and the other one that I had will work for quadrilaterals internally tangent to a circle such as squares, rectangles, and isoscoles trapezoids but not the ones you can't inscribe in a circle with each vertex meeting a point on it or 1 point being outside the circle. That is this: For example a 5 * 5 square (is this right) And I would get the same thing with this:

Okay so why is a parallelogram a special case of a trapezoid? As far as I know trapezoids have 1 pair of parallel sides while parallelograms have 2. I understand why the 3 sides equal trapezoid is a special case of the isosceles trapezoid and that is because the word isosceles means at least 2 sides are equal, meaning that anything equilateral is isosceles. What I don't understand is how the 2 pairs of parallel sides on a parallelogram makes it a special case of the trapezoid in general.
