## What is a shape with 1 parallel sides?

A trapezoid is a quadrilateral with exactly one pair of parallel sides.

**Does a polygon have 1 pair of parallel sides?**

Trapezoids have only one pair of parallel sides; parallelograms have two pairs of parallel sides. A trapezoid can never be a parallelogram.

**Which polygon has only one pair of parallel lines?**

trapezoid

A quadrilateral that has only one pair of parallel sides is called a trapezoid.

### What is a polygon with parallel lines?

We know that many types of quadrilaterals, such as the trapezoids, a rhombus, rectangles, and all the regular polygons (except for the triangle), have parallel sides. One other shape has parallel sides: the parallelogram. The parallelogram is a special type of quadrilateral.

**What is exactly 1 set of parallel segments?**

A trapezoid has at least one pair of parallel sides. It may have two! You can easily find other definitions for a trapezoid which indicate it only has ONE pair of parallel sides.

**What does exactly 1 set of parallel segments look like?**

A quadrilateral with one pair of parallel sides is a trapezoid. If it has two pairs of parallel sides it is a parallelogram, but parallelograms are also trapezoids in the same way that dogs are also mammals. A parallelogram has two pairs of congruent sides.

## What has 1 pair of parallel sides and no right angles?

A quadrilateral is a 4 sided closed figure. A shape with four sides. The shape has one set of parallel sides and does not have any right angles.

**What is at least 1 set of parallel segments?**

A trapezoid has at least one pair of parallel sides.

**What is a pair of parallel sides?**

Definition of Parallel Two sides or lines are parallel if they are lines that are always the same distance from each other and will never intersect or touch.

### Which shape is a trapezoid with only 1 pair of parallel sides?

Some define a trapezoid as a quadrilateral having only one pair of parallel sides (the exclusive definition), thereby excluding parallelograms. Others define a trapezoid as a quadrilateral with at least one pair of parallel sides (the inclusive definition), making the parallelogram a special type of trapezoid.

**What shape has 1 pair of adjacent sides that are perpendicular?**

Rectangles are parallelograms with perpendicular sides Each pair of opposite sides is parallel, and adjacent sides are perpendicular. This means that every angle in a rectangle is a right (90∘) angle.

**Does a trapezoid have 1 pair of equal sides?**

A trapezoid is a quadrilateral with one pair of opposite sides parallel. It can have right angles (a right trapezoid), and it can have congruent sides (isosceles), but those are not required.
