What is Quadrilateral,Rectangle,Square,Rhombus,Parallelogram,Trapezium?

Definition: A quadrilateral is a figure closed by four line segments. The line segments are the sides of the quadrilateral.

Or, A quadrilateral is a plane figure bounded by four straight .

* Sum of four interior angles of a quadrilateral is 4 right angles or 3600.
Diagonal: The straight line which joins the opposite angular points in a quadrilateral is called a diagonal.
* The sum of two diagonals of a quadrilateral is less than it’s perimeter.

Parallelogram: The quadrilateral whose opposite sides are parallel is called a parallelogram.

Properties of parallelogram:

  1. Opposite sides are equal and parallel to each other .
  2. Opposite angles are equal.
  3. Adjacent sides are unequal.
  4. Sum of adjacent of parallelogram 1800.
  5. The diagonals of a parallelogram are not equal.
  6. The diagonals of a parallelogram bisect each other.

Mensuration:

  1. Formula of area of a parallelogram = Base × Height.
  2. Formula of perimeter of a parallelogram = 2(Length + breadth).

 

Rectangle: A rectangle is a parallelogram with one right angle.

Or, the parallelogram one of whose angle is a right is called a rectangle.

Properties of a rectangle:

  1. Both pairs of opposite sides of a rectangle are equal.
  2. All the angles of a rectangle are equal and right angle.
  3. The diagonals of a rectangle are equal.
  4. The diagonals of a rectangle bisect each other.

Mensuration:

  1. Area of a rectangle = Length × Breadth.
  2. Perimeter of a rectangle = 2(Length + breadth).
  3. Diagonal of a rectangle =

Rhombus: A rhombus is a parallelogram with equal sides.

Or, A rhombus is a parallelogram with two adjacent sides equal.

  1. All the sides of a rhombus are equal.
  2. Both pairs of opposite angles of a rhombus are equal.
  3. None of the angles of a rhombus is a right angle.
  4. The diagonals of a rhombus are not equal.
  5. The diagonals of a rhombus bisect each other at right angle.
  6. Sum of adjacent of a rhombus 1800.

Mensuration:

  1. Area of a rhombus = ½×Product of length of diagonals.
  2. Perimeter of a rhombus = 4× Length of one side.

Square: A square is a rectangle that has two adjacent sides equal.

Or, a square is a rectangle with equal side.

Properties of a square:

  1. All the sides of a square are equal.
  2. All the angles of a square are equal and right angle.
  3. The diagonals of a square are equal.
  4. The diagonals of a square bisect each other at right angle.

Mensuration:

  1. Area of a square = (Length of one side)2
  2. Perimeter of a square = 4× Length of one side.
  3. Diagonal of a square: √2× Length of one side

Trapezium: The quadrilateral only two of whose side are parallel is called a trapezium.

* One of parallel sides of a trapezium is called the base and of the none parallel sides are called the lean sides or oblique sides.

* If two non non-parallel sides of a trapezium are equal, it is called an isosceles trapezium.

* The parallel sides of a trapezium cannot be equal.
