A quadrilateral and a rectangle are the same so.............

4 right angles

A rectangle is defined as "a parallelogram with one right angle" A parallelogram is defined as "a quadrilateral with opposite sides equal and parallel" This makes a rectangle a sort of second-generation quadrilateral!

2 triangles together and a parallelogram is a quadrilateral that has 2 sets of equal sides. ☺

A shape that is a parallelogram but not a quadrilateral doesn't exist.

No. A parallelogram is a special kind of quadrilateral.

A quadrilateral is a polygon with four sides. A parallelogram is a quadrilateral in which the opposite sides are parallel.

In this case, the quadrilateral is sometimes a parallelogram.

No. A quadrilateral is a parallelogram when consecutiveangles are supplementary.

No, a parallelogram is not another kind of quadrilateral.

It's not a matter of 'finding' it. Either the quadrilateral is a parallelogram,or else it is not one.If the opposite sides of the quadrilateral are parallel, then it's a parallelogram.
