What shape goes in the intersection of this Venn Diagram?
Read on for the answer:
A quick reminder:
KITES: have two pairs of adjacent equal sides.
TRAPEZIA: have one pair of parallel sides. One of them is called a trapezium; more than one is trapezia.
AND NOW THE ANSWER: any any shape with both of these properties must have all four sides the same length. The answer is therefore RHOMBI (the plural of “rhombus” – the correct mathematical name of a “diamond” shape).
NOTE: if you said “squares” you are only partly correct: all the other rhombi need to go in the intersection too!
