One type of polygons is a quadrilateral. There are quite a few
quadrilaterals, and they have some distinct properties.
A quadrilateral has four sides, and its
diagonals always intersect
and form triangles.
A kite is a quadrilateral with 2 pairs of consecutive sides of equal length. Its 2
diagonals are perpendicular to each other, and it has one pair of congruent
A rectangle is a qudrilateral with four right angles. The diagonals
intersect at their midpoints and the triangls formed are congruent.
Both diagonals are equal in length, adn one diagonal forms 2 right
A rhombus is a quadrilateral with four sides of equal length. Its
diagonals meet at their midpoints and are perpendicular to each other.
A square is a quadrilateral with four right angles and four sides of
equal length. It has the traits of a rectangle and a rhombus.
A trapezoid is a quadrilateral with exactlyone pair of
parallel sides. The diagonals do not necessarily form congruent triangles.
