**Covid-19 has led the world to go through a phenomenal change .You are watching: Abcd is a square could it also be a parallelogram**

**E-learning is the future today.**

**Stay Hons , Stay Safe and keep learning!!!**

**A square is a parallelogram with all sides equal and all angles are 900Square and its Theorems :Theorem 1 : The diagonals of a square are equal and perpendicular to each other.**

**Given :**ABCD is a square.

**Prove that :**AC = BD and AC ⊥ BD .

**Statements**

**Reasons**1) ABCD is a square.1) Given2) AD = BC2) Properties of square.3) ∠BAD = ∠ABC3) Each 900 and by properties of square.4) AB = BA4) Reflexive (common side)5) Δ ADB ≅ ΔBCA5) SAS postulate6) AC = BD6) CPCTC7) OB = OD7) As square is a parallelogram so diagonals of parallelogram bisect each other.8) AB = AD8) Properties of square.9) AO = AO9) Reflexive (common side)10) ΔAOB ≅ ΔAOD10) SSS Postulate11)**∠AOB = ∠AOD11) CPCTC12)∠AOB + ∠AOD = 18012) These two angles form linear pair and Linear pair angles are supplementary).13) 2∠AOB = 18013) Addition property.14) ∠AOB = 9014) Division property.15) AO ⊥ BD⇒ AC ⊥ BD15) Definition of perpendicular.****Theorem 2 : If the diagonals of a parallelogram are equal and intersect at right angles, then the parallelogram is a square.****Given :**ABCD is parallelogram in which AC = BD and AC ⊥ BD.**Prove that :**ABCD is a square.**Statements**
