Okay, well, hmmm how can I help without giving it away? XD
Well, I'm assuming you know what a square is, correct?

- Loser66

yes, I do

- BloomLocke367

Well, to get the first part of your problem, how many points and lines are there in a square?

- Loser66

4points and 4 lines

- 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

4

- 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.

- Loser66

No, it turns to a rhombus.

- 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

ok, next?

- BloomLocke367

You also have the terms parallel and perpendicular to use.

- BloomLocke367

How many sides are parallel and how many are perpendicular?

- Loser66

2 parallel and 4 perpendicular

- BloomLocke367

yes, now include that into your definition. :)

- Loser66

How?

- 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.

- Loser66

I need a definition from the given information. I don't want to describe it.

- BloomLocke367

That's how you would define it.. but describing it.

- 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

We don't have to include rhombus. Look at what we already have. It won't turn into a circulation argument.

- Loser66

Ok, let me try. Thanks for the help.

- BloomLocke367

You're welcome :)
