I am working on a geometry problem where I have to build a mobile of the quad. family. I have to state the properties of each figure. For a parallelogram I have 1. opp. sides are congruent 2. opp. angles are congruent 3. diagonals bisect each other and are congruent. For a rhombus I have 1. each diagonal bisects and are perpendicular. For a trapezoid I have the midsegment half the length of the base.
I have nothing for a rectangle, square, kite or isosceles trapezoid.

My question is are the ones I have correct and can you help me with the properties I don't have

  • geometry -

    For a parallelogram, add:
    - opposites sides are parallel

    For a rhombus, add:
    all the properties of a parallelogram, plus
    - diagonals are angle bisectors
    - ______ axes of symmetry

    For a trapezoid, add:
    - ____ pair of parallel opposite sides

    For a rectangle, add:
    all the properties of a parallelogram, plus
    - _________ sides are perpendicular to each other
    - ___ axes of symmetry

    For a square, add:
    all the properties of a rectangle, plu
    - all sides are congruent
    - ____ axes of symmetry

    For a kite:
    - has ____ pairs of congruent adjacent sides.
    - Diagonals are perpendicular to each other
    - ____ of the diagonals is an axis of symmetry, therefore it bisects the internal angles.

    For an isoceles trapezoid,
    - _____ pair of opposite parallel sides
    - _____ axis of symmetry
