No, because a rhombus is a shape and a parallel is not a shape it is a term for two lines that go across an object and the two lines never make contact with each other, once again it is not a shape. So no they are not the same.

How is a rhombus the same to a parrallelogram?

A rhombus is not the same as a parallelogram - it is a special type of parallelogram. A paralllogram and a rhombus are quadrilaterals with two pairs of parallel sides. In addition, all four sides of a rhombus are the same length.


Do a rhombus have 2 right angles 1 pair of parallel sides and no sides are the same?

We're starting with a rhombus.-- 2 right anglesNot necessarily. A rhombus doesn't need any right angles in order to be a rhombus,but it can have some, and if it has one right angle, then it has four of them.-- 1 pair of parallel sidesA rhombus has two pairs of parallel sides. If it doesn't, then it's not a rhombus.-- no sides are the sameIf it's a rhombus then all four of its sides are the same length. If they're not, then it isn't a rhombus.


A quadrilateral with opposite sides parallel and all sides are not the same length?

a rhombus


How can you convince me that a rhombus is a parallelogram but a parallelogram is not a rhombus?

A parallelogram requires that opposite sides are parallel and of the same length; it is not a requirement that all four sides are of the same length. A rhombus requires that opposite sides are parallel and all four sides are of the same length. It is possible that a parallelogram can have all four sides of the same length; when it does it now fulfils the requirements of a rhombus, and so is a rhombus. Thus a rhombus is a type of parallelogram (all rhombuses are parallelograms), but there are parallelograms which are not rhombuses (those where there are two sides of one length (opposite and parallel) and the other two sides of a different length).


Does a rhombus have 1 parallel line?

there are 2 parallel lines in a rhombus because if you think of a square a rhombus is just a slanted square

Which quadrilateral are you if you have four sides that are the same length and your opposite sides are parallel?

I am a rhombus. I don't need to prove that my opposite sides are parallel. If I'm a quadrilateral with four sides that are the same length, then I am definitely a rhombus.


Does a rhombus have a parallel?

If "rhumus" was meant to be "rhombus" and "pallrel" was meant to be "parallel", and if I understand the question correctly, then yes, a rhombus has two pairs of sides which are mutually parallel.


Is a rhombus parallel?

Yes. A rhombus is parallel. Or also called a parallelogram. It's parallel because it is a quadrilateral with 4 parallel sides.
