# How is a parallelogram different a rectangle?

These shapes are different in some ways:

• A parallelogram contains two pairs of congruent angles such that they are not adjacent to each other. A rectangle contains all four right angles.
• The diagonals of both shapes are formed differently from another.
• A parallelogram has a pair of congruent parallel slanted sides while a rectangle doesn't.
