A quadrilateral with 4 known sides and 1 known angle 
20100319 

From samuel: Name: Samuel
Status: Student
I have a quadrilateral with 4 known sides and 1 known angle, and I'm trying to evaluate the other angles of my quadrilateral.
By the law of cosines, I can easily find my opposite angle (using the diagonal as a basis for the equation).
However, to find the two remaining angles, I have found no other way so far than to use the other diagonal, which can be found with the equation attached (from geometry atlas).
Is there any simpler way? Answered by Robert Dawson and Harley Weston.

Proving a quadrilateral is a rectangle 
20070714 

From Sonja: I was having this discussion with another teacher and we need a third opinion. When you are trying to prove a quadrilateral is a rectangle which method should you use:
 Prove the shape is a parallelogram by doing slope 4 times by stating that parallel lines have equal slopes. Then proving a right angle by stating that perpendicular lines have negative reciprocal slopes.
 Doing the slope 4 times and stating that the shape is a rectangle because opposite sides are parallel because of equal slopes and it contains a right angle because of negative reciprocal slopes.
I guess the real question is do you have to first state that the shape is a parallelogram? Answered by Stephen La Rocque.
