Since any polygon can be constructed from a combination of other polygons, I would call this rule a "trivial property of polygons".

I only know one which is a polygon:)

A pyramid

A square, a rectangle, a parallelogram.

polygon, trapezium, quadrilateral are three other names

Any polygon other than a triangle can be divided into simpler polygons. They can all be divided into triangles.

A pyramid

polygon & quadrilateral * * * * * That is not really true. A trapezoid is a particular type of quadrilateral and that, in turn, is a particular type of polygon. That does not make them alternative names for a trapezoid.

Answer: Yes it can have four sides, but as the explanation below shows, it can have many other numbers of sides as well. Explanation: A polygon can have as many sides as needed. We give specific names to polygons dependent upon the number of sides that it has: triangle: A polygon made with three sides. quadrilateral: A polygon made with four sides. pentagon: A polygon made with five sides. hexagon: A polygon made with six sides. heptagon: A polygon made with seven sides. octagon: A polygon made with eight sides . In fact, if we have n sides, we can call that polygon an n-gon. So in short, yes a polygon can have four sides, so all 4 sided shapes are polygons, however, not all polygons have four sides.
