# Classification of a rhombus

## What are the 4 properties of a rhombus?

Properties of Rhombus

**The opposite sides of a rhombus are parallel**. Opposite angles of a rhombus are equal. In a rhombus, diagonals bisect each other at right angles. Diagonals bisect the angles of a rhombus.

## Is a rhombus classified as a parallelogram?

Also,

**every rhombus is considered as a parallelogram**but the converse is always not true. Parallelogram: A parallelogram is a flat-shaped figure. It has four sides. The pair of opposite faces/sides of a parallelogram are parallel and congruent to each other.## What is the classification of rectangle?

A rectangle is

**a quadrilateral**because it has four sides, and it is a parallelogram because it has two pairs of parallel, congruent sides. All four angles are right angles.## What is the classification of a parallelogram?

Classifying Parallelograms

Rectangles, rhombuses (also called rhombi) and squares are all more specific versions of parallelograms, also called special parallelograms. A quadrilateral is a rectangle if and only if it has four right (congruent) angles.

## Can a rhombus be classified as a square?

This is always true. Squares are quadrilaterals with 4 congruent sides. Since rhombuses are quadrilaterals with 4 congruent sides,

**squares are by definition also rhombuses**.## Is a rhombus always a quadrilateral?

Rhombus.

**A rhombus is a quadrilateral**whose all four sides are equal in length and opposite sides are parallel to each other. However, the angles are not equal to 90Â°.## Is a rhombus rectangle?

**A rhombus is a special case of a rectangle**. Since, we know, that the diagonals of a rhombus intersect at equal angles whereas the diagonals of a rectangle are equal in length. Upon connecting the midpoints of the sides of a rhombus, a rectangle is formed.

## How would you classify a rhombus with 4 congruent angles?

A rhombus has four congruent sides and

**a square**has four congruent sides and angles. Therefore, a rhombus is a square when it has congruent angles.## What classifies a trapezoid?

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.## Is parallelogram a rhombus True or false?

**Yes , it is true**that rhombus is a parallelogram……

## Is a rhombus a parallelogram or equilateral?

A rhombus is a closed two-dimensional plane figure.

**It is considered a special parallelogram**, and because of its unique properties, it gets an individual identity as a quadrilateral. A rhombus is also called an equilateral quadrilateral since all of its sides are equal in length.## Can a rhombus be classified as a rectangle?

**A rhombus is a special case of a rectangle**. Since, we know, that the diagonals of a rhombus intersect at equal angles whereas the diagonals of a rectangle are equal in length. Upon connecting the midpoints of the sides of a rhombus, a rectangle is formed.

## What property makes a rhombus a parallelogram?

Conclusion:

Quadrilateral | Properties |
---|---|

Rectangle | 1) All the properties of a parallelogram. 2) Diagonals are equal. 3) Each of the angles is a right angle. |

Rhombus | 1) All the properties of a parallelogram. 2) All sides are of equal length. 3) Diagonals are perpendicular bisectors of each other. |

## What is a rhombus simple definition?

Definition of rhombus

: **a parallelogram with four equal sides and sometimes one with no right angles**.

## Are rhombus diagonals equal?

Then the Rhombus is a quadrilateral, where diagonals bisect each other and are

**not equal**.## Are all 4 sides of a rhombus equal?

Rhombus is a quadrilateral with

**all equal sides**. Since opposite sides of a parallelogram are equal so, rhombus is a special type of a parallelogram whose all sides are equal.## Which is the best description of a rhombus?

A rhombus is

**a parallelogram with four equal sides and opposite equal angles**. A rhombus can be a square, or if it has two acute angles and two obtuse angles, it takes the shape of a diamond.
