 Question 89626: When a square is divided by a diagonal it is ? a. an isosceles acute triangle is formed b. an equilateral triangle is formed c. a scalene obtuse triangle is formed d. a right isosceles triangle is formedAnswer by Edwin McCravy(8909)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!``` When a square is divided by a diagonal it is ? a. an isosceles acute triangle is formed b. an equilateral triangle is formed c. a scalene obtuse triangle is formed d. a right isosceles triangle is formed Let's divide a square by its diagonal and see: Start with this square: Draw a diagonal: Separate the two triangles: Each of those triangles is a right triangle because a square has four right angles. Each of those triangles is isosceles because each has a two equal sides because a square has all four of its sides equal in length. So since they are both right triangles as well as isosceles, the answer is (d) although the problem should state "TWO right isosceles triangleS ARE formed". Edwin```
