**Special Quadrilaterals**

Honors Geometry

2
True/False Every square is a rhombus.

3
**TRUE – four congruent sides**

4
True/False If the diagonals of a quadrilateral are perpendicular, then it is a rhombus.

5
**False – diagonals don’t have to be congruent or bisect each other.**

6
True/False The diagonals of a rectangle bisect its angles.

7
**FALSE (draw an EXTREME rectangle!)**

8
True/False A kite with all consecutive angles congruent must be a square.

9
TRUE

10
True/False Diagonals of trapezoids are congruent.

11
FALSE – not always!

12
**A parallelogram with congruent diagonals must be a rectangle.**

True/False A parallelogram with congruent diagonals must be a rectangle.

13
TRUE

14
True/False Some rhombuses are rectangles.

15
**True – some rhombuses also have right angles**

16
True/False The diagonals of a rhombus are congruent.

17
False – not always!

18
True/False If the diagonals of a parallelogram are perpendicular, it must be a rhombus.

19
TRUE

20
True/False Diagonals of a parallelogram bisect the angles.

21
FALSE

22
True/False A quadrilateral that has diagonals that bisect and are perpendicular must be a square.

23
**FALSE (could be rhombus… right angles not guaranteed)**

24
**Sometimes/Always/Never**

A kite with congruent diagonals is a square.

25
**FALSE – could be, but diagonals don’t have to bisect each other.**

26
**Give the most descriptive name:**

A parallelogram with a right angle must be what kind of shape?

27
Rectangle

28
**Give the most descriptive name:**

A rectangle with perpendicular diagonals must be what kind of shape?

29
SQUARE

30
**Give the most descriptive name**

A rhombus with consecutive angles congruent must be a:

31
SQUARE

32
**Give the most descriptive name:**

A parallelogram with diagonals that bisect its angles must be a:

33
Rhombus

34
**Proving that a Quad is a Rectangle**

If a parallelogram contains at least one right angle, then it is a rectangle. If the diagonals of a parallelogram are congruent, then the parallelogram is a rectangle. If all four angles of a quadrilateral are right angles, then it is a rectangle.

35
**Proving that a Quad is a Kite**

If two disjoint pairs of consecutive sides of a quadrilateral are congruent, then it is a kite. If one of the diagonals of a quadrilateral is the perpendicular bisector of the other diagonal, then it is a kite.

36
**Proving that a Quad is a Rhombus**

If a parallelogram contains a pair of consecutive sides that are congruent, then it is a rhombus. If either diagonal of a parallelogram bisects two angles of the parallelogram, then it is a rhombus. If the diagonals of a quadrilateral are perpendicular bisectors of each other, then the quadrilateral is a rhombus.

37
**Proving that a Quad is a Square**

If a quadrilateral is both a rectangle and a rhombus, then it is a square.

38
**Proving that a Trapezoid is Isosceles**

If the non-parallel sides of a trapezoid are congruent, then it is isosceles. If the lower or upper base angles of a trapezoid are congruent, then it is isosceles. If the diagonals of a trapezoid are congruent, then it is isosceles.
