(Please help!!)The figure shown is a rhombus. What conditions would also make it a square? mult. choice.
a. the figure would be a congruent if the diagonals were congruent b. the figure would be a square if the diagonals were perpendicular c. the figure would be a square if the diagonals bisect each other d. none, a rhombus can never be a square.
its either A, B, or C.

how do you think it and why ?
the diagonales in a rhombus how are ?
the diagonales in a rhombus are perpendiculare yes ? but not are equale
Option a makes no sense. The figure would be a ___?___ if the diagonals were congruent. What goes in ___?___ ?
when the diagonales in a square are equale
so its either B or C right?
Every rhombus has perpendicular diagonals. The diagonals of every rhombus bisect each other. A rectangle has congruent diagonals.
Notice the statement "A rectangle has congruent diagonals."
Is a square a rhombus?
ohh so it would be A? instead.
A rhombus may or may not be a square.
If a rhombus is a rectangle, then it also a square.
If a rhombus has congruent diagonals (option a), then the rhombus is a rectangle. If a rhombus is a rectangle, then it is also a square.
@mathstudent55 sorry but i think that a rhombus is allways a rectangle because has 4 sides but a square is allways a rhombus because the oppsosite sides are paralelle and equale so if i remember right from my math studies

A rhombus is a quadrilateral with all sides congruent. If one angle of the rhombus is a right angle, then the rhombus is a rectangle, and therefore also a square. A square is always a rhombus because by definition a square has four sides, and they are all congruent. A square is always a rhombus. A rhombus is not always a square.
check these Rectangle Rhombus All angles are equal. All sides are equal. Alternate sides are equal. Alternate angles are equal. Its centre is equidistant from its vertices, hence it has a circumcircle. Its centre is equidistant from its sides, hence it has an incircle. hence it has an incircle Its axes of symmetry bisect opposite sides. Its axes of symmetry bisect opposite . a. angles. Diagonals are equal in length. Diagonals intersect at equal angles.
