### Lesson 13.1 Identify Sides and Angles of Quadrilaterals

**Explore and Grow**

Sort the Polygon Cards.

**Structure**

Does the sort change if you sort by the number of vertices? Explain.

**Think and Grow: Sides and Angles of Quadrilaterals**

A polygon is a closed, two-dimensional shape with three or more sides.

Answers:

A quadrilateral is a polygon with four sides. Quadrilaterals have four vertices and four angles.

Quadrilaterals can have parallel sides and right angles. Parallel sides are two sides that are always the same distance apart. A right angle is an L-shaped angle.

When two straight lines intersect each other at 90˚ or are perpendicular to each other at the intersection, they form the right angle. A right angle is represented by the symbol ∟.

Parallel lines are lines in a plane that are always the same distance apart. Parallel lines never intersect. Parallel lines are represented as ll.

**Example**

Question 7.

**Reasoning**

Can a quadrilateral have exactly three right angles? Explain.

Explanation:

The types of quadrilaterals that have 3 right angles are known as:

1.Squares

2.Rectangles

3.Other shapes where all angles are 90°.

The reason for this is:

All quadrilaterals interior angles must add up to exactly 360°.

So:

= 360−(90+90+90)

= 90°.

And thus, the fourth angle must be 90°.

Thefore, the only quadrilaterals where all angles are 90° are squares and rectangles.
