Your question: Are opposite angles in a kite equal?

A kite is symmetrical. So it has two opposite and equal angles.

Which angles are equal in a kite?


  • The two angles are equal where the unequal sides meet.
  • It can be viewed as a pair of congruent triangles with a common base.
  • It has 2 diagonals that intersect each other at right angles.
  • The longer or main diagonal bisects the other diagonal.
  • A kite is symmetrical about its main diagonal.

Are all kite angles equal?

A kite is a polygon with four total sides (quadrilateral). The sum of the interior angles of any quadrilateral must equal: degrees degrees degrees. Additionally, kites must have two sets of equivalent adjacent sides & one set of congruent opposite angles.

Does a kite have opposite angles congruent?

A kite is a quadrilateral in which two disjoint pairs of consecutive sides are congruent (“disjoint pairs” means that one side can’t be used in both pairs). … The opposite angles at the endpoints of the cross diagonal are congruent (angle J and angle L).

Are the opposite sides of a kite parallel?

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.
