Properties of Quadrilaterals

Any four sided polygon is a quadrilateral.

We’ll study special quadrilaterals in this section:

Trapezoid (U.S) or Trapezium (U.K)

Parallelogram

Rhombus

Rectangle

Square

Kite

slide2

A KITE

  • 2 pair of consecutive congruent sides
  • Opposite sides are NOT congruent
  • Diagonals are perpendicular
    • Notice only ONE diagonal

is bisected

properties of a trapezoid
Properties of a trapezoid
  • A trapezoid has one and only one pair of parallel sides.
properties of parallelograms

supplementary

Properties of parallelograms
  • Opposite sides of a parallelogram are parallel
  • Opposite sides are congruent
  • Opposite angles of a parallelograms are congruent.
  • Diagonals of a parallelogram bisect each other
  • Consecutive angles of a parallelogram are supplementary
properties of a rhombus rhombi
Properties of a Rhombus (Rhombi)
  • A rhombus is a parallelogram (this means it has ALL of the characteristics of a parallelogram)

In addition:

  • A rhombus has four congruent sides
  • The diagonals of a rhombus are perpendicular
  • The diagonals bisect

opposite angles

properties of rectangles
Properties of Rectangles
  • A rectangle is a parallelogram (this means it has ALL the characteristics of a parallelogram)

IN ADDITION:

  • Four right angles
  • The diagonals of a rectangle are congruent and they bisect each other
properties of squares
Properties of Squares
  • A square is a parallelogram, a rectangle, and a rhombus (It has ALL those characteristics!!!)
  • Has four congruent sides
  • Has four right angles
  • The diagonals of a square:
    • bisect each other
    • are congruent
    • are perpendicular.
    • Bisect opposite angles
practice problems study carefully and then take your test
Practice Problems. Study Carefully and then take your test.
  • Is this statement true or false. Explain your answer.
  • All rhombuses are squares
  • A rhombus has four congruent sides, but some may or may not have right angles. The statement is false.
is this statement true or false explain your answer
Is this statement true or false. Explain your answer.
  • Some trapezoids are squares
  • A square has two sets of parallel sides, but a trapezoid has only one set of parallel sides. The statement is false.
is this statement true or false explain your answer1
Is this statement true or false. Explain your answer.
  • Some parallelograms are squares.
  • A square has all the properties of a parallelogram, so some parallelograms do have equal sides and right angles; however, some do not. The statement is true.
is this statement true or false explain your answer2
Is this statement true or false. Explain your answer
  • All squares are rectangles
  • A square has four right angles. A rectangle also has four right angles. So a square is a rectangle. The statement is true.
is this statement true or false explain your answer3
Is this statement true or false. Explain your answer
  • All rectangles are squares
  • A square has four right angles and four (2 pairs of) congruent sides. A rectangle has four right angles and 2 (a pair of) congruent sides. The statement is false.
is this statement true or false explain your answer4
Is this statement true or false. Explain your answer
  • Some rectangles are squares.
  • If the rectangle has four congruent sides, then it is a square. The statement is true.
