Best Answer

a pentagon has 5 sides total, and no parallel sides. A hexagon has 6 sides, so it has 3 parallel sides. any shape with an odd number of equal sides has 0 parallel sides, no matter how many sides it has. every shape with an even number of equal sides will have the # of sides divided by 2 (#/2) of parallel sides.
