## What is parallelogram images?

A parallelogram is a quadrilateral whose opposites sides are parallel. This parallelogram is spanned by the vectors u and v with one vertex at the point a.

## What shapes are a parallelograms?

Parallelograms are shapes that have four sides with two pairs of sides that are parallel. The four shapes that meet the requirements of a parallelogram are square, rectangle, rhombus, and rhomboid.

**Are all parallelograms squares?**

All squares are not parallelograms. The opposite sides of a parallelogram are of equal length hence squares with all sides equal are parallelograms.

**How do you explain parallelogram to a child?**

A parallelogram is a shape with four sides, and the sides opposite each other are parallel. This means that they go in the same direction and will never cross over each other, like the rails on train tracks!

### How do you know if it is a parallelogram?

Each pair of opposite angles has the same measure. Therefore, they are congruent. If both pairs of opposite angles are congruent, the quadrilateral is a parallelogram.

### Does parallelogram have 4 equal sides?

A parallelogram is a quadrilateral with 2 pairs of parallel sides. In these figures, sides of the same color are parallel to each other. A shape with four sides of equal length. The shape has two sets of parallel sides and does not have right angles.

**How many sides does a parallelogram have?**

4Parallelogram / Number of edges

**Are all parallelograms rectangles?**

Since it has two sets of parallel sides and two pairs of opposite sides that are congruent, a rectangle has all of the properties of a parallelogram. That’s why a rectangle is always a parallelogram. However, a parallelogram is not always a rectangle.

#### What are some examples of a parallelogram?

Rhomboid – A quadrilateral whose opposite sides are parallel and adjacent sides are unequal,and whose angles are not right angles

**What are the different types of parallelograms?**

Rectangle. A rectangle is a parallelogram with two pairs of equal and parallel opposite sides and four right angles.

**What is true of all parallelograms?**

Parallelogram is one which have opposite sides are equal ( same) and opposite angles are same. 4 equal sides are square or rhombus so they are parallelogram, but all parallelogram is not square or rhombus. Not necessarily. Opposite sides must be equal, but not adjacent sides.
