How can I write a definition of a square in terms of points, lines, parallel, perpendicular and congruence?
Please, help
I don't want to describe it.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You know what a square is. I would start b y writing something out in plain English and then working the mathematical terminology into it.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so, before giving out the definition of a square, I must add the definition of   term, rightg?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if so, why not a quadrilateral or a rhombus? It is quite easier, right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0How about defining the four vertices as \((x_1, y_1), (x_2, y_2), (x_3, y_3), x_4, y_4)\) such that \(x_1=x_3\), \(x_2=x_4\), \(y_1=y_2\), and \(y_3=y_4\). Then you have to add the appropriate line segment connecting the correct vertices. That do it?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You might want to constrain your circle definition to a 2dimensional figure. Otherwise, you'll end up with a sphere.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1what I had before a square is a set of 4 points such that when they are connected by lines creates 2 sets of parallel lines that are perpendicular to each other and all 4 segments are the same lengths.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Couple of issues I can see:dw:1441562290366:dwFour points connected by line segments? Also, is a square really a set of four points? Or is it a set of four line segments?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@ospreytriple Yes, I did. I constrain them in 2 D, so that the parallel lines are in the same plane and they don't turn to the skew lines in 3D

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@triciaal I don't think so, he is just figure out how a reader can critique your definition. That is the way we project a geometry.
