# What is a quadrilateral that has two pairs of congruent sides and two pairs of parallel sides?

## What is a quadrilateral that has two pairs of congruent sides and two pairs of parallel sides?

Parallelogram
Parallelogram: A quadrilateral that has two pairs of parallel sides. Rhombus: A quadrilateral with four congruent sides; a rhombus is both a kite and a parallelogram. Rectangle: A quadrilateral with four right angles; a rectangle is a type of parallelogram.

## What do you call a quadrilateral with two pairs of parallel sides?

A parallelogram is a quadrilateral with 2 pairs of parallel sides. In these figures, sides of the same color are parallel to each other.

Is a quadrilateral with one pair of parallel sides a parallelogram?

A quadrilateral with one pair of parallel sides is a trapezoid. If it has two pairs of parallel sides it is a parallelogram, but parallelograms are also trapezoids in the same way that dogs are also mammals. A parallelogram has two pairs of congruent sides.

### What are pairs of congruent sides?

When two pairs of corresponding sides and the corresponding angles between them are congruent, the triangles are congruent. When two pairs of corresponding angles and the corresponding sides between them are congruent, the triangles are congruent.

### What is a congruent quadrilateral?

By definition, two quadrilaterals are congruent if four corresponding. sides and four corresponding interior angles are congruent– that’s a total. of eight congruences. each congruence theorem says that you can guar- antee congruence with some subset of that list.

There are many different types of quadrilaterals and they all share the similarity of of having four sides, two diagonals and the sum of their interior angles is 360 degrees. They all have relationships to one another, but they are not all exactly alike and have different properties.

#### Is a kite a trapezoid?

A kite is a quadrilateral with two pairs of adjacent sides of identical length. A trapezoid (British: trapezium) can be a kite, but only if is also a rhombus. An isosceles trapezoid can be a kite, but only if it is also a square.

#### How many congruent sides does a quadrilateral have?

four congruent sides
QuadrilateralA quadrilateral is a closed figure with four sides and four vertices. RectangleA rectangle is a quadrilateral with four right angles. RhombusA rhombus is a quadrilateral with four congruent sides. TrapezoidA trapezoid is a quadrilateral with exactly one pair of parallel opposite sides.

All parallelograms are quadrilaterals, so if it is a parallelogram, it is also a quadrilateral. The correct answer is that all trapezoids are quadrilaterals.

## Why a quadrilateral that has two pairs of congruent side is not always a parallelogram?

So called kite and dart quadrilaterals have two pairs of congruent sides. Each pair shares a vertex. If opposite sides are congruent, we always deal with parallelogram.

## How do you find congruent quadrilaterals?

Generally, you have to put sides an interior angles of one quadrilateral in correspondence with sides and angle of another and to prove that all corresponding pairs of sides and angles are congruent.

What is a parallelogram with four congruent sides?

A rhombus is a parallelogram with four congruent sides.
