# Which is always a rhombus? Parallelogram, Trapezoid, Rectangle, or Square?

##### 1 Answer

See expanation

#### Explanation:

Some definitions:

**Rhombus** - Four sides, all the same length, with opposite sides parallel.

**Parallelogram** - Four sides; two pairs of parallel sides.

**Trapezoid** - Four sides, with at least one pair of parallel sides.

**Rectangle** - Four sides connected at four right angles, thus giving two pairs of parallel sides.

**Square** - Four sides, all the same length, all connected at right angles.

Between mentioned figures you can write following dependencies:

Every rhombus is a parallelogram and a trapezoid.

Appart from it you can say that:

Parallelogram is trapezoid, but not every trapezoid is a parallelogram (for example a right trapezoid is not a parallelogram because it has only one pair of parallel sides)

Rectangle is a parallelogram.

Square is a rectangle, parallelogram, trapezoid and rhombus.
