Is a rhombus a quadrilateral or a trapezoid?

**Parallelogram**: A quadrilateral that has two pairs of parallel sides. Rhombus: A quadrilateral with four congruent sides; a rhombus is both a kite and a parallelogram.

**Why is a rhombus not a trapezoid?**

A trapezoid is a quadrilateral with at least one pair of parallel sides (called bases), while a rhombus must have two pairs of parallel sides (it is a special case of a parallelogram). The second difference is that

the sides of a rhombus are all equal, while a trapezoid may have all 4 sides of a different length.

__Is a rhombus an isosceles trapezoid?__

If a quadrilateral is known to be a trapezoid, it is not sufficient just to check that the legs have the same length in order to know that it is an **isosceles trapezoid**, since a rhombus is a special case of a trapezoid with legs of equal length, but is not an isosceles trapezoid as it lacks a line of symmetry through

## What are 3 names for a trapezoid?

## Is a quadrilateral a trapezoid?

A trapezoid is a quadrilateral with exactly one pair of parallel sides. (There may be some confusion about this word depending on which country you're in. In India and Britain, they say trapezium ; in America, trapezium usually means a quadrilateral with no parallel sides.)

## Is an isosceles trapezoid a trapezoid?

An isosceles trapezoid is a trapezoid with congruent base angles and congruent non-parallel sides. A trapezoid is a quadrilateral with only one of its sides parallel. An isosceles trapezoid has many interesting properties that make it unique and help us differentiate it from the other quadrilaterals.

## Is a diamond a trapezoid yes or no?

Diamond, Rhombus, and Trapezoid are all quadrilaterals, which are polygons with four sides. While rhombus and trapezium are properly defined in mathematics, diamond (or diamond shape) is a layman's term for rhombus. A quadrilateral with all sides equal are in length is known as a rhombus.

## Is rhombus a kite?

In general, any quadrilateral with perpendicular diagonals, one of which is a line of symmetry, is a kite. Every rhombus is a kite, and any quadrilateral that is both a kite and parallelogram is a rhombus.

## Is rectangle a rhombus?

A rectangle is a rhombus. A square is a parallelogram. A parallelogram is regular.

## What is a quadrilateral that is not a trapezoid or rhombus?

Explanation: Kite: two pairs of adjacent sides are of equal length.

## What shape is not a rhombus?

If you have a quadrilateral with only one pair of parallel sides, you definitely do not have a rhombus (because two of its sides cannot be the same length). You have a trapezoid.

No. Any other shape can have four sides, but if it does not have (at least) **two parallel sides**, it cannot be a trapezoid. An easy counterexample is a boomerang, which has exactly four sides, but none of them are parallel.
