A trapezoid and a rectangle are both polygons.

No, every trapezoid is not a rectangle. There is no overlap between rectangles and trapezoids -- that is, no trapezoid is a rectangle. They are both four-sided quadrilaterals

A rectangle and a trapezoid are not the same but they are both 4 sided quadrilaterals.

A rectangle is never a trapezoid because a rectangle does not have exactly 1 pair of parallel sides

'A square is a type of rectangle, a rectangle is a type of paralellogram, a paralellogram is a type of trapezoid, a trapezoid is a type of quadrilateral.

A rectangle has four right angles; a trapezoid doesn't.

'A square is a type of rectangle, a rectangle is a type of paralellogram, a paralellogram is a type of trapezoid, a trapezoid is a type of quadrilateral.

A rectangle is not a trapezoid. A trapezoid is defined as a quadrilateral with one pair of parallel sides and another pair that is not parallel. That description cannot be applied to a rectangle. It is only if you define a trapezoid as a quadrilateral with one pair of parallel sides and say nothing at all about the other sides, can a rectangle be said to be a trapezoid. But you would have to be mathematically incompetent to use that as a definition of a trapezoid.

is a trapezoid a rectangle
