### Grade 7 - Mathematics8.8 Rhombus

 Properties of Rhombus: The diagonals in a rhombus bisect each other. Each diagonal of a rhombus divides it into two congruent triangles. Opposite angles of a rhombus are equal and the sum of any two adjacent angles is 180°. In a rhombus the diagonals bisect each other at right angles, that is, the diagonals are perpendicular to each other and bisect each other. THEOREMS A quadrilateral is a rhombus, if and only if it has four congruent sides. AB @ BC @ CD @ DA A parallelogram is a rhombus, if and only if its diagonals are perpendicular AC ^ BD A parallelogram is a rhombus, if and only if each diagonal bisects a pair of opposite angles. Directions: Read the above review points carefully and answer the following questions: Explain the different theorems of a rhombus, in your own words, with examples. Illustrate each of the above review points by drawing different rhombus. If one of the angles of a rhombus is 2 times the adjacent angle, then what will be the value of the angle opposite to it? Give reasons. A side of a rhombus is given by 16 cm. What will be the value of half of the other side? Give reasons. Question: The diagonals of rhombus ABCD intersect at O. Given that measure of ÐBAC is 530 and DO = 8, Find the mÐABO, mÐABC, mÐBCO, mÐBCD, mÐCDO, mÐCDA, mÐAOB, mÐBOC, mÐAOD, AO, AC, BD (Hint: Use pythagorean theorem to find the measures of angles)
