The diagonals of a rhombus bisect each other at right angles (90°).
That is, each diagonal cuts the other into two equal parts, and the angle where they cross is always 90 degrees.
In the figure above drag any
to reshape the rhombus and convince your self this is so.

... I have a small favor to ask. Over the years we have used advertising to support the site so it can remain free for everyone.
However, advertising revenue is falling and I have always hated the ads. So, would you go to Patreon and become a patron of the site?
When we reach the goal I will remove all advertising from the site.
It only takes a minute and any amount would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you for considering it! – John Page
