# Does a rectangle have 4 sides of equal length?

Space and AstronomyWhat is a rectangle? A rectangle is a quadrilateral with 4 right angles. **A shape with four sides of equal length**. The shape has two sets of parallel sides and has four right angles.

## Does a rectangle have all sides the same length?

Definition: A rectangle is a quadrilateral with all four angles right angles. From this definition you can prove that the opposite sides are parallel and of the same lengths. A rectangle can be tall and thin, short and fat or **all the sides can have the same length**.

## How many equal length sides does a rectangle have?

A rectangle has **two pairs** of equal sides. It has four right angles (90°). The opposite sides are parallel.

## What has 4 equal sides and angles?

**A quadrilateral** is a polygon that has exactly four sides. (This also means that a quadrilateral has exactly four vertices, and exactly four angles.)

## Does a rhombus have 4 equal sides?

A rhombus is a special case of a parallelogram, and it is a four-sided quadrilateral. In a rhombus, opposite sides are parallel and the opposite angles are equal. Moreover, **all the sides of a rhombus are equal in length**, and the diagonals bisect each other at right angles.

## Do all parallelograms have 4 equal sides?

Rectangles, squares and rhombuses are all classified as parallelograms. The classic parallelogram looks like a slanted rectangle, but **any four-sided figure that has parallel and congruent pairs of sides can be classified as a parallelogram**. Parallelograms have six key properties that distinguish them from other shapes.

## What shape has 4 sides with different lengths?

Quadrilaterals are polygons with four sides (hence the beginning “quad”, which means “four”). A polygon with non-equal sides is called irregular, so the figure that you are describing is an **irregular quadrilateral**. This figure has side lengths of 1, 2, 3, and 4 respectively, so it is an irregular quadrilateral.

## What are 4 shapes that have 4 sides?

A quadrilateral is a four-sided two-dimensional shape. The following 2D shapes are all quadrilaterals: **square, rectangle, rhombus, trapezium, parallelogram and kite**.

## What is a 4 sided shape with equal sides called?

What is **a rhombus**? A rhombus is a quadrilateral with 4 equal sides.

## What is the name of a shape that has 4 sides?

quadrilateral

Definition: **A quadrilateral** is a polygon with 4 sides. A diagonal of a quadrilat- eral is a line segment whose end-points are opposite vertices of the quadrilateral.

## What 2D shape has 4 sides?

quadrilateral

**A quadrilateral** is a 2D shape with four sides.

## What shape has 4 sides 4 Corners?

Squares. Another shape that has 4 sides and 4 corners is **a square**. The difference is that all of the sides of a square are the same length. Squares come in all different sizes too.

## How many 4 sided shapes are there?

Polygons are closed shapes that have only straight lines, and polygons that have four sides and four angles are called quadrilaterals. There are **six** different types of quadrilaterals: parallelogram, rectangle, rhombus, square, kite, and trapezoid.

## What does a 4 sided shape look like?

(quad means four, lateral means side). A Quadrilateral has four-sides, it is **2-dimensional (a flat shape), closed (the lines join up), and has straight sides**.

The Trapezoid (UK: Trapezium)

Trapezoid | Trapezium | |
---|---|---|

In the UK: | NO parallel sides | a pair of parallel sides |

(the US and UK definitions are swapped over!) |

## What is a 4 sided shape but not a square?

Another quadrilateral that you might see is called **a rhombus**. All four sides of a rhombus are congruent. Its properties include that each pair of opposite sides is parallel, also making it a parallelogram.

## What 3d shape has 4 sides?

**The tetrahedron** is one kind of pyramid, which is a polyhedron with a flat polygon base and triangular faces connecting the base to a common point. In the case of a tetrahedron the base is a triangle (any of the four faces can be considered the base), so a tetrahedron is also known as a “triangular pyramid”.

## Is a square a rectangle?

**A square is a rectangle** because it possesses all the properties of a rectangle. These properties are: Interior angles measure 90^{∘} each. Opposite sides that are parallel and equal.

## What does a rectangle look like?

Video quote: *So let's review those properties here they are the opposite sides are congruent meaning the same length opposite angles are congruent opposite sides of parallel.*

## What is the rectangular shape?

A rectangle is **a 2D shape that has 4 sides, 4 corners, and 4 right angles**. Opposite sides of a rectangle shape are the same length, with one pair being longer than the other pair. If all the sides of a rectangle were the same size, it would be known as a square.

## What is the length of a rectangle?

Depending on what information you have available, there are many ways to calculate the length of a rectangle. If you have the area A and width w , its length w is determined as **h = A/w** . If you have the perimeter P and width w , its length can be found with h = P/2−w .

## How do you find the sides of a rectangle?

Video quote: *So 30 plus 30 is 60 92 minus 60 equals 32 that's how much of the perimeter I have to split between these two sides. So if I just divide that in half I'll get the width and 32 divided by 2 is 16.*

## What are the sides of a rectangle called?

**The longer side of the rectangle is known as the length and the shorter side is known as the width**.

## How do you find the length and width of a side?

1. Length is describing how long something is while width is describing how wide an object is. 2.In geometry, **length pertains to the longest side of the rectangle while width is the shorter side**.
