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

No, a rectangle is not a trapezoid.

is a trapezoid a rectangle

NO. A trapezoid cannot be a rectangle. If a parallelogram has one right angle then it is a rectangle. A trapezoid doesn't satisfy this condition because a trapezoid is a quadrilateral with exactly one parallel side which means that it doesn't have a right angle.

A trapezoid is never a rectangle but they are both 4 sided quadrilaterals

A rectangle and a trapezoid have four sides.

A rectangle and a trapezoid are alike in that:both are polygonsboth have four sides (that is, both are quadrilaterals)both have four anglesboth have interior angles whose sum is 360°both have exterior angles whose sum is 360°both have at least one pair of parallel sidesthe area of each is (1/2 of the height) times (the sum of the bases)both can tesselateBy definition, a rectangle is NOT a trapezoid since a trapezoid can have ONLY one set of parallel sides and a rectangle always has two.

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

No, a rectangle is not a trapezoid.

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

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.

NO. A trapezoid cannot be a rectangle. If a parallelogram has one right angle then it is a rectangle. A trapezoid doesn't satisfy this condition because a trapezoid is a quadrilateral with exactly one parallel side which means that it doesn't have a right angle.

a trapezoid has 1 pair of parallel lines and a rectangle has 2 parallel lines
