Welcome to the second of our Difficult Eleven plus maths quizzes on Shapes. If you’ve made it this far then you should breeze through these questions. They are a mixture on terms used to describe 2D and 3D shapes.
There are many different shapes that you need to learn. Yes, there are the obvious ones like circles, squares, triangles and cubes. But there are some more obscure ones such as trapeziums, rhomboids, parallelograms and ellipses. You need to know exactly what these shapes look like and some of their properties.
If you need more practice with shapes then fear not! Just play this quiz and all of the others on shapes until you get all the questions right first time. The more you play, the more you learn so keep at it!
Now let's see how well you can do  good luck!














A hexagon is a polygon with six sides and six corners

Equilateral triangles have sides of equal length and interior angles of 60^{o}


The formula for the area of a circle is πr^{2}

A cube is, of course, a 3D square


The sum of the interior angles of a quadrilateral is 360^{o}. You can cut a quadrilateral in half to make two triangles: 360^{o} ÷ 2 = 180^{o}

Quadrilaterals are 2D shapes with four sides. There are plenty of different quadrilaterals: kites parallelograms, rhomboids, rectangles, oblongs, squares, and trapeziums for example


The term 'regular' is used for any polygon with equal sides and internal angles

The word "parallelogram" comes from the Greek for “bounded by parallel lines”.
Rectangles are parallelograms in which the internal angles are equal to 90^{o} 

Cylinders are similar to prisms, but they have curved edges

An ellipse is a curved shape, similar to a squashed circle
