Opposite sides are parallel, and opposite angles are equal (it is a Parallelogram). And the diagonals “p” and “q” of a rhombus bisect each other at right angles.

## What do a parallelogram look like?

Parallelograms are shapes that have four sides with two pairs of sides that are parallel. The four shapes that meet the requirements of a parallelogram are square, rectangle, rhombus, and rhomboid. A rhombus looks like **a slanted square**, and a rhomboid looks like a slanted rectangle.

## What is an example of a rhombus?

A rhombus is a diamond-shaped quadrilateral that has all four sides equal. We can see rhombus-shaped figures in our day-to-day lives. Some of the real-life examples of a rhombus are shown in the below-given figure: **a diamond, a kite, and an earring, etc**.

## Are all 4 sides of a rhombus equal?

In plane Euclidean geometry, a rhombus (plural rhombi or rhombuses) is a quadrilateral whose **four sides all have the same length**. Another name is equilateral quadrilateral, since equilateral means that all of its sides are equal in length. … A rhombus with right angles is a square.

## Can a rhombus be a rectangle?

A rectangle is a parallelogram with all its interior angles being 90 degrees. A rhombus is a parallelogram with all its sides equal. This means that for a rectangle to be a rhombus, its sides must be equal. … **A rectangle can be a rhombus only if has extra properties which would make it a square**.

## Is every kite a rhombus?

A kite is a quadrilateral whose four sides can be grouped into two pairs of equal-length sides that are adjacent to each other and only one pair of opposite angles are equal. … All sides of a rhombus are equal and opposite angles are equal. So, all kites are not rhombuses.

## What makes a rhombus special?

One of the two characteristics that make a rhombus unique is that **its four sides are equal in length, or congruent**. … If you have a quadrilateral with two pairs of parallel sides, you do not necessarily have a rhombus; you might have a parallelogram, or you could have a rhombus if all four sides are the same length.

## What are the 4 types of parallelograms?

- Rhombus (or diamond, rhomb, or lozenge) — A parallelogram with four congruent sides.
- Rectangle — A parallelogram with four congruent interior angles.
- Square — A parallelogram with four congruent sides and four congruent interior angles.

## Do all parallelograms have 4 equal sides Yes or no?

Explanation: A Quadrilateral is only a **4 sided figure & has no specific features**, whereas a Parallelogram is a 4 sided figure with opposite sides parallel and equal, opposite angles equal and adjacent angles in a linear pair. A Quadrilateral is not a Parallelogram. A Parallelogram is a Quadrilateral.

## What shape is always a rhombus?

**A square** is a quadrilateral with four right angles and equal side lengths. Looking at the definitions, a square is already guaranteed to be a rhombus.

## What are the 4 properties of a rhombus?

- Opposite angles are equal.
- All sides are equal and, opposite sides are parallel to each other.
- Diagonals bisect each other perpendicularly.
- Sum of any two adjacent angles is 180°

## How do you identify a rhombus?

**If all sides of a quadrilateral are congruent**, then it’s a rhombus (reverse of the definition). If the diagonals of a quadrilateral bisect all the angles, then it’s a rhombus (converse of a property).

## Does a rhombus have 4 90 degree angles?

No, **because a rhombus does not have to have 4 right angles**. A square has got 4 sides of equal length and 4 right angles (right angle = 90 degrees). A Rhombus has got 4 sides of equal length and opposite sides are parallel and angles are equal.

## Is a rectangle a trapezoid yes or no?

Under the inclusive definition, all parallelograms (including rhombuses, rectangles and squares) are **trapezoids**.

## What is difference between rhombus and rectangle?

**All sides are equal** in rhombus whereas in rectangle opposite sides are equal.

## Is a square a rhombus?

Square is **a rhombus** because as rhombus all the sides of a square are equal in length. Even, the diagonals of both square and rhombus are perpendicular to each other and bisect the opposite angles. Therefore, we can say the square is a rhombus.
