Yes.

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).

As trapezoid is a quadrilateral. All quadrilaterals have 4 angles along with 4 sides

Yes they are. The definition of a quadrilateral is a closed figure with four sides. A square always has four congruent sides and is a closed figure. Therefore, all squares are quadrilaterals. Trapezoids, rhombuses, and rectangles are also quadrilaterals.

For all trapezoids, and indeed all quadrilaterals, the total of inside angles is 360°.

All quadrilaterals are 4 sided shapes which includes trapezoids.

There are many different quadrilaterals such as squares, trapezoids, rectangles, rhombus and parallelogram.

Parallelograms and trapezoids have different geometrical properties but they are both 4 sided quadrilaterals.

No. Some quadrilaterals are trapezoids and some aren't.A quadrilateral is any drawing with four sides.A trapezoid is any drawing with four sides and two of the sides are parallel.So all trapezoids are quadrilaterals. But there are a lot of other quadrilateralsthat aren't trapezoids.

No because trapezoids have different properties to that of parallelograms but they are both 4 sided quadrilaterals.

Trapezoids are 4 sided quadrilaterals

trapezoids, squares, rhombuses, rectangles

Yes.

There are many types of quadrilaterals. These include parallelograms, rectangles, squares, rhombuses, trapezoids, scalene trapezoids, right-angled trapezoids, and isosceles trapezoids.

Yes because all 4 sided shapes are quadrilaterals which includes trapezoids.

Both trapezoids and rectangles are quadrilaterals.
