## What are the types of quadrilaterals and their properties?

Square All sides are equal. All angles are equal and measure 90°.
Rectangle Opposite sides are parallel. Opposites sides are equal. All angles are equal and measure 90°.
Rhombus All sides are equal. Opposite angles are equal.

### What are the properties of quadrilateral shapes?

There are two properties of quadrilaterals: A quadrilateral should be closed shape with 4 sides. All the internal angles of a quadrilateral sum up to 360°…Properties of parallelogram

• Opposite angles are equal.
• Opposite sides are equal and parallel.
• Diagonals bisect each other.
• Sum of any two adjacent angles is 180°

What are the six types of quadrilaterals?

They are:

• Trapezium.
• Parallelogram.
• Rectangle.
• Rhombus.
• Square.
• Kite.

What are the classification of quadrilaterals?

Inscriptible Kite, Dart, Rhombus, Square
Having two parallel sides Rhombus, Square, Rectangle, Parallelogram, Trapezoid
Having two pairs of parallel sides Rhombus, Square, Rectangle, Parallelogram
Equilateral Rhombus, Square

A quadrilateral is a plane figure that has four sides or edges, so having four corners or vertices. Quadrilaterals will typically be of standard shapes with four sides like rectangle, square, trapezoid, and kite or irregular and uncharacterized as shown below:

### How many shapes does a quadrilateral have?

A quadrilateral is a 2D shape with four sides. There are six special quadrilaterals with different properties.

What are the attributes of a quadrilateral?

Quadrilateral just means “four sides”. (quad means four, lateral means side). A Quadrilateral has four-sides, it is 2-dimensional (a flat shape), closed (the lines join up), and has straight sides.

What are the rules of a quadrilateral?

Rules for Quadrilaterals. 1. These rules are the same for all quadrilaterals: a) They are all polygons. b) The interior angles ALWAYS add to 360 degrees. 2. These are the rules for rectangles a) The diagonals of a rectangle are congruent and bisect each other. b) Opposite sides are ALWAYS parallel.
