side of the rhombus, the base and the height are one half part of its diagonals. Let's take a look at this right triangle.The base and the height lengths could be congruent if and only if the angles opposite to them have a measure of 45⁰, which is impossible to a rhombus because these angles have different measures as they are one half of the two adjacent angles of the rhombus (the diagonals of a rhombus bisect the vertex angles from where they are drawn), which also have different measures (their sum is 180⁰ ).Therefore, the diagonals of a rhombus are not congruent as their one half are not (the diagonals of a rhombus bisect each other).
