That's okay :) would you like help now?
Loser66
  • Loser66
yes, please

  • BloomLocke367
Okay, well, hmmm how can I help without giving it away? XD Well, I'm assuming you know what a square is, correct?
Loser66
  • Loser66
yes, I do
BloomLocke367
  • BloomLocke367
Well, to get the first part of your problem, how many points and lines are there in a square?
Loser66
  • Loser66
4points and 4 lines
BloomLocke367
  • BloomLocke367
yes, so you can start with 'a square is a shape with 4 points and 4 lines....' How many sides are congruent in a square?
Loser66
  • Loser66
4
BloomLocke367
  • BloomLocke367
yes so you can say 'a square is a shape with 4 points and 4 lines where all lines are congruent...' or something else that means the same thing.

No, it turns to a rhombus.
BloomLocke367
  • BloomLocke367
What? We aren't done yet. It wouldn't be a rhombus... well, squares are rhombuses but we can make the definition even more precise.
Loser66
  • Loser66
ok, next?
BloomLocke367
  • BloomLocke367
You also have the terms parallel and perpendicular to use.
BloomLocke367
  • BloomLocke367
How many sides are parallel and how many are perpendicular?
Loser66
  • Loser66
2 parallel and 4 perpendicular
BloomLocke367
  • BloomLocke367
yes, now include that into your definition. :)
Loser66
  • Loser66
How?
BloomLocke367
  • BloomLocke367
Well, I don't want to give you the answer XD Just try adding on to what we have and I can help you adjust it if needed.

I need a definition from the given information. I don't want to describe it.
BloomLocke367
  • BloomLocke367
That's how you would define it.. but describing it.
Loser66
  • Loser66
If the definition has something new, then it turns circulation argument. I don't want it. Like: A square is a rhombus which ....., so, I have to define what is a rhombus.....
BloomLocke367
  • BloomLocke367
We don't have to include rhombus. Look at what we already have. It won't turn into a circulation argument.
Loser66
  • Loser66
Ok, let me try. Thanks for the help.
