They can, if you start off with a square, and make a diagonal line from a little out on the top line to the bottom right-hand corner.

No, trapezoids do not have right angles. A trapezoid is a quadrilateral with only one pair of parallel sides. The other two non-parallel sides can be of different lengths and angles.

### What to quadrilaterals have no right angles how do you know?

Rhombuses and trapezoids have no right angles by definition.

### Do some trapezoids have 4 right angles?

Yes. Those trapezoids with four right angles are called squares. Since in order to be a trapezoids, a shape must be a quadrilateral with with one set of parallel lines, and a square fits those requirements. In conclusion, the trapezoids that have four right angles are squares.

No

### Do some trapezoids have 3 right angles?

Yes, a trapezoid can have 3 right angles.

### Does a trapezoids four right angles?

noIt has 2 obtuse angles and 2 acute angles though.

### How do you find the height of a trapezoid if it has two right angles?

Trapezoids do not have right angles. You probably thinking of a polygon or quadralateral.

### Quadrilaterals have no right angles?

Certain quadrilaterals have right angles. Right trapezoids are the most general example. Rectangles are specialized right trapezoids, and squares are specialized rectangles. There may be more but I can't recall them. Many rhombuses and parallelograms have no right angles. However, they might (and then you'd probably call them squares or rectangles but they are also technically rhombuses, parallelograms and trapezoids).

### Why aren't all trapezoids rectangles?

Because they don't have right angles.

### Do trapezoids have 4 right angles?

No, because it would then be considered a rectangle.

### What 4 sided shapes have right angles in them?

Squares, rectangles, and some trapezoids.

### Do trapezoids have 2 angles?

Trapezoids actually have 5 angles (Including the straight angle).

### How many parallel sides and right angles in trapezoid?

There is one pair of parallel sides. A trapezoid can have at most one right angle. Not all trapezoids have right angles.
