 Brahmagupta's Theorem: Cyclic quadrilateral. Level: High School, SAT Prep, College geometry


Brahmagupta's theorem states that if a cyclic quadrilateral ABCD has perpendicular diagonals, then the perpendicular to a side from the point of intersection of the diagonals always bisects the opposite side. See also: Corollary.

Brahmagupta (598–668) was an Indian mathematician and astronomer who discovered a neat formula for the area of a cyclic quadrilateral.
