A four-sided shape with two pairs of parallel sides is a parallelogram. But if it has at least one right angle, then it has to have four right angles... which makes it a rectangle.

A four-sided shape with one right angle is a quadrilateral. There is no more specific term, unless it has more than one right angle or has equal sides.

No shape has only 1 parallel side. A trapezoid is a 4-sided shape, or quadrilateral, with only 2 parallel sides; it does not necessarily have to have 2 right angles. (In the UK a trapezoid is called a trapezium.) In North America, a trapezium is a quadrilateral with 0 (no) parallel sides.

A rectangle is a four-sided shape where every angle is a right angle.A rhombus is a four-sided shape where all sides have equal length.A square has equal sides and every angle is a right angle.Opposite sides are parallel and equal in length, and opposite angles are equal.

The four sided shape that has two parallel lines is called a trapezoid. A parallelogram is a four sided shape that has two pairs of parallel lines.

The shape can only be a rectangle! A rectangle is a four-sided 2-dimentional figure, where every angle is a right angle, opposite sides are parallel, but the 4 sides are NOT equal.

If you mean shape there is no such shape. if a 4 sided shape has 2 right angles it MUST be either a square or a rectangle, in which case there are actually 4 right angles and 2 pairs of parallel sides. =)

The equation for the size of an interior angle of an n-sided regular polygon is (n-2)180/n. When n=7, the interior angle of a regular sided shape would be 5x180/7 or approximately 128.57. The polygon in the question has an interior right angle (90 degree angle) and thus cannot be a regular shape. A 7 sided shape is called a heptagon. Thus, the shape described in the question is an irregular heptagon.

You can make a four sided shape with 3 right angles, but it must have another right angle, too. So technically, yes.

A Square and Rectangle are both a Quadrilaterals(A four sided shape)and have both have 4 Right Angles.In addition,a irregular Quadrilateral(A four sided shape of no sides of the same length)may have a right angle( A 90 degrees angle)but it depends on how you draw it on paper.Cretth 2010
