• Kite (a two-dimensional figure) is a quadrilateral with two pairs of adjacent sides that are congruent.
• Acute angle measures less than 90°.
• Congruent is all sides having the same lengths and angles measure the same.
• Diagonal is a line from one vertices to another that is non adjacent.
• Obtuse angle measures more than 90°.
• a = b
• c = d
• ∠B = ∠D
• ∠A ≠ ∠C
• ∠A + ∠B + ∠C + ∠D = 360°
• 2 diagonals
• 4 sides
• 4 vertexs

## Angle of a Kite formulas
