A parallelogram: .
is a quadrilateral (a four sided polygon) .
has opposite sides parallel and of equal length .
has opposite angles equal The area of a parallelogram …is calculated by multiplying one sidelength by the perpendicular distance between that side and the sideparallel to it. A rectangle is a special parallelogram in that all four angles areequal and are right angles (90Â°). A rhombus is a special parallelogram in that all four sides are ofequal length. A square is a special parallelogram in that all four angles areequal (and are right angles) and all four sides are equal inlength. (MORE)

All rectangles are parallelograms, but not all parallelograms are rectangles. A parallelogram is a four-sided shape in which the opposite sides are parallel. A …rectangle (and a square) is a four-sided shape in which the opposite sides are parallel and all corners are 90 degrees. The corners of a parallelogram can be 90 degrees but can also be different angles. Therefore, rectangles and squares are subsets of a parallelogram. (MORE)

A rectangle has three rules: -2 pairs of parallel sides -four 90 degree angles -2 pairs of congruent sides A parallelogram has three rules: -2 pairs of parallel sides - 2 pai…rs of congruent angles -2 pairs of congruent sides The only difference is that a rectangle has 90 degree angles, which a parallelogram doesn't have. That's why a parallelogram can't be a rectangle. A rectangle follows all the rules of being a parallelogram, so it can be a parallelogram. (MORE)

A parallelogram is a quadrilateral in which each of two sets of opposite sides consists of two parallel lines (or for math purists I should say, parallel line segments).
