State whether the
In rectangle ABCD, diagonals bisect the angles.
Consider ΔAOD and ΔBOC
AD = BC (ABCD is a rectangle)
∠AOD = ∠BOC (Vertically opposite angles)
∠OAD = ∠OCB = 45° (Diagonals bisect the angles)
ΔAOD ≅ ΔBOC (AAS congruence criterion)
Therefore, OA = OC and OB = OD
Thus the diagonals bisect each other in a rectangle.
