In this tutorial, we learn how to understand special quadrilaterals. A quadrilateral is a shape with four sides. Three figures of these are: kites, parallelograms, and trapezoids. Two types of parallelograms are the rhombus and the rectangle. Rectangles have four right angles. A square is also a parallelogram, which has four right angles and two congruent sides. A square is always a rhombus a parallelogram is always a quadrilateral and a kite is always a quadrilateral. The parallelogram is sometimes a rectangle. A kite is never a parallelogram or a trapezoid. Learning these tips will help you better understand how shapes work in math, enjoy.
