A kite is a real life example of a rhombus shape. However, while a kite has a rhombus shape, it is not a rhombus. More »

A rhombus has four equal offset sides, while a parallelogram has four offset sides. Each pair of a parallelogram is parallel to each other but not equal in size. More »

The difference between a parallelogram and a rhombus is that a parallelogram is a quadrilateral whose opposite sides are parallel to one another regardless of how many sides the figure has, and a rhombus is a parallelogr... More »

A rhombus has exactly four sides and has a diamond shape. All the sides of a rhombus are the same length, and its opposite sides are parallel to each other. The difference between a rhombus and a square is that the angle... More »

In real life, there are many different applications of geometry including everyday uses such as the "stop sign," which is an octagon shape. The shape, volume, location, surface area and various other physical properties ... More »

One common example of perpendicular lines in real life is the point where two city roads intersect. When one road crosses another, the two streets join at right angles to each other and form a cross-type pattern. Perpend... More »

A kite, which is a quadrilateral with two different pairs of adjacent sides that are equal in length, has only one line of symmetry. A line of symmetry for any polygon can be found by reflecting the polygon over a line s... More »
