Look at the amazing four-sided trapezoid! That 'square' is not square, it is a trapezoid.

A square may or may not be a trapezoid, or trapezium. That's because there is a bit of a difference of opinion as to the definition of a trapezoid. One definition of the trapezoid is that is has one pair of parallel sides. The square meets this condition. Another definition of the trapezoid is that is has exactly one pair of parallel sides. The square cannot meet that definition because it has two pairs of parallel sides. Use the link below for more information on the trapezoid.

A square can't be a trapezoid because it has two parellel sizes.
