Diagonals of a Rectangle??????

Why don't the diagonals of a rectangle bisect the angles? This may seem so easy, but I'm having difficult time understanding it....I'm confused because I know that the digonals of a rectangle bisect each other....so then why don't the angles do the same??? Pls. Help! THX:smile:

Well draw a rectangle and draw in a diagonal.

Now you have two right triangles to work with. Now just see what has to be true if the two angles are to be equal.
