# Squaring with Diagonal Measurements

## A rectangle is square if the lengths of both diagonals are equal.

A rectangle where both lengths and both widths are equal is square if length of both diagonals are equal!

A = B                                  (1)

where

A, B = diagonal measurements (m, ft ..)
