Best Answer

Actually it has two pairs of parallel opposite sides, this follows from the definition of sides of equal length sitting at 90degrees angles.

### How do you make 2 trapezoids out of a square using 1 line?

Draw a line touching one side to the opposite side of the square, which is not parallel to any side, and does not touch any vertex, so you will have two new quadrilaterals, each one has one pair of parallel sides and one pair of nonparallel sides.

### What 3quadrilatrals have 1 parallel sides?

You cannot have 1 parallel side; in a quadrilateral a side must be parallel to another side. A trapezium has one pair of parallel sides. A parallelogram, with special cases of a rhombus also have a pair of parallel sides. In fact they have two pairs of parallel sides but the question does not limit the number of parallel sides to one. (NB the rectangle and square are special cases of the parallelogram and rhombus.)

Squares always have two pairs of opposite sides that are parallel. A square cannot have just one pair of parallel sides. A quadrilateral (four-sided figure) with exactly one pair of parallel lines is a trapezoid.

### Why can't a square ever be a trapezoid?

One definition of a trapezoid is that it is a quadrilateral with exactly one pair of parallel sides. The square has two pairs of parallel lines.Using the idea of exactly one pair of parallel sides, the trapezoid cannot be a square or rectangle.did you hear this from a teacher
