Given coordinates of four points in a plane, find if the four points form a square or not.
To check for square, we need to check for following.
a) All fours sides formed by points are the same.
b) The angle between any two sides is 90 degree. (This condition is required as Quadrilateral also has same sides.
c) Check both the diagonals have the same distance
The idea is to pick any point and calculate its distance from the rest of the points. Let the picked point be ‘p’. To form a square, the distance of two points must be the same from ‘p’, let this distance be d. The distance from one point must be different from that d and must be equal to √2 times d. Let this point with different distance be ‘q’.
The above condition is not good enough as the point with different distance can be on the other side. We also need to check that q is at the same distance from 2 other points and this distance is the same as d.
Below are the implementations of the above idea.
