Quadrilateral Summary

Name | Definition | Example |
---|---|---|

Parallelogram | 2 pairs of parallel sides | Created with Raphaël |

Trapezoid | Exactly 1 pair of parallel sides | Created with Raphaël |

Rectangle | 4 right angles | Created with Raphaël |

**What has parallel sides but is not a trapezoid?**

An Isosceles trapezoid, as shown above, has left and right sides of equal length that join to the base at equal angles….The Trapezoid (UK: Trapezium)

Trapezoid | Trapezium | |
---|---|---|

In the US: | a pair of parallel sides | NO parallel sides |

In the UK: | NO parallel sides | a pair of parallel sides |

**What does not have parallel sides?**

Explanation: The American term for such a quadrilateral is a trapezium, and the British term is a trapezoid. It is a quadrilateral that has no parallel sides.

### What has only one pair of parallel sides?

trapezoid

A trapezoid has one pair of parallel sides and a parallelogram has two pairs of parallel sides.

**Does a rhombus have 4 right angles?**

A rhombus is defined as a parallelogram with four equal sides. Is a rhombus always a rectangle? No, because a rhombus does not have to have 4 right angles. Kites have two pairs of adjacent sides that are equal.

**Can a trapezoid have 4 right angles?**

A trapezoid can have either 2 right angles, or no right angles at all.

#### What 2 Quadrilaterals have no parallel sides?

In India and Britain, they say trapezium ; in America, trapezium usually means a quadrilateral with no parallel sides.) An isosceles trapezoid is a trapezoid whose non-parallel sides are congruent. A kite is a quadrilateral with exactly two pairs of adjacent congruent sides. (This definition excludes rhombi.

**Does a rhombus have all angles 90?**

As a parallelogram, rhombus has a sum of two interior angles that share a side equal to 180∘ . Therefore, only if all angles are equal, they all are equal to 90∘ .

**Are angles of rhombus 90?**

In Euclidean geometry, a rhombus is a special type of quadrilateral that appears as a parallelogram whose diagonals intersect each other at right angles, i.e., 90 degrees.

**How many pairs of parallel sides in a square?**

A square has two pairs of parallel sides, four right angles, and all four sides are equal. It is also a rectangle and a parallelogram.

### What one pair of opposite side are parallel?

A trapezoid (called a trapezium in the UK) has a pair of opposite sides parallel. And a trapezium (called a trapezoid in the UK) is a quadrilateral with NO parallel sides: (the US and UK definitions are swapped over!)

**Which shape has only one pair of parallel sides?**

Parallel Sides. Polygons with parallel sides could have one pair of parallel sides, like this isosceles trapezoid: Or the polygon could have two pairs of parallel sides, two pairs of opposite sides that are always the same distance apart, like this square and rectangle: Or this regular octagon shows that you could have four pairs of parallel sides:
