In a rectangle, opposite sides are equal and parallel.

Yes opposite sides are parallel in a rectangle

Its opposite sides are parallel.

Yes, every rectangle is a parallelogram. Parallelograms are defined as a shape with opposite, but parallel sides. A rectangle is defined as a shape with 90 degree angles, 2 sets of parallel sides, and the opposite sides must be equal in length. Because the sides of any rectangle are parallel, any qualified rectangle is a parallelogram.

Quadrilaterals that have parallel opposite sides (assuming that each side is parallel to its opposite): A parallelogram A rectangle A square (really a rectangle with all sides equal in length)

rectangle

Yes opposite sides are parallel

A rectangle perhaps

yes

Yes.

parallelagram

No, they are parallel.

Yes, they are.

Because a rectangle has two pairs of opposite equal parallel sides whereas a trapezoid only has one pair of opposite parallel sides of different lengths

A four-sided polygon with opposite sides parallel could be a square, a rectangle, or a rhombus.If it has one pair of opposite, parallel sides, then it is a trapezoid. If it has two pairs of opposite, parallel sides, then it is a parallelogram.

rhombus

Yes A parallelogram has opposite sides parallel and equal in length. Does a rectangle have opposite sides parallel and equal in length? Yes Thus a rectangle is a parallelogram.

a rectangle does not have four equal sides and its opposite sides are equal and has four right angles

hexogon

A regular hexagon.

Yes, they must be.

Parallelogram, Rectangle, Square, Kite, Rhombus, Trapezium(only 1 pair of opposite sides is parallel).

Take your pick: square, rectangle, rhombus or parallelogram which all have opposite parallel sides

Yes - the rectangle has two pairs of sides that are parallel respectively one to the other in each pair.

They are both 4 sided quadrilaterals but a rectangle has two pairs of opposite parallel sides whereas a trapezoid only has one pair of opposite parallel sides.
