#### Is quadrilateral ABCD a rectangle?

Mon Sep 11, 2017 12:45 pm

(2) The sum of any 3 angles in the quadrilateral is 270 degrees

What's the best way to determine whether statement 1 is sufficient?

Starting with two perpendicular diagonals that are the same length and intersect at their midpoints gives a square, which is a rectangle.

However, changing the length and midpoints of the lines gives:
