Some doubts and new properties (for me) I found regarding the properties of some geometric shapes:
1. The median of a trapezoid is the line joining the midpoint of the two legs (the non-parallel sides). Yet, it can be calculated as the average of the two bases (the parallel sides).
2. The diagonals of a square bisect the angles. Does this apply to rhombus and rectangle too (or, parallelograms in general)?
3. The diagonals of a square and a rhombus bisect each other at 90 degrees. Does this apply to a rectangle too (or, parallelograms in general)?
4. The diagonals of a square are equal. If the diagonals of a rhombus are equal, it must be a square. Does this apply to a rectangle too (or, parallelograms in general)?
5. Does the altitude of an isosceles triangle bisect the base (the non-equal side)?
6. Does the altitude of the base (non-equal side) of an isosceles triangle bisect the vertex?
7. Do (5) and (6) apply to an equilateral triangle?
I would be thankful if the doubts were cleared off (or is it cleared away?).
Kudos is the currency of appreciation.
You can have anything you want if you want it badly enough. You can be anything you want to be and do anything you set out to accomplish, if you hold to that desire with the singleness of purpose. ~William Adams
