The branch of mathematics dealing with shape, size, relative position of figures, and the properties of space is known as Geometry.

**Plane Geometry**

This wing of Geometry deals with flat shapes like lines, circles & triangles of two dimensions. This shapes can be drawn on a piece of paper.

**Solid Geometry**

It deals with three dimensional objects like cubes, prisms, cylinders & spheres

**List of Geometrical Shapes and their Features**

__Polygon__

A polygon is a closed figure of line segments. The name ‘poly’ refers to multiple. Hence, in a polygon, ‘n’ number of lines can intersect and connect to form a polygon.

__Triangle__

A triangle is a three sided polygon whose sum of internal angle always sums to 180 degrees. There are three types of triangles depending on the length of their sides, namely – Equilateral triangle, Isosceles triangle and Scalene triangle.

__Square__

Square is a quadrilateral figure formed by four equal sides and four right angles.

__Rectangle__

It is a four sided polygon with equal opposite sides and all right angles.

__Circle__

A circle is a closed shape. From a certain point called centre, all points of a circle are of same consistent distance.

__Cube__

A cube is a three-dimensional solid object bounded by 6 square faces, with 3 of the sides meeting at a vertex.

__Quadrilateral__

In plane geometry, a quadrilateral is a polygon with four edges and four vertices. Irregular quadrilateral, Trapezoid, Isosceles Trapezoid, Parallelogram, Kite, Rhombus, Rectangle & Square are few most common examples of a Quadrilateral.
