A quadrilateral is a shape that has 4 sides.

Any shape with 4 sides is a quadrilateral

Since a quadrilateral can mean any 4-sided shape there is no true definition of their angles. A square is always a quadrilateral and therefore it's angles will always equal 90 degrees. 6-2(180)=360 360/4= 90

No. A square fits the classification of a quadrilateral and a parallelogram, but that isn't necessarily the definition. A rhombus is a quadrilateral and a parallelogram, and so are other irregular quadrilaterals. The correct definition would be a parallelogram and a quadrilateral with four right angles and all equal sides.

A quadrilateral has 4 sides whereas a polygon has many sides which includes a quadrilateral
