# Verify that the following points taken in order to form the vertices of a rhombus A(1, 1), B(2, 1), C(2, 2) and D(1, 2) - Mathematics

Sum

Verify that the following points taken in order to form the vertices of a rhombus

A(1, 1), B(2, 1), C(2, 2) and D(1, 2)

#### Solution

Distance = sqrt((x_2 - x_1)^2 + (y_2 - y_1)^2

AB = sqrt((2 - 1)^2 + (1 - 1)^2

= sqrt((1)^2 + (0)^2

= sqrt(1)

= 1

BC = sqrt((2 - 2)^2 + (2 - 1)^2

= sqrt((0)^2 + (1)^2

= sqrt(1)

= 1

CD = sqrt((1 - 2)^2 + (2 - 2)^2

= sqrt((- 1)^2 + (0)^2

= sqrt(1)

= 1

AD = sqrt((1 - 1)^2 + (2 - 1)^2

= sqrt((0)^2 + (1)^2

= sqrt(1)

= 1

AB = BC = CD = AD = 1.

All the four sides are equal.

∴ ABCD is a rhombus.
