# Difference Convex and Concave Quadrilaterals

In this video, you will learn the difference between a convex quadrilateral and a concave quadrilateral.

A quadrilateral is a four-sided polygon, but what is a convex Quadrilateral?

Quadrilaterals come in different shapes and sizes, and many common shapes we encounter daily are quadrilaterals.

A few examples include,
square
rectangle
parallelogram
rhombus
kite

Quadrilaterals can be further divided by the interior angle measurements.

A convex quadrilateral has interior angles 180 degrees or less.
A concave quadrilateral has an interior angle measure greater than 180 degrees. Most common quadrilaterals are convex, and they do not have any interior angle measure greater than 180 degrees.

A concave quadrilateral has a reflex interior angle measure. In other words, one interior angle measure is greater than 180 degrees.

A dart is one example of a concave quadrilateral.

A helpful method for memorizing the difference between these two types of quadrilaterals is to think of a cave for a concave quadrilateral. The reflex angle creates a cavity of a cave, which has an angle measure greater than 180 degrees.
