### 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.

###### Asked in Geometry

### Why are all rectangles examples of parallelograms but all parallelograms are not rectangles?

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,

###### Asked in Geometry

### What is a four sided figure with opposite sides equal and parallel and opposite angles equal?

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 equiangular
rhombus, it is usually considered a separate type of...
