### How many sides does a quadrilateral trapezoid have?

All trapezoids must be quadrilateral. And, as the name suggests a quadrilateral has four sides.

yes

### What quadrilateral don't have a right angle?

Some trapezoids, not all.

### Is an quadrilateral a trapezoid?

Some are, and some are not. A trapezoid is a special kind of quadrilateral ... one in which two of the four sides are parallel. So all trapezoids are quadrilaterals, but there are also a lot of other quadrilaterals that are not trapezoids.

### Are some trapezoids rhombuses?

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.

### Is a quadrilateral a trapezoid?

No, a quadrilateral isn't always a trapezoid. One way to consider it is that all trapezoids are quadrilaterals (four-sided shapes), but not all quadrilaterals are trapezoids. Some quadrilaterals are concave quadrilaterals, some are scalene convex quadrilaterals (called trapezoids in the UK), some would be trapezoids, and some would be parallelograms (rectangles, squares, rhomboids, rhombi). If parallelograms are considered a special case of trapezoids, then trapezoids would include all non-scalene convex quadrilaterals, which is a highly inclusive definition.

### Is a trapezoid is a quadrilateral.?

If parallelograms are considered a special case of trapezoids, then trapezoids would include all non-scalene convex quadrilaterals, which is a highly inclusive definition.

### Can a quadrilateral be a trapezoid?

Yes, because a trapezoid has 4 sides. A trapezoid is a special kind of quadrilateral, one in which two of the four sides are parallel. So all trapezoids are quadrilaterals, but there are also a lot of other quadrilaterals that are not trapezoids.

### Is quadrilateral can be a trapezoid?

Yes, because a trapezoid has 4 sides. A trapezoid is a special kind of quadrilateral, one in which two of the four sides are parallel. So all trapezoids are quadrilaterals, but there are also a lot of other quadrilaterals that are not trapezoids.

### All quadrilaterals are trapezoids or parallelograms?

The answer to your question is neither. Trapezoids and paralellagrams(however you spell that) are both quadrilaterals. A quadrilateral is any shape with all straight edges and four sides. Hope I helped!

### What quadrilateral has four angles?

All quadrilaterals have four angles including: squares rectangles rhombus trapezoids parallelograms

### What is a trapezoid cut in half called?

It could be two trapezoids, or a triangle and a quadrilateral. It all depends on where the cut is made.
