A rectangle is a quadrilateral with four right angles.
A rectangle is a parallelogram.
A rectangle has opposite congruent sides.
Diagonals of a rectangle bisect each other.
The diagonals of a rectangle are congruent.
If the diagonals of a parallelogram are congruent, then the
parallelogram is a rectangle.

Check.3.2 Connect coordinate geometry to geometric figures in the
plane (e.g. midpoints, distance formula, slope, and polygons).
Spi.3.2 Use coordinate geometry to prove characteristics of
polygonal figures.
Check.4.10 Identify and apply properties and relationships of
special figures (e.g., isosceles and equilateral triangles, family of

Objective: To be able to identify rectangles and understand and apply properties.
Diagonals of a Rectangle
• Quadrilateral MNOP is a rectangle.
• If MO=6x + 14 and PN = 9x+5,
• Find x.
6x + 14 = 9x + 5
9 = 3x
3=x
Angles of a Rectangle
• Quadrilateral ABCD is a rectangle.
• Find x and y
4y + 4 = y2 -1
4x + 5 + 9x + 20 = 90
13x +25 = 90
13x = 65
x=5
Disregard y=-1,
negative angle
0= y2 -4y -5
0= (y-5)(y+1)
y = 5 or y=-1
Coordinate Plane
is a rectangle given vertices at
F(-4, -1), G(-2, -5), H(4, -2), J(2,2)
Perpendicular lines form Right Angles
Slopes of perpendicular lines are opposite inverses
Sides consecutive
sides are
perpendicular
making this a
rectangle.
