Quadrilaterals with perpendicular lines have sides that meet at a right angle (90°). Some quadrilaterals also fit into another type. A square is a type of rectangle, and rectangles are also a type of parallelogram.

What are quadrilaterals that are Rhombuses?

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 90°. A rhombus with right angles would become a square. Another name for rhombus is ‘diamond’ as it looks similar to the diamond suit in playing cards.

### What is an irregular quadrilateral?

#### What is rhombus math?

Rhombus is a special type of a parallelogram whose all sides are equal. The difference between a square and rhombus is that all angles of a square are right angles, but the angles of a rhombus need not be right angles. So, a rhombus with right angles becomes a square.

What is the difference between parallelogram and rhombus?
