A quadrilateral with two pairs of equal adjacent sides and unequal opposite sides is called a kite.
Now we are going to define a kite \(ABCD\) is a quadrilateral having two pairs of equal adjacent sides and unequal opposite sides.
Thus, if \(ABCD\) is a kite, then \(AB = AD\) and \(BC = CD\).
In a kite, the following properties are true:
- The sum of all the four angles of the kite is equal to \(360°\).
- A kite has two pairs of equal adjacent sides.
- A kite has unequal opposite sides.
- The diagonals of kite perpendicular bisect of each other.
- One of the diagonals bisects the other diagonal.
- In the figure, \(∠B =∠D\) but \(∠A ∠C\).
