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

Which of the following shapes is NOT a quadrilateral?

Rectangle

Triangle

Square

Kite

Rhombus

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

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

The number of sides they each have

Their angle measurments

Their side lengths

The sum of their angles

Their color

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

What two shapes can a square be classified as?

Trapezoid and Rhombus

Rectangle and Triangle

Rectangle and Rhombas

Rhombus and Triangle

Trapezoid and Triangle

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 #1 : How To Find The Area Of A Parallelogram

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

The color

The volume

The area

The length of the sides

The number of sides

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 #2 : How To Find The Area Of A Parallelogram

Which two shapes have to have right angles?

Rectangle and Parallelogram

Rectangle and Rhombus

Square and Rectangle

Square and Rhombus

Square 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

Trapezoid

Hexagon

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 #1 : 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

Rectangle

Kite

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 #7 : 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

A trapezoid has to have equal side lengths

There is no difference between them

An isosceles trapezoid has to have equal base angles

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

Which shape is NOT a quadrilateral?

Rectangle

Rhombus

Circle

Kite

Trapezoid

Circle

Explanation:

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

### Example Question #3 : 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.

An isosceles triangle has to have a angle and a right 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.

A right triangle has to have a angle and an isosceles triangle has to have equal, base angles.
By definition, a right triangle has to have one right angle, or a angle, and an isosceles triangle has equal base angles and two equal side lengths.
