## What does an equilateral shape look like?

An Equilateral triangle is just what it sounds like: a triangle with all its sides equal. Because all of its sides are equal, it follows that all of its angles are also equal. This triangle has no three sides equal; in other words, all the sides are of different lengths.

## What is an equilateral square?

A square is equilateral, because all of its sides are the same length. A rhombus is also equilateral — its sides are also the same length. A triangle can be equilateral too, but not a scalene triangle, which has three sides of different lengths.

## Is a square equilateral triangle?

Since the equilateral triangle shares a side with the square, each of the five sides that are outlined have the same length. Recall that the height of an equilateral triangle splits the triangle into congruent triangles. We can then use the height to find the length of the side of the triangle.

## What is the main difference between a kite and a rhombus?

RHOMBUS- a quadrilateral in which all four sides are congruent. KITE- a quadrilater in which each pair of consecutive sides are congruent, but opposite sides are not congruent.

## What classifies a kite?

A kite is a quadrilateral with exactly two pairs of adjacent congruent sides. Some textbooks say a kite has at least two pairs of adjacent congruent sides, so a rhombus is a special case of a kite.)

## What are the characteristics of a kite?

Kite properties include (1) two pairs of consecutive, congruent sides, (2) congruent non-vertex angles and (3) perpendicular diagonals. Other important polygon properties to be familiar with include trapezoid properties, parallelogram properties, rhombus properties, and rectangle and square properties.

## Does a kite equal 360?

A kite is a polygon with four total sides (quadrilateral). The sum of the interior angles of any quadrilateral must equal: degrees degrees degrees. Additionally, kites must have two sets of equivalent adjacent sides & one set of congruent opposite angles.
