    Nico and Nia have snuck into a candy factory, where they set off a machine. Candy comes down a machine in different shapes, and they need to sort these into the correct boxes to avoid trouble! They learn about the rhombus shape, parallelogram shape, and trapezoid shape. This means they are able to avoid trouble because they now know the characteristics of a rhombus, the characteristics of a parallelogram, and the characteristics of a trapezoid!

    What is a Parallelogram Shape?

    Parallelogram definition geometry: A parallelogram is a quadrilateral with two pairs of parallel sides.

    Parallelogram Properties

    The properties of a parallelogram are:

    • Opposite angles are equal
    • Two pairs of parallel sides

    The following illustration shows a parallelogram example with properties.

    Questions and Answers about Parallelograms

    Below you will find some common questions about parallelograms, with answers!

    • What does a parallelogram look like? A parallelogram is a quadrilateral with opposite angles that are equal, and two pairs of parallel sides.
    • How many sides does a parallelogram have? A parallelogram is a quadrilateral, which means it has four sides.
    • Does a parallelogram have four right angles? A parallelogram CAN have four right angles, as long as all the properties of a parallelogram are met.

    What is a Rhombus Shape?

    Rhombus definition geometry: A rhombus is a quadrilateral with all sides equal in length.

    Rhombus Properties

    The properties of a rhombus are:

    • Opposite angles are equal
    • Four sides are ALL equal in length
    • Two pairs of parallel sides

    The following illustration shows a rhombus example with properties.

    Questions and Answers about Rhombuses

    Below you will find some common questions about rhombuses, with answers!

    • Is a rhombus a parallelogram? A rhombus is a parallelogram because it has two pairs of opposite sides.
    • How many sides does a rhombus have? A rhombus has four sides.
    • Is a rhombus a quadrilateral? A rhombus is a quadrilateral because it has four sides.
    • Does a rhombus have right angles? A rhombus CAN have right angles, but it doesn’t always need to have a right angle to be a rhombus.

    What is a Trapezoid Shape?

    Trapezoid definition geometry: A trapezoid is a quadrilateral with one pair of parallel sides.

    Trapezoid Properties

    The attributes of a trapezoid are:

    • One pair of parallel sides

    The following illustration shows a trapezoid example with properties.

    Questions and Answers about Trapezoids

    Below you will find some common questions about trapezoids, with answers!

    • Is a trapezoid a parallelogram? A trapezoid is not a parallelogram because it only has one pair of parallel sides, and a parallelogram must have two pairs of parallel sides.
    • How many pairs of parallel sides does a trapezoid have? A trapezoid has only one pair of parallel sides.
