A trapezoid

### What quadrilaterals have only one pair of parallel sides?

Trapezoids. All other quadrilaterals either have two pairs of parallel sides or none.

### Are quadrilaterals with two parallel sides always parallelograms?

No. If there are only 2 parallel sides, then it's a trapezoid. It's nota parallelogram unless there are two pairs of parallel sides.

### How is a trapeziod different from the other four types of quadrilaterals you have learned about?

A trapezoid is different from other quadrilaterals that have 2 pairs of parallel sides in that a trapezoid has only 1 pair of parallel sides of different lengths.

### Are all quadrilaterals also parrelograms?

Quadrilaterals are called parallelograms ONLY if both pairs of opposite sides are equal and parallel to each other.

### What quadrilaterals do not have two pairs of opposite sides that are parallel?

Any that are not a parallelogram (rhombus, rectangle, square). These would include all irregular quadrilaterals as well as trapezoids (trapeziums) which have only one set of parallel sides.

### Do all quadrilaterals have opposite sides parallel?

No, only trapeziums (1 pair), parallelograms and squares (both pairs)

### How is a trapezoid different from the other four types of quadrilaterals?

There are more than 4 other types of quadrilaterals.A trapezoid has only one pair of parallel sides. All other quadrilaterals have no parallel sides or two pairs.

### Are trapeziodes rectangles?

No, even though they are both quadrilaterals (having 4 sides), both pairs of sides of the rectangle are parallel; whereas, only one pair of sides on a trapezoid are parallel.

### Can some trapezoids be parallelograms?

No because a trapezoid only has 1 pair of parallel sides whereas a parallelogram has 2 pairs of parallel sides but they are both 4 sided quadrilaterals.

### How is a trapezoid parallelogram alike and how are they different?

They are both 4 sided quadrilaterals but a trapezoid has only 1 pair of parallel sides whereas a parallelogram has 2 pairs of parallel sides.

### What there is in parallelogram that does not have in trapezium?

They are both 4 sided quadrilaterals with a parallelogram having 2 pairs of parallel sides whereas a trapezium has only 1 pair of parallel sides of different lengths
