## Qwerty90 3 years ago Which statement can be used to fill in the blank space? (basically which one of these is true) be= ae bc=ad ab=cd be=ce

1. Qwerty90

2. Qwerty90

Im stuck between the first and last one

3. UnkleRhaukus

they are all true

4. Qwerty90

Well which one of these proves that the diagonals of the rectangle bisect each other.

5. Qwerty90

now any ideas?

6. emanumak

be=ae

7. UnkleRhaukus

either the first or last, but you knew that already

8. emanumak

because if you drop a perpendicular to touch the base it forms a rght angled triangle with the same distance...half distance really of the width of the formed rectangle.

9. emanumak

sorry triangle

10. UnkleRhaukus

i can not see any difference between the first and last

11. Qwerty90

me either?

12. UnkleRhaukus

can you draw the perpendicular @emanumak|dw:1335874943323:dw|

13. emanumak

|dw:1335875093040:dw|

14. UnkleRhaukus

|dw:1335875177013:dw|

15. UnkleRhaukus

the same

16. emanumak

i agree

17. Qwerty90

so what is your finl verdict

18. FoolForMath

For proving that the diagonals of a rectangle bisects each other we have to prove that BE=ED and AE=EC. |dw:1335875476114:dw|

19. FoolForMath

From your figure, BE=AE=EC=ED is for a square.

20. UnkleRhaukus

so you have to write Both be= ae & be=ce in the blank?

21. Qwerty90

No it can only be one

22. UnkleRhaukus

perhaps the context is important here, can you provide the closed passage

23. FoolForMath

Discerning from this, it seems to me that there is something wrong or incomplete with this question.

24. Qwerty90

There is actually a proof but I couldn't load it up but here is the sentence aboce the proof

25. Qwerty90

The two-column proof with missing statement proves that the diagonals of the rectangle bisect each other

26. Qwerty90

so is it the first or last?

27. UnkleRhaukus

it depends on the sentence before the blank

28. Qwerty90

Definition of a Parallelogram thats what it says

29. Qwerty90

Im thinking its be=ae?

30. UnkleRhaukus

ok can you write the sentence that includes the blank as well

31. wumbo

be= ae
