## Has two sides that are parallel and two sides that are not parallel?

In India and Britain, they say trapezium ; in America, trapezium usually means a quadrilateral with no parallel sides.) An isosceles trapezoid is a trapezoid whose non-parallel sides are congruent. A kite is a quadrilateral with exactly two pairs of adjacent congruent sides.

What has two pairs of parallel opposite sides?

A parallelogram is a quadrilateral with 2 pairs of parallel opposite and equal sides. Similarly, the opposite angles in a parallelogram are equal in measure.

Which two shapes could have 2 pairs of parallel sides and no right angles?

A parallelogram has two parallel pairs of opposite sides.

### What shape does not have parallel lines?

Many shapes do not have parallel lines. One would need more information to give a coherent answer. There are shapes in 2-D, a square, for example, and shapes in 3-D, a cube for example, which have parallel sides. An example of a shape with no parallel lines is an equilateral triangle or a tetrahedron in the 3-D case.

### What quadrilateral has two parallel sides?

A quadrilateral with two sides parallel is called a trapezoid, whereas a quadrilateral with opposite pairs of sides parallel is called a parallelogram.

What figure has one pair of parallel sides?

A trapezoid is a quadrilateral with exactly one pair of parallel sides (the parallel sides are called bases). The following figure shows a trapezoid to the left, and an isosceles trapezoid on the right.

Does square have 2 parallel sides?

A square has two pairs of parallel sides, four right angles, and all four sides are equal. It is also a rectangle and a parallelogram. A rhombus is defined as a parallelogram with four equal sides.
