In geometry, a quadrilateral is defined as a polygon with four sides and four vertices. The word quadrilateral is derived from the two Latin words Quadri refers to a variant of four, and the word latus means the sides. The total sum of interior angles quadrilateral is equal to 360 degrees. Square, rhombus, rectangle, trapezium, and parallelograms are called a special type of quadrilaterals.
The formulas used for finding an area of any of the quadrilaterals is A = b * h
Properties of Quadrilateral
- Every quadrilateral has 4 vertices and 4 sides enclosing 4 angles.
- The sum of its interior angles is 360 degrees.
- A quadrilateral which has all 4 equal sides and 4 angles as 90 degrees is a square.
- A quadrilateral which has opposite sides equal and all 4 angles as 90 degrees is a rectangle.
