Learn the important **properties of rectangle** which will help you in doing problems. Like any other objects rectangle also have some important properties. As a student knowing properties of rectangle is good and it is required also.

Before studying properties we will just revise the definition of **rectangle** which we studied already. A rectangle is a quadrilateral in which opposite sides are equal in length and all four angles are equals to 90 degrees. Now we will list out all the important **properties** **of rectangle**. Each of these **properties** is very important to remember.

**Important properties of rectangle:**

→Length of opposite sides are equal and also parallel.

→Each of the interior angles of rectangle is equal to 90 degrees.

→It has two diagonals which are equal in length and bisect each other.

→Sum of interior angles is equal to 360 degrees.

→For a rectangle Sum of exterior angles is equal to 360 degrees.

→If a rectangle has length “L “units and breadth “B “units then length of the diagonal is given by

→Each diagonal of rectangle divides it into two congruent triangles.

I hope you understood the concept.
