### Do all parallelograms have four congruent sides?

No but a rhombus does which is a type of a parallelogram,

### Are angles and sides of a parallelogram congruent?

In all parallelograms, opposite angles and opposite sides are congruent. If all four sides are congruent, it's a rhombus. If all four angles are congruent, it's a rectangle. If all four sides and all four angles are congruent, it's a square.

### Why a parallelogram does not a rhombus?

A rhombus is a quadrilateral that has four congruent sides. It makes a parallelogram. Not all parallelograms have 4 congruent sides. Some have two pairs of opposite sides congruent.

### Are the faces of a parallelogram congruent?

Parallelograms have sides. Opposite sides are congruent.

### How often does a parallelogram have four congruent sides?

A parallelogram with four congruent sides is called a 'square.' In order to answer how often, we would need to establish the rate of incidence of all parallelograms.

### What is a four-sided polygon with opposite congruent sides?

Parallelograms (including the rhombus, square and rectangle)

### What is a four-sided polygon with two pairs of parallel sides and two pairs of congruent sides?

any parallelogram because parallelograms are polygons with four sides.

### Are all rhombuses parellelograms?

All rhombuses are parallelograms because to be a parallelogram you only have to have four sides and have opposite sides congruent.

All of them.

Yes

### Are all rectangles are parallelograms but not all parallelograms are rectanges true or false?

That is true. A parallelogram is a quadrilateral with both pairs of opposite sides parallel to one another. Special types of parallelograms include a rhombus (all four sides also congruent to each other), a rectangle (all four interior angles measure 90o), and a square (all four sides congruent and all four interior angles are right). A rectangle is a special case of a parallelogram, therefore all rectangles are by definition parallelograms but not all parallelograms are rectangles.

### Do all parallelograms have diagonals which bisect?

Yes; all parallelograms have diagonals that bisect each other. Other properties of parallelograms are: * The opposite sides are congruent. * The opposite sides are parallel. * The opposite angles are congruent.
