## Definition

**Kite** is a two dimensional (2D) geometric shape. It is a quadrilateral with two distinct pairs of adjacent sides that are congruent. Kites have a couple of properties that will help us identify them from other quadrilaterals.

- The diagonals of a kite meet at a right angle.
- Kites have exactly one pair of opposite angles that are congruent.

## Formula

** Area: **Area is calculated by the formula:

**(Diagonal**

_{1}* Diagonal_{2}) / 2** Perimeter: **This is equal to the sum of all sides i.e.:

**2 * (Small Side + Large Side)**

## Measurement Units

** Meter (m): **is the base unit of length in the International System of Units (SI). Meter is defined as the distance traveled by light in a specific fraction (1299 792 458) of a second.
