Yes. To be a trapezoid, a quadrilateral must have one pair of sides that are parallel. Since rhombuses are parallelograms, they are all also trapezoids, so a subset of trapezoids are rhombuses.

Rhombuses always have 4 equal sides, trapezoids do not.

### How many sides does 2 trapezoids have and 2 rhombuses?

trapezoids have 4 sides, rhombuses have 4 sides

### Are there any trapezoids that are also rhombuses?

yes - all the rhombuses. By definition a trapezoid has two parallel sides, a rhombus also has two parallel sides - because both pairs of opposite sides are parallel. So all rhombuses are trapezoids (but not all trapezoids are rhombuses)

yes

### What are some similarities between rhombuses and trapezoids?

### Which are the figures that have parallel sides?

Squares, Parallelograms, Trapezoids, Rectangles, and Rhombuses

### What are 4 different types of quadrilaterals?

trapezoids, squares, rhombuses, rectangles

### What to quadrilaterals have no right angles how do you know?

### What are quadrilaterals that aren't rectangles?

### No rhombuses are trapezoids?

Yes that is correct because a rhombus has 2 pairs of parallel sides whereas a trapezoid has only 1 pair of parallel sides

### Difference between trapezoid and rhombus?
