(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

As the title says, the question asks of us to: Prove that the diagonals of a non square kite are perpendicular using vectors.

2. Relevant equations

if a is perpendicular to b then a . b =0

normal vector addition and subtraction

3. The attempt at a solution

a kite made from points A B C D

..............._a_A

.............b| /\

.......D.....|/....\......B

...........c|.\..../

.............|...\/

C

AD = a + b

DC = a + c

b≠c

i know we have to use dot products but im not sure how to implicate that into this...
