A pair more.

A parallelogram has two pairs of sides that are parallel when a trapezoid only has one. A parallelogram's opposite sides are congruent and opposite angles are congruent. A trapezoid has no opposite congruent sides or angles, unless it's an isosceles trapezoid, which base angles are congruent. They both have four sides and four interior angles that add up to 360 degrees.

It can be any polygon with 5 or more sides. Or it can be a trapzium (trapezoid).

No. They cannot be similar because a parallelogram has two pairs of sides with equal length. A parallelogram cannot have more than one pair.

An octagon has four more sides than a trapezoid, because an octagon has 8 sides whereas a trapezoid has 4 sides

2It has one pair more because a parallelogram has two pairs of parallel sides whereas a trapezoid only has one pair of opposite parallel sides of different lengths.

A trapezoid and parallelogram are both quadrilaterals. Their top and bottoms are parallel. In a parallelogram, all four sides are parallel making it look like a rectangle that was pushed on an angle. The trapezoid is more like the shape of an "A" with a square top.

Two more sides

Any shape with more than 3 sides can have two pairs of equal sides and no right angles. If it only has 4 sides in total and isn't a parallelogram, then it's a trapezoid.

Any polygon with four sides is a quadrilateral. Some more specific example of quadrilaterals are: parallelogram > rectangle > square parallelogram > rhombus > square trapezoid > isosceles trapezoid where ">" indicates that the one is a special case of the other.

A quadrilateral is a shape that has 4 or more sides. A trapezoid had four sides. If a trapezoid doesn't have 4 sides, then it is not a trapezoid.

Pentagram has 5 sides A parallelogram has 4 (2 opposing sides parallel to eachother)
