Four rods, two of length a and two of length b, are linked to form
a kite. The linkage is moveable so that the angles change. What is
the maximum area of the kite?
How many differently shaped rectangles can you build using these
equilateral and isosceles triangles? Can you make a square?
This gives a short summary of the properties and theorems of cyclic quadrilaterals and links to some practical examples to be found elsewhere on the site.
Derive a formula for finding the area of any kite.
