How Do You Find the Value for a Variable in the Angles of a Quadrilateral To Make it a Rhombus?

How Do You Find the Value for a Variable in the Angles of a Quadrilateral To Make it a Rhombus?

Note:

A parallelogram needs to have certain qualities in order to be a rhombus. In this tutorial, you'll use your knowledge of these shapes in order to find the value for a variable that will make a given parallelogram a rhombus.

Keywords:

rhombus

diagonal

Background Tutorials

Solve linear equations in one variable, including those for which the application of the distributive property is necessary and for which variables are included on both sides

Trying to solve an equation with variables on both sides of the equal sign? Figure out how to get those variables together and find the answer with this tutorial!

Prove a quadrilateral is a parallelogram, rectangle, square, or rhombus using opposite sides, opposite angles, or diagonals and apply these relationships to solve problems

A parallelogram is a special type of quadrilateral with some special properties. In this tutorial, take a look at parallelograms and learn what kinds of quadrilaterals can also be called parallelograms!

Further Exploration

Investigate patterns to make conjectures about geometric relationships, including angles formed by parallel lines cut by a transversal, criteria required for triangle congruence, special segments of triangles, diagonals of quadrilaterals, interior and exterior angles of polygons, and special segments and angles of circles choosing from a variety of tools

When you make diagonals inside a rectangle, those diagonals are congruent. With this information, you can find the value of a variable that's part of a measurement of a diagonal. This tutorial shows you the steps.
