Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Well, to get the first part of your problem, how many points and lines are there in a square?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes, so you can start with 'a square is a shape with 4 points and 4 lines....' How many sides are congruent in a square?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes 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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1No, it turns to a rhombus.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1What? We aren't done yet. It wouldn't be a rhombus... well, squares are rhombuses but we can make the definition even more precise.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Well, 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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I need a definition from the given information. I don't want to describe it.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1That's how you would define it.. but describing it.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1If 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.....

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1We don't have to include rhombus. Look at what we already have. It won't turn into a circulation argument.
