What two dimensional figure has opposite side parallel and four right angles but not four equal sides?
The shape can only be a rectangle! A rectangle is a four-sided 2-dimentional figure, where every angle is a right angle, opposite sides are parallel, but the 4 sides are NOT equal.
quadrilateral--a four-sided figure, any length sides, any angles trapezoid--one pair of parallel sides, any length sides, any angles parallelogram--two pairs of parallel sides, opposite sides congruent, opposite angles congruent rectangle--two pairs of parallel sides, opposite sides congruent, all angles are right angles (90 degrees) rhombus--two pairs of parallel sides, all sides congruent, opposite angles congruent square--two pairs of parallel sides, all sides congruetn, all angles are right angles (90 degrees)
To be a parallelogram, the figure needs both sets of opposite sides to be parallel. A rectangle needs to have four right angles. This means the rectangle has to be a parallelogram. However, you can have opposite sides parallel without having right angles, as long as opposite angles are equal to each other,
If one set of opposite sides is equal and parallel then both are. The figure is a PARALLELOGRAM and the opposite angles of course must be equal. (see related links below) Parallelograms include rectangles (four right angles) and rhomboids (two opposite acute angles and two opposite obtuse angles). A square is a type of rectangle (all sides equal). A rhombus is a type of rhomboid (all sides equal). Although a square could be considered an…
I am a quadrilateral that has 4 right angles. My opposite sides are parallel and of equal length. What figure am I?
The following statements refer to both a rhombus and a square: -- The figure is a quadrilateral (has four sides). -- All four of the figure's sides are equal. -- Opposite sides of the figure are parallel. -- The figure has four angles. -- Opposite angles are equal. -- The sum of the interior angles is 360 degrees. Note that a square is one special case of a rhombus.
