So this is a question in the "Looking Ahead" (extension) section of my homework. I have a few questions like this on the worksheet but just answering this one would help me a lot. Any help provided would honestly be great. :) 1. There is a square HJKL. The coordinates of the points are as follows H(0,2), J(2,6), K(6,4), L (4,0). a. What is the length of each diagonal? b. What is the slope of each diagonal? c. Are the diagonals congruent perpendicular bisectors?

    \[\sqrt{(x2-x1)^2 + (y2-y1)^2}\] Right?

    Yes. I would draw the square first to see which points are endpoints of diagonals. |dw:1360722505087:dw|

    I used the distance between two points online calculator to get the length of diagonal LJ. http://easycalculation.com/analytical/distance.php

    Use it to calculate the length of diagonal HK.
