## FAQs on RD Sharma Class 8 Maths Solutions Chapter 16 - Understanding Shapes II

1. What is the difference between a quadrilateral and a convex quadrilateral?

A quadrilateral is a plane figure with four sides that do not intersect each other except at the endpoints. A quadrilateral can be any figure such as a square or a rectangle. A convex quadrilateral is a type of quadrilateral, a quadrilateral that has the vertices on the same side of a line of the quadrilateral is called a convex quadrilateral. Students must understand the difference between a quadrilateral and a convex quadrilateral for solving questions given in the Chapter 16 - Understanding Shapes II (Quadrilaterals) of Class 8 maths.

2. What is the difference between a side and a vertex?

A side of a quadrilateral is a straight line joining two points in a quadrilateral. The lengths of all the lines may be equal or may not be equal. Quadrilaterals are divided based on the lengths and angles of these sides. On the other hand, a vertex is an angular point at which two lines of a quadrilateral meet each other. So, a quadrilateral has 4 vertices and 4 sides. A quadrilateral also has four angles. There are many quadrilaterals such as a square, a rectangle, etc.

3. What is the difference between an adjacent angle and an opposite angle?

Adjacent angles are defined as two angles with at least one common arm in a figure. An opposite angle is an angle with no common arm with the other one. Students can study from the Class 8 RD Sharma textbook solutions chapter 16-Understanding Shapes II (Quadrilaterals) for understanding the different types of angles in a quadrilateral and their differences. Students must solve all important questions given in the chapter for understanding the concepts. They must visit the Vedantu to get all solutions for Chapter 16 RD Sharma.

4. What is a diagonal?

In a quadrilateral, a line joining two opposite vertices is called a diagonal. Two diagonals of a square or a rectangular intersect each other at 90 degrees. A diagonal also divides a quadrilateral into two equal halves. A diagonal is the longest segment. Students can read more about quadrilaterals and their features in Chapter 16 of Class 8. They can follow different books such as RD Sharma to prepare for the Class 8 maths. The questions given in the RD Sharma will help students to practice and score high marks in the exam.

5. What are the interior and exterior areas?

In a quadrilateral, the points falling inside the closed surface of the figure are called interior points or the area is called the interior area. On the other hand, the points falling out of the closed surface is called the exterior of the figure or exterior area. Students will study about different properties of quadrilaterals in chapter 16 of class 8 maths. There are different properties related to the interior and exterior points of a quadrilateral. Students must visit the Vedantu to find the solutions for Class 8 RD Sharma Chapter 16.
