It can be but a square and a rhombus diagonals are also perpendicular and therefore intersect at 90 degrees and they too are both quadrilaterals.

### Which geometric figure has 2 diagonals?

Every closed figure with at least 4 sides has at least 2 diagonals. Every quadrilateral (figure with exactly 4 sides) has exactly 2 diagonals. That includes all parallelograms, rhombera, rectangles, squares, trapezoids, diamonds, and kites, as well as all other irregular quadrilaterals.

### Do all trapeziums have diagonals of equal length?

No. Even in the non-US use of the term (a quadrilateral with at least one set of parallel lines), the lengths of the parallel lines may not be the same, and/or the angles formed by each adjacent side may be different (as in a rhomboid), resulting in diagonals of extremely different lengths.Only in rectangles are diagonals "always" of equal length.

### What is a quadrilateral that is not a rectangle?

Any quadrilateral in which at least one (and therefore at least two) angles are not right angles is not a rectangle. The majority of these do not have a specific name.

### What are at least facts and features of a rectangle?

It is a 4 sided quadrilateral It has 4 interior right angles It has 2 diagonals Its opposite side are parallel It has length and width of different dimensions It will tessellate It has a perimeter which is the sum of its 4 sides It has an area which is length times width

### Does a square have at least 1 pair of perpendicular sides?

I suppose. All of a square's sides are perpendicular.

No.

### How many triangles are there in a quadrilateral?

You can divide a quadrilateral up into as many triangles as you want, but at least two.

### Do perpendicular lines intersect in at least two points?
