A)Arrange four equal-length sides, so the diagonals bisect each other.

B)Arrange four equal-length sides, so the diagonals are equal lengths also.

C)Make each diagonal the same length as four equal-length sides.

D)Not possible; Lucinda has to be able to measure a right angle.

I thought it was B but then a friend of mine said it was d and I didn't know if he was right or not so now im second guessing myself. am I right or is he?

**Ms. Sue**, Thursday, December 13, 2012 at 4:37pmI believe your friend is right.

Check it out. On a piece of graph paper draw a parallelogram. Do the diagonals bisect each other?

**Joey**, Thursday, December 13, 2012 at 4:43pmIn order for it to be a square, the diagonals need to be the same length. In a parallelogram (if you are talking about a rhombus), they do bisect, but the diagonals are not equal in length.

**Joey**, Thursday, December 13, 2012 at 4:53pmNo disrespect intended, but you disproved your point with those links Ms. Sue. The second link, at the very bottom it asks this question:

Example: A rhombus has diagonals of 6 m and 8 m, what is its Area?

Squares have equal diagonals.

**Ms. Sue**, Thursday, December 13, 2012 at 5:00pmThanks, Joey. You're right.

Bailey was right with her answer of b.
