# Can a rectangle and a kite be congruent?

Contents

Yes. A square is always a kite and a rectangle. A kite is a quadrilateral with two distinct pairs of adjacent congruent sides.

## Can a rectangle also be a kite?

Yes, always. Is a kite a rectangle? Sometimes (when it’s a square).

## Can a kite be congruent?

Kites have no parallel sides, but they do have congruent sides. Kites are defined by two pairs of congruent sides that are adjacent to each other, instead of opposite each other.

## What is the same about a kite and a rectangle?

Rectangles are a special type of isosceles trapezoid with opposite sides parallel and equal angles. Quadrilaterals have two diagonal lines. In a kite, the diagonal joining the ends forms a line of symmetry. In a rhombus, both diagonals form lines of symmetry.

## What is a quadrilateral that is both a kite and a rectangle?

Parallelogram: A quadrilateral that has two pairs of parallel sides. Rhombus: A quadrilateral with four congruent sides; a rhombus is both a kite and a parallelogram. Rectangle: A quadrilateral with four right angles; a rectangle is a type of parallelogram.

## What disqualifies a kite from being a square?

All definitions of kites require 4 sides. All definitions of kites require two pairs of adjacent (or consecutive) sides of congruent lengths. But some definitions of kites require the two pairs of congruent sides to be distinct, or of different lengths. Under this definition a Square can NOT be a kite.

## Is a rectangle supplementary?

Rectangles. … A rectangle is a parallelogram, so its opposite angles are congruent and its consecutive angles are supplementary.

## How do you prove that a kite is congruent?

If two disjoint pairs of consecutive sides of a quadrilateral are congruent, then it’s a kite (reverse of the kite definition). If one of the diagonals of a quadrilateral is the perpendicular bisector of the other, then it’s a kite (converse of a property).

## Does a rectangle have congruent diagonals?

The rectangle has the following properties:

All angles are right angles by definition. The diagonals are congruent.

## Do kites have congruent angles?

Theorem: The non-vertex angles of a kite are congruent. Theorem: The diagonal through the vertex angles is the angle bisector for both angles.

## Can a kite be a square?

A kite can be both a rhombus and a square.

## Is a rectangle a square?

A square is a rectangle because it possesses all the properties of a rectangle. These properties are: Interior angles measure 90 each. Opposite sides that are parallel and equal.

## Is a rectangle a parallelogram yes or no?

This is always true. Â Squares are quadrilaterals with 4 congruent sides and 4 right angles, and they also have two sets of parallel sides. Parallelograms are quadrilaterals with two sets of parallel sides. … A parallelogram is a rectangle.

## Which quadrilaterals always have opposite angles that are congruent?

If a quadrilateral is a parallelogram, then its opposite angles are congruent. If a quadrilateral is a parallelogram, then its diagonals bisect each other.

## What are congruent sides?

Two triangles are congruent if their corresponding sides are equal in length, and their corresponding angles are equal in measure.
