A quadrilateral is a closed shape and a type of polygon that has four sides, four vertices and four angles .
Types of Quadrilaterals
As the word ‘Quad’ means four, all these types of quadrilaterals have four sides, and the sum of angles of these shapes is 360 degrees. The list of types of quadrilaterals are: Trapezium Parallelogram Squares Rectangle Rhombus Kite
Fun Facts About Quadrilaterals
1) A quadrilateral is a trapezoid or a trapezium if 2 of its sides parallel to each other. A quadrilateral is a parallelogram if 2 pairs of sides parallel to each other. 2) Squares and Rectangles are special types of parallelograms. Below are some special properties.– All internal angles are of “right angle” (90 degrees).– Each figure contains 4 right angles.– Sides of a square are of the same length (all sides are congruent) – Opposite sides of a rectangle are the same.– Opposite sides of a rectangle and square are parallel. 3) A quadrilateral is a rhombus, if all the sides are of equal length-specified 2 pairs of sides are parallel to each other. 4) A kite is a special sort of quadrilateral, in which 2 pairs of adjacent sides are equal to each other.
