Definition. Rectangle  is a quadrilateral in which two opposite sides are equal and all angles is right.Rectangles differ only ratio of long side to short but four angles is right, that is 90 degrees. The sides of the rectangle is both its altitudes.
The basic properties of a rectangleRectangle can be a parallelogram, rhombus or square in which all the angles right.
1. An opposite sides of the rectangle are the same length, i.e. they are equal:
2. An opposite sides of the rectangle are parallel:
3. An adjacent sides of the rectangle are always perpendicular:
4. All four angles of the rectangle is right:
5. The sum all of the angles of a rectangle is equal to 360 degrees:
6. A diagonals of the rectangle are equal:
7. The sum of the squares two diagonals is equal to the sum of the squares of the sides:
8. The each diagonal divides the rectangle into two equal shape, namely a right triangle.
9. A diagonal of a rectangle in half divides each other:
10. Intersection point of the diagonals is called the center of the rectangle and also a center of the circumcircle (incenter).
11. Diagonal of a rectangle is the diameter of the circumcircle.
12. Around the rectangle can always describe a circle, because the sum of the opposite angles is 180 degrees:
13. In rectangle with the different size of sides never enter the incircle.
A rectangle sidesDefinition. The length of rectangle is called the length of the longer pair of its sides. The width of rectangle is called the length of the shorter pair of its sides.A rectangle sides formulas:1. Formula of rectangle sides in terms of diagonal and another rectangle side:
