Try drawing a quadrilateral, and measure the angles. They should add to 360°
- A polygon’s diagonals are line segments from one corner to another, but not the sides.
Types of Quadrilaterals
There are special types of quadrilateral:
Some types are also included in the definition of other types! For example a square, rhombus and rectangle are also parallelograms.
