We know that a quadrilateral is a polygon with $4$4 sides, this means that quadrilaterals also have $4$4 interior angles. The other known fact we have is the the sum of the interior angles of a quadrilateral is $360^\circ$360°.
There are a number of different types of quadrilaterals, and they all have specific properties.
Bisect means to cut something into two equal parts. If you bisect a line, you cut it into two right in the middle.
Let's explore what kind of criteria we need to be explicitly given to be able to draw a unique quadrilateral.
I'll start by asking you some questions, see if from the criteria I give you if you can draw 1, none or many quadrilaterals.
Draw a quadrilateral with 2 sides of 4 cm, and 2 sides of 5 cm.
What kinds of quadrilaterals could you draw? How many different types?
Draw a quadrilateral with with 1 pair of congruent sides, and 1 pair of parallel sides. What type is it? Are their many different quadrilaterals that fit this criteria?
What about with 2 pairs of congruent sides and 2 pairs of parallel sides?
Draw a quadrilateral with 2 right angles, 1 set of parallel lines and 2 sets of perpendicular lines.
Draw a quadrilateral with no right angles and 2 sets of congruent sides of length 5 cm and 8 cm respectively.
Draw a quadrilateral with no right angles, 2 pairs of parallel lines, with at least one length of exactly 5 cm.
Draw a quadrilateral with no right angles, no parallel lines and no congruent lines.
Draw a quadrilateral with side lengths 3, 5, 6 and 10 cm.
