### Example Question #6 : How To Find The Area Of A Parallelogram

Which of the following shapes is NOT a quadrilateral?

Triangle

Rhombus

Square

Rectangle

Kite

Triangle

Explanation:

A quadrilateral is any two-dimensional shape with   sides. The only shape listed that does not have  sides is a triangle.

### Example Question #7 : How To Find The Area Of A Parallelogram

What is the main difference between a square and a rectangle?

Their color

The sum of their angles

Their angle measurments

The number of sides they each have

Their side lengths

Their side lengths

Explanation:

The only difference between a rectangle and a square is their side lengths. A square has to have  equal side lengths, but the opposite side lengths of a rectangle only have to be equal.

### Example Question #8 : How To Find The Area Of A Parallelogram

What two shapes can a square be classified as?

Rectangle and Triangle

Rectangle and Rhombas

Rhombus and Triangle

Trapezoid and Triangle

Trapezoid and Rhombus

Rectangle and Rhombas

Explanation:

A square can also be a rectangle and a rhombus because a rectangle has to have at least  sets of equal side lengths and a rhombus has to have  equal side lengths, like a square, and at least  sets of equal angles.

### Example Question #9 : How To Find The Area Of A Parallelogram

What is the main difference between a triangle and a rectangle?

The length of the sides

The number of sides

The volume

The area

The color

The number of sides

Explanation:

Out of the choices given, the only characteristic used to describe shapes is the number of sides. A triangle has  sides and a rectangle has  sides.

### Example Question #63 : Area Of Polygons

Which two shapes have to have  right angles?

Square and Rhombus

Square and Parallelogram

Square and Rectangle

Rectangle and Rhombus

Rectangle and Parallelogram

Square and Rectangle

Explanation:

By definition, the only two quadrilaterals that have to have  right angles, are the square and the rectangle.

### Example Question #1 : Understand Categories And Subcategories Of Two Dimensional Figures: Ccss.Math.Content.5.G.B.3

Which of the shapes is NOT a quadrilateral?

Square

Hexagon

Trapezoid

Rhombus

Rectangle

Hexagon

Explanation:

A quadrilateral is a  sided shape. The only shape listed that does not have  sides is a hexagon, which has  sides.

### Example Question #2 : Understand Categories And Subcategories Of Two Dimensional Figures: Ccss.Math.Content.5.G.B.3

Which of the following shapes is NOT a parallelogram?

Rhombus

Square

Kite

Rectangle

Kite

Explanation:

A rectangle, square, and rhombus can all be classified as a parallelogram because each shape has opposite side lengths that are equal. A kite does not.

### Example Question #3 : Understand Categories And Subcategories Of Two Dimensional Figures: Ccss.Math.Content.5.G.B.3

What is the difference between a trapezoid and a isosceles trapezoid?

A trapezoid has to have equal base angles

There is no difference between them

An isosceles trapezoid has to have equal base angles

An isosceles trapezoid has to have equal side lengths

A trapezoid has to have equal side lengths

An isosceles trapezoid has to have equal base angles

Explanation:

By definition, an isosceles trapezoid has to have  equal base angles, but a trapezoid does not have to have equal angles.

### Example Question #4 : Understand Categories And Subcategories Of Two Dimensional Figures: Ccss.Math.Content.5.G.B.3

Which shape is NOT a quadrilateral?

Trapezoid

Kite

Circle

Rhombus

Rectangle

Circle

Explanation:

A quadrilateral has to have  sides, a circle does not have any sides.

### Example Question #4 : Understand Categories And Subcategories Of Two Dimensional Figures: Ccss.Math.Content.5.G.B.3

What is the main difference between a right triangle and an isosceles triangle?

A right triangle has to have a  angle and an isosceles triangle has to have equal, base angles.

A right triangle has to have a  angle and an isosceles triangle has to have  equal, base angles.

A right triangle has to have a  angle and an isosceles triangle has to have  equal, base angles.

A right triangle has to have a  angle and an isosceles triangle has to have  equal, base angles.

An isosceles triangle has to have a  angle and a right triangle has to have  equal, base angles.
