# What triangles will form a kite?

Right angled triangles

A kite is a special kind of quadrilateral, that is, a shape with four sides and four vertices. A kite can be made with 4 right triangles.

Any two triangles which are a mirror image of each other will form a kite if their long sides are brought together.

### Is a triangle a kite?

No. A kite is a quadrilateral (4 sided figure) with two pairs of adjacent sides of equal length; its diagonals are perpendicular. A triangle has 3 sides.

### Can a kite be an acute triangle?

No because it is a quadrilateral Answer: Kites can be made in any simple shape (triangle, rectangle, tetrahedron, circle, etc.) or even complex forms (birds, dragons, sailing ships, etc.) as long as there is a sufficient surface area to provide lift to the system

### How many triangles are in a kite?

Well, that depends on the Kite. You can divide it in a number of ways. But on a standard kite, there's 4.

### Do the diagonals of a quadrilateral kite separate the kite into four congruent triangles?

Not necessarly. If the sum of two of the sides congruent to each other are greater than that of the sides opposite them, then no. If however the kite forms a rombus ot square, the diagnoles will form four congruent triangles with the base of both being the line of symmetry.

### Does a right triangle or right kite have right angles?

right angle triangles have right angles, but there is no such thing as a right angle kite

### Do kites form 2 pare of congruent triangals?

The triangle on top is smaller than the one on the bottom. The reason for this is to have more surface area on the bottom, so the kite leans into the wind. If both triangles were the same size, the kite would lay horizontal (level) and the wind would not lift the kite up. It is a vector problem. Here is a good site to see the physics of kite flyingwww.real-world-physics-problems.com/physics-of-kite-flying.html The kite leans into… Read More

### How do you divide a hexagon into 1 kite and 2 isosceles triangles using 2 lines?

1. Pick any vertex corner point on the hexagon 2. Draw straight line, going clockwise, to corner point skipping the corner point next to where you started 3. From the new point draw another straight line to corner point, going clockwise, again skipping the next corner point 4. There you have it!

### What is the name of a kite in maths other than kite?

In geometry a kite, or deltoid, is a quadrilateral with two disjoint pairs of congruent adjacent sides, in contrast to a parallelogram, where the congruent sides are opposite. The geometric object is named for the wind-blown, flying kite (itself named for a bird), which in its simple form often has this shape.

### What is a kite diagram?

a kite diagram is a graph showing the density and distribution of several species.the species can be compared and their interrelationship can be determined through this graph.

### What does a kite have?

In geometry, a kite is a four sided polygon, with 2 adjacent sides congruent, and the other 2 adjacent sides congruent. Also, each of the 2 opposite angles (which connect the non-congruent sides are congruent to each other, and the other 2 angles non-congruent. The diagonals are congruent. There is one line of symmetry. Since a picture is worth a thousand or so words, view the related link.

### Is square a kite?

Absolutely. A square object with strings tied to it can be used as a kite. The sheet styrofoam from a building supply store works fantastic, but it is fairly unstable in flight without lots of controlling strings or tails (something that pulls on the back end to keep it facing in one direction). Box kites are cubes with some faces open, to help channel the wind or create its own internal drag for stability and… Read More

### Is a kite a rhombus?

yes its nonsensical * * * * * The self-contradictory answer is correct to the extent that it is nonsensical. A rhombus is a quadrilateral with two pairs of parallel sides and all sides of equal length. A kite cannot have any parallel sides.

### Is a square a kite?

No, a square is not a kite. In order for a parallelogram to be considered a square it must have all sides congruent and four right angels. A kite doesn't have any right angels and not all the sides are congruent to one another

### What angle measure is a kite?

I can answer this if the question concerns Penrose tiling using "kite" and "dart" tiles. The "kite" is a quadrilateral whose four corners have angles of 72, 72, 72, and 144 degrees. The "dart" is a non-convex quadrilateral whose four interior angles are 36, 72, 36, and 216 degrees. If however if the questioner want to determine an unknown angle in of a general kite quadrilateral (two sides of length a and two sides of… Read More

### How 2 draw a kite?

first u make a triangle top and then u do the same at the bottom but u got LONGER

### A kite with 12 faces?

A kite is a 2-dimensional quadrilateral. Being 2-d, it can have only one face.

### Is every kite a rectangle?

ummm NO ive seen square ones and cylender ones and dragons and ships and triangles............*nods*As amusing as the above answer is, the mathematical answer is no because kites do not have parallel sides.

### Does a kite have angles?

Yes. A kite is a geometric shape, ans as with all geometric shapes (save for the circle and sphere), it has angles.

### Is a rhombus always a kite?

A rhombus is never a kite.A rhombus is a parallelogram with all its sides equal in length. Opposite angles are therefore equal and the rhombus is symmetrical about each of its diagonals.A kite is a quadrilateral having two pairs of adjacent sides equal in length. Only one pair of opposite angles is equal and the kite is symmetrical about the line that bisects the unequal opposite angles. A kite does not have any parallel sides.

### How is a kite a rhombus?

A rhombus has four sides that are all the same length ---------------------------------------- but if you are talking about the geometric shape kite - it is not a rhombus. A kite has two adjacent sides of equal length and the other two sides of equal length. Only a square can be a rhombus.

### Does a kite have a perpendicular?

In a kite geometric shape, the diagonals are always perpendicular.
