A 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.

The 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

When an altitude is drawn to the hypotenuse of a right triangle, the lengths of the segments of the hypotenuse are 16 and 25. What is the length of the altitude?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Ahh, let me draw
anonymous
  • anonymous
I know what an altitude is, but this one I just don't get at all...
anonymous
  • anonymous
Ok, so like this?
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes... how did you do that?

and AD is the altitude right?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yep

Do you get that AD splits ∆ABC into two similar triangles which are similar to the large triangle?
anonymous
  • anonymous
yeah
anonymous

Wait, i'm thinking

Ok, so then AB/BC = BD/AD right?
anonymous
  • anonymous
So then AB/41 = 25/AD
anonymous
  • anonymous
okay
anonymous
  • anonymous
Similarly, AC/BC = DC/AD right?
anonymous
  • anonymous
AC/41 = 16/AD
anonymous
  • anonymous
right
anonymous
  • anonymous
now make AD the subject in both of these
anonymous
  • anonymous
how?
anonymous
  • anonymous
for the first one, AD = 16*41/AC
anonymous
  • anonymous
okay
anonymous
  • anonymous
hmm, I just lost it
