 In Geometry, the shapes or objects are classified based on the number of sides. The different classification of shapes are:

• Triangle ( 3-sides)
• Pentagon (5-sides)
• Hexagon (6-sides)
• Heptagon (7-sides)
• Octagon (8-sides) and so on.

A quadrilateral is a plane figure that has four sides or edges, and also have four corners or vertices. Quadrilaterals will typically be of standard shapes with four sides like rectangle, square, trapezoid, and kite or irregular and uncharacterized as shown below: There are many types of quadrilaterals. As the word ‘Quad’ means four, all these types of a quadrilateral have four sides, and the sum of angles of these shapes is 360 degrees.

1. Trapezium
2. Parallelogram
3. Squares
4. Rectangle
5. Rhombus
6. Kite Another way to classify the types of quadrilaterals are:

1. Convex Quadrilaterals: Both the diagonals of a quadrilateral are completely contained within a figure.
2. Concave Quadrilaterals: At least one of the diagonals lies partly are entirely outside of the figure.

The images of these quadrilaterals are given below: Area of the quadrilateral is the total space occupied by the figure. The area formula for the different quadrilaterals are given below:

 Area of a Parallelogram Base x Height Area of a Rectangle Length x Width Area of a Square Side x Side Area of a Rhombus (1/2) x Diagonal 1 x Diagonal 2 Area of a Kite 1/2 x Diagonal 1 x Diagonal 2

Let us understand in a better way with the help of an example: • Four sides: AB, BC, CD, and DA
• Four vertices: Points A, B, C, and D
• Four angles: ∠ABC, ∠BCD, ∠CDA, and ∠DAB
• ∠A and ∠B are adjacent angles
• ∠A and ∠C are the opposite angles
• AB and CD are the opposite sides
• AB and BC are the adjacent sides

A quadrilateral is a 4-sided plane figure. Below are some important properties of quadrilaterals :

• Every quadrilateral has 4 vertices, 4 angles, and 4 sides
• The total of its interior angles = 360 degrees

Square Properties

• All the sides of the square are of equal measure
• The sides are parallel to each other
• All the interior angles of a square are at 90 degrees (i.e., right angle)
• The diagonals of a square perpendicular bisect each other

Rectangle Properties

• The opposite sides of a rectangle are of equal length
• The opposite sides are parallel to each other
• All the interior angles of a rectangle are at 90 degrees.
• The diagonals of a rectangle bisect each other.

Rhombus Properties

• All the four sides of a rhombus are of the same measure
• The opposite sides of the rhombus are parallel to each other
• The opposite angles are of the same measure
• The sum of any two adjacent angles of a rhombus is equal to 180 degrees
• The diagonals perpendicularly bisect each other

Parallelogram Properties

• The opposite side of the parallelogram are of the same length
• The opposite sides are parallel to each other
• The diagonals of a parallelogram bisect each other
• The opposite angles are of equal measure
• The sum of two adjacent angles of a parallelogram is equal to 180 degrees

Properties of Trapezium

• Only one pair of the opposite side of a trapezium is parallel to each other
• The two adjacent sides of a trapezium are supplementary (180 degrees)
• The diagonals of a trapezium bisect each other in the same ratio

Properties of Kite

• The pair of adjacent sides of a kite are of the same length
• The largest diagonal of a kite bisect the smallest diagonal
• Only one pair of opposite angles are of the same measure.
