    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.

    Every rhombus has perpendicular diagonals. The diagonals of every rhombus bisect each other. A rectangle has congruent diagonals.

    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.
