Question
Using a coordinate proof, try to prove this question: prove that the diagonals of a kite are perpendicular

Answer
Put the kite down so that the top and bottom are on the y axis.
Slide the kite up or down so that the points on the side are on the x axis.
I believe this makes the x-axis and y-axis be the diagonals of a kite.
It is known that the axis are perpendicular.
