#### Various Types of Quadrilaterals

In this section, we shall study about various types of quadrilaterals.

##### (i) Trapezium

A quadrilateral having exactly one pair of parallel sides, is called a trapezium.

##### (ii) Parallelogram

A quadrilateral is a parallelogram if it’s both pairs of opposite sides are parallel and equal.

## (iii) Rhombus

A parallelogram having all sides equal is called a rhombus.

##### (iv) Rectangle

A parallelogram who’s each angle is a right angle, is called a rectangle.

##### (v) Square

A square is a rectangle with a pair of equal adjacent sides.

In other words, a parallelogram having all sides equal and each angle equal to a right angle, is called a square.

### Class 6 Maths Exercise 5.7 Important Questions for Practice

##### Name each of the following parallelograms: (i) All sides are equal. (ii) Each angle is right angle. (iii) One pair of sides is parallel and non-parallel sides are equal.

(i) A parallelogram in which all sides are equal called Rhombus.

(ii) A parallelogram who’s each angle is a right angle is called a rectangle.

(iii) A parallelogram whose One pair of sides is parallel and non-parallel sides are equal is called trapezium

##### What do all Quadrilaterals have in common?

There are many different kinds of quadrilaterals, but all have several things in common:

All of them have four sides, are coplanar, have two diagonals, and the sum of their four interior angles equals 360 degrees.

##### (vi) Kite

A quadrilateral is a kite if it has two pairs of equal adjacent sides and unequal opposite sides.

### Class 6 Maths Exercise 5.7 Extra Questions with Answer

##### What are special Quadrilaterals?

Many special quadrilaterals have special attributes. A trapezoid has exactly one pair of parallel sides. A parallelogram has two pairs of equal parallel sides. A rectangle is a parallelogram with 4 right angles. A rhombus is a parallelogram with 4 equal sides.

##### How many elements are required to construct a unique quadrilateral?

Thus a quadrilateral has 10 elements (4 sides, 4 angles and 2 diagonals) or measurements. To construct a unique quadrilateral, we need to know 5 measurements (elements).

##### How do you classify quadrilaterals?

Quadrilaterals: Classification

A quadrilateral is a polygon with four sides.

A rectangle is a parallelogram with four right angles, so all rectangles are also parallelograms and quadrilaterals.

A rhombus is a parallelogram with four congruent sides.

A trapezoid is a quadrilateral with exactly one pair of parallel sides.
