Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0A rhombus has all angles equal to 90° but a square has opposite angles equal. A rhombus has diagonals which are unequal but a square has diagonals which are equal. A rhombus has equal diagonals but a square has unequal diagonals. A rhombus has non perpendicular diagonals but a square has perpendicular diagonal.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The first one is definitely not, a rhombus's angles are not all 90° The last one is wrong, because a rhombus has perpendicular diagonals. The third one is wrong, because a square certainly has equal diagonals. So yes, it is B. Just think over the properties of a rhombus and square

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok, so then AB/BC = BD/AD right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So then AB/41 = 25/AD
