Polygons – Parallelograms A polygon with four sides is called a quadrilateral. A special type of quadrilateral is called a parallelogram.

Polygons – Parallelograms A polygon with four sides is called a quadrilateral. A special type of quadrilateral is called a parallelogram. A Parallelogram is a four – sided figure where opposite sides are parallel. A C B D

Polygons – Parallelograms A polygon with four sides is called a quadrilateral. A special type of quadrilateral is called a parallelogram. A Parallelogram is a four – sided figure where opposite sides are parallel. A C B D So segments AD and BC are parallel.

Polygons – Parallelograms A polygon with four sides is called a quadrilateral. A special type of quadrilateral is called a parallelogram. A Parallelogram is a four – sided figure where opposite sides are parallel. A C B D So segments AD and BC are parallel. And segments AB and DC are parallel.

Polygons – Parallelograms A polygon with four sides is called a quadrilateral. A special type of quadrilateral is called a parallelogram. A Parallelogram is a four – sided figure where opposite sides are parallel. There are three SPECIAL parallelograms : Rhombus – all sides are equal with no right angles and opposite angles are equal
