What shape has 4 sides 4 angles and all sides different lengths?

Quadrilaterals are polygons with four sides (hence the beginning “quad”, which means “four”). A polygon with non-equal sides is called irregular, so the figure that you are describing is an irregular quadrilateral. This figure has side lengths of 1, 2, 3, and 4 respectively, so it is an irregular quadrilateral.

What has 4 sides but is not a square?

The Rhombus A rhombus is a four-sided shape where all sides have equal length (marked “s”). Also opposite sides are parallel and opposite angles are equal. Another interesting thing is that the diagonals (dashed lines) meet in the middle at a right angle.

## What is a 8 sided polygon?

octagon
In simple words, the octagon is an 8-sided polygon, also called 8-gon, in a two-dimensional plane. A regular octagon will have all its sides equal in length. Each interior angle of a regular octagon is equal to 135°. Therefore, the measure of exterior angle becomes 180° – 135° = 45°.

### What is a 9 sided polygon?

All of these polygons have different properties based on the number of sides and angles they have. A nonagon is a nine sided polygon and it is also called an Enneagon or 9-gon. In other words, a nonagon is a nine sided closed two dimensional figure.
