Two diagonals of a rhombus bisect each other at right angles

Proposition:Let the diagonals AC and BD of the rhombus ABCD intersect at O. It is required to prove that,
(i) ∠AOB = ∠BOC = ∠COD = ∠DOA = 1 right angle
(ii) AO = CO, BO = DO.

Proof:Step-1: A rhombus is a parallelogram. Therefore, AO = CO, BO = DO. (Diagonals of a parallelogram bisect each other)

Step-2: Now in ΔAOB and ΔBOC,
AB = BC (sides of a rhombus are equal)
and OB = OB. (common side)
Therefore, ∠AOB = ∠BOC.
∠AOB + ∠BOC = 1 straight angle = 2 right angles.
∠AOB = ∠BOC = 1 right angle.
Similarly, it can be proved that, ∠COD = ∠DOA = 1 right angle. (Proved)
