Quadrilateral IV: An Easy Way To Remember Properties of Squares

In this post, we will discuss Properties of Squares that will help you solve geometric questions that are asked in SSC CGL Exam.

Do you remember the cartoon character the “Sponge Bob”?  Well, who doesn’t?  The cute little sponge bob who made our childhood special. You might be wondering why are we discussing this? Can you remember the shape of Sponge Bob? Yes, you got it right! Square. Now, what do know about squares? Do we know the Properties of Squares?

In this post, we will discuss all the properties of squares that will help you attempt geometric questions that are asked in SSC Exams.

In our previous posts, we have discussed properties of parallelogram, rectangle, and rhombus. Quickly review these concepts to have a deep understanding of Properties of Squares.

What is a Square?

A square is four sided closed figure. It is a parallelogram whose angles are perpendicular and all the sides are equal to each other.

Properties of Squares 1:

In a square, all the sides are equal to each other.

AB = BC = CD = DA

Properties of Squares 2:

In a square, opposite sides are parallel to each other.

AB// CD

Properties of Squares 3:

In a square, All the angles equal to 90°.

∠A = ∠B = ∠C = ∠D = 90°

Properties of Squares 4:

In a square, diagonals are equal in length.

AC = BD

Properties of Squares 5:

In a square, diagonals bisect each other perpendicularly.

AC = BD; AO = BO = CO = DO

Area and Perimeter of a Square:

Hope now it's easy for you to remember all the properties of squares.
