3. Lucinda wants to build a square sandbox, but she has no way of measuring angles. Which of the following explains how she can make sure the sandbox is square by measuring only length? (1 point) A. Arrange four equal-length sides, so the diagonals bisect each other. B. Arrange four equal-length sides, so the diagonals are equal lengths also. C. Make each diagonal the same length as four equal-length sides. D. Not possible; Lucinda has to be able to measure a right angle.

    Not true. To make a square without measuring angles, make sure all four sides are the same, then confirm the diagonals are the same. The first step confirms that the figure is a rhombus; the second ensures that rhombus is a square. The diagonals of every rhombus bisect one another, so answer a is no good. Answers c is nonsense, and d is not true.
