2D Shapes - Quadrilaterals

Quadrilaterals are 2 dimensional shapes which have four sides, four angles and four vertices. The four angles of a quadrilateral always add up to 360°.

_________________________________________________________

Square

4 sides of equal length

4 vertices

4 equal angles

The angles of a quadrilateral always add up to 360°, therefore each angle of a square is,
360 ÷ 4 = 90°

Data


Rectangle

2 pairs of equal sides

4 vertices

4 equal angles

The angles of a quadrilateral always add up to 360°, therefore each angle of a rectangle is,
360 ÷ 4 = 90°

Data


Rhombus

4 equal sides

Opposite sides are parallel

Opposite angles are equal

(like a pushed over square)

Data


Parallelogram

2 pairs of equal sides

Opposite sides are parallel

Opposite angles are equal

(like a pushed over rectangle)

Data


Trapezium

1 pair of parallel sides of different lengths

 

Data


Kite

2 pairs of equal sides next to each other

No parallel sides

1 pair of opposite equal angles

Data

Remember

All the angles of a quadrilateral add up to 360°
