Quadrilaterals, or a four sided shape, are fundamental shapes in geometry. They consist of (from most general to complex):
From this diagram, it should be very easy to see how these figures are drawn.
- Trapezoids - One pair of parallel sides.
- Parallelograms - Two pairs of parallel sides.
- Rectangles - A quadrilateral with four right angles.
- Kites - Two congruent adjacent sides.
- Rhombuses - All sides congruent.
- Squares - All sides equal and all angles 90o
