What is a kite ? Definition and examples.

A kite is a quadrilateral with two pairs of adjacent sides that are congruent and no opposite sides that are congruent.


Furthermore, a kite has no pairs of parallel sides. Notice the use of tick marks in order to show which pair of sides is congruent.

Be careful!

  • A kite is not a parallelogram.

  • If opposite sides of a kite are congruent, then the kite is no longer a kite. The kite has become a rhombus.
