Q: A: ### Quick Answer

**A quadrangle with one right angle has no special name.** It is called a quadrangle or a quadrilateral. Any four-sided shape is a quadrilateral, according to Math Is Fun.

The types of quadrangles that have special names are rectangles, parallelograms, rhombuses, squares, trapezoids and kites. Quadrangles must have interior angles that total 360 degrees. A rectangle has four right angles, and each angle is 90 degrees. A parallelogram does not necessarily have right angles, but opposite angles need to be equal, similar to the rhombus. An isosceles trapezoid has equal angles that come from parallel sides. A kite has equal angles where the two pairs of sides intersect.

## What is the tangent formula?

A:

Full Answer >**The formula for the tangent of an angle, x, is tan(x) = opposite / adjacent, where opposite and adjacent refer to the sides of a right angle triangle containing the angle x.**Another formula for the tangent of an angle is tan(x) = sin(x) / cos(x).Filed Under: - Q:
## What is the centroid of a right triangle?

A:

Full Answer >**The centroid of any triangle, right triangles included, is the point where the angle bisectors of all three vertices of a triangle intersect.**Given a triangle made from a sufficiently rigid and uniform material, the centroid is the point at which that triangle balances.Filed Under: - Q:
## What are perpendicular lines?

A:

Full Answer >**Perpendicular lines are those that form a right angle at the point at which they intersect.**Parallel lines, though in the same plane, never intersect.Filed Under: - Q:
## What is an orthogonal vector?

A:

Full Answer >**An orthogonal vector is a vector that is at an angle of 90 degrees, or perpendicular, to another vector.**Up to three vectors can be mutually orthogonal to each other in a three-dimensional space.Filed Under:
