The origin of the word `quadrilateral` is the two Latin words quadri, a variant of four, and latus, meaning `side`. Quadrilaterals are simple (not self-intersecting) or complex (self-intersecting), also called crossed. Simple quadrilaterals are either convex or concave. This is a special case of the n-gon interior angle sum formula (n − 2)
