## What are the 4 types of parallelograms?

**There are three special types of a parallelogram.**

- Rhombus: A parallelogram in which all sides are equal.
- Rectangle: A parallelogram in which all angles are right angles and the diagonals are equal.
**Square**: A parallelogram with all equal sides and all angles equal to 90 degrees. The diagonals of a**square**are also equal.

## What does a rhombus look like?

A **rhombus looks like** a diamond

Opposite sides are parallel, and opposite angles are equal (it is a Parallelogram). And the diagonals “p” and “q” of a **rhombus** bisect each other at right angles.

## What is the difference between a rhombus and a parallelogram?

**In a rhombus**, all the four sides are equal and the diagonals intersect at 90 degrees, whereas **in a parallelogram**, the opposite sides are equal and the diagonals bisect each other.

## What are 3 characteristics of a parallelogram?

**There are six important properties of parallelograms to know:**

- Opposite sides are
**congruent**(AB =**DC**). - Opposite angels are
**congruent**(D = B). - Consecutive angles are supplementary (A + D = 180°).
- If one angle is right, then all angles are right.
- The diagonals of a parallelogram bisect each other.

## How do you identify a parallelogram?

**You’ll know that your quadrilateral is a parallelogram if it has these properties of parallelograms:**

- The opposite sides are parallel.
- The opposite sides are congruent.
- The opposite angles are congruent.
- Consecutive angles are supplementary (add up to 180-degrees).
- The diagonals bisect each other.

## What is a unique parallelogram?

In a **parallelogram**, opposite sides are equal, opposite angles are equal and diagonals bisect each other. A quadrilateral can be constructed uniquely if its two adjacent sides and three angles are given. • A quadrilateral can be constructed uniquely if its three sides and two included angles are given.

## Is every kite a rhombus?

In general, any quadrilateral with perpendicular diagonals, one of which is a line of symmetry, is a **kite**. **Every rhombus** is a **kite**, and any quadrilateral that is both a **kite** and **parallelogram** is a **rhombus**. A **rhombus** is a tangential quadrilateral. That is, it has an inscribed circle that is tangent to all four sides.

## Is every square a rhombus?

A **rhombus** is a quadrilateral (plane figure, closed shape, four sides) with four equal-length sides and opposite sides parallel to each other. All squares are rhombuses, but not all rhombuses are squares. The opposite interior angles of rhombuses are congruent.

## How do you find an angle of a rhombus?

**Find** An **Angle** In A **Rhombus**: Example Question #4

The four interior **angles** in any **rhombus** must have a sum of degrees. The opposite interior **angles** must be equivalent, and the adjacent **angles** have a sum of degrees. Since **angle** is adjacent to **angle**, they must have a sum of degrees.

## Does Rhombus have 4 right angles?

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. A **rhombus** is defined as a parallelogram with four **equal sides**. No, because a **rhombus does** not **have** to **have 4 right angles**.

## What is a parallelogram that is not a rhombus?

A **parallelogram** is a quadrilateral or four-sided figure in which the opposite sides are parallel. And because the opposite lines are parallel, hence the opposite angles are **also** equal. A **rhombus**, on the other hand, may be defined as an equilateral **parallelogram**. A **rhombus** is **also** called as a diamond or a lozenge.

## Is a trapezium a parallelogram?

A **trapezium** is not a **parallelogram** because a **parallelogram** has 2 pairs of parallel sides. But a **trapezium** only has 1 pair of parallel sides.

## What are characteristics of parallelogram?

Two pairs of opposite sides are parallel (by **definition**). Two pairs of opposite sides are equal in **length**. Two pairs of opposite angles are equal in measure. The diagonals bisect each other.

## Are opposite angles equal in a parallelogram?

A **parallelogram** is a quadrilateral whose **opposite sides** are parallel. The **opposite angles** of a **parallelogram** are **equal**. The **opposite sides** of a **parallelogram** are **equal**.
