    Are the two quadrilaterals of same shape?

    Is it possible to prove this?

    Say I have an arbitrary quadrilateral. If a new quadrilateral is formed by expanding each vertex the same distance along the diagonals, the new quadrilateral will have the same angles as the initial quadrilateral.

    This question is extremely vague. attracted is a quadrilateral the red lines are the diagonals.

    Ok fair enough. I would say a quadrilateral where the intersection point of two diagonals is within the quadrilateral.
