and all the sides are the same length. All squares are
quadrilaterals and parallelograms.

### What shape has 2 opposite sides parallel?

Any shape that is not a triangle may have 2 parallel sides,
although regular polygons only have parallel sides when the
number of sides is even. For a quadrilateral, a trapezoid
(UK trapezium) has 1 set of parallel sides and a
parallelogram (either a rhombus, rectangle, or square) has 2
sets of parallel sides.
