The coordinates of ABCD are A(-2,5), B(1,8) C(4,5) D(1,2). Show that ABCD is a rhombus. 1 way: use Distance formula AB= BC= CD= DA= 18 9 9 ) 5 8 ( ) 4 1 ( 2 2 = + = - + - 18 9 9 ) 8 5 ( ) 1 2 ( 2 2 = + = - + - - 18 9 9 ) 2 5 ( ) 1 4 ( 2 2 + + = - + - 18 9 9 ) 5 2 ( )) 2 ( 1 ( 2 2 = + = - + - - All four sides 2245 , so it is a rhombus.
Example cont. Another way: use Slope Formula
