### MEAP Preparation - Grade 6 Mathematics4.17 Polygons

 Polygons: A simple closed figure bound by line segments is called a polygon. They are two dimensional figures. The line segments by which a polygon is bound are called its sides. The sides do not cross each other and exactly two sides meet at every vertex. Polygons with three sides are called triangles. Polygons with four sides are called quadrilaterals. A quadrilateral with two pairs of parallel and equal sides is called a parallelogram. A parallelogram with 4 right angles and 4 sides equal is a square. A parallelogram with 4 right angles and 2 pairs of equal sides is a rectangle. A quadrilateral with only 1 pair of parallel sides is called trapezoid. The diagonals of a parallelogram are not equal. A polygon that has 5 sides is a pentagon. A polygon that has 6 sides is a hexagon. A solid formed by plane figures is a polyhedron. Cube is an example of a polyhedron.
