Prove that the circle drawn with any side of a rhombus as diameter passes through the point of intersection of its diagonals.
Let ABCD be a rhombus in which diagonals are intersecting at point O and a circle is drawn while taking side CD as its diameter. We know that a diameter subtends 90° on the arc.
∴ ∠COD = 90°
Also, in rhombus, the diagonals intersect each other at 90°.
∠AOB = ∠BOC = ∠COD = ∠DOA = 90°
Clearly, point O has to lie on the circle.
