A trapezium (called Trapezoid in the US) is a quadrilateral which has only one pair of parallel sides. The parallel sides are referred to as ‘bases’ and the other two sides are called ‘legs’ or lateral sides.

## What are the elements of a quadrilateral?

A quadrilateral has 8 elements – 4 sides and 4 angles. In addition to these elements a quadrilateral has 2 diagonals which play an important role in determining the size and shape of a quadrilateral. Thus a quadrilateral has 10 elements (4 sides, 4 angles and 2 diagonals) or measurements.

## How do you jump a quadrilateral?

Steps of construction:

- Draw diagonal PU of length 6. 5cm.
- Taking 4. 5cm as radius & P as center, draw an arc on top of PU.
- Taking 3. 5cm as radius & U as center, draw an arc on top of PU.
- Taking 5cm as radius & P as center, draw an arc on bottom of PU.
- Taking 4cm as radius & U as center, draw an arc on bottom of PU.

## How do you construct a quadrilateral PQRS?

Draw a line segment PR=7 cm.

- With 4 cm as radius, draw an arc from P.
- Similarly, with radius as 6 cm from R, cut the arc just drawn.
- They will intersect at Q. Join PQ and QR.
- They will intersect at S. Join PS and RS.
- PQRS is the required quadrilateral.

## Is it possible to construct a quadrilateral ABCD in which ad 3cm?

Answer: No, it is not possible to construct a quadrilateral ABCD because here AD=3 cm and DA=7.5 cm which refer to same side. Any side cannot have two different measurements.

## How do you construct a quadrilateral Class 8?

Step 1: Draw AB=4. 2 cm. Step 2: With A as the centre and radius equal to 8 cm, draw an arc. Step 3: With B as the centre and radius equal to 6 cm, draw another arc, cutting the previous arc at C.

## How do you construct a quadrilateral with a compass?

Read through the following steps.

- Place the compass on the vertex of the angle (point B). Draw an arc across each arm of the angle.
- Place the compass on the point where one arc crosses an arm and draw an arc inside the angle.
- Use a ruler to join the vertex to the point where the arcs intersect (D).

## Can a quadrilateral ABCD be a parallelogram?

Since opposite angles are equal in parallelogram and here opposite angles are not equal in quadrilateral ABCD. Therefore it is not a parallelogram.

## Which of the following elements of a quadrilateral are sufficient to construct a quadrilateral?

Answer. Atleast 5 values are required to construct a quadrilateral. Explanation: Quadrilateral has 10 elements that includes 4 sides, 4 angles and 2 diagonals.

## How many parts does a quadrilateral have?

Properties of a Quadrilateral: A quadrilateral has 4 sides, 4 angles and 4 vertices. A quadrilateral can be regular or irregular. The sum of all the interior angles of a quadrilateral is 360°.
