yes it does

You can combine the 2 triangles for a square and then add the 2 other squares next to it, and you get a rectangle. :) And you're welcome

A rectangle.. If you combine the triangles to make another square and then place all the squares in a row it makes a rectangle. you can also make a trapezium, if you place the 2 squares next to each other and then the triangles beside them...

A double house?.

If the 2 triangles are right triangles, which are congruent to slicing the rectangle on the diagonal, then arrange one on top of the rectangle, and the other to the side, so that the two hypotenuses are in line with each other. This will make a bigger right triangle, which is similar to the smaller right triangles - each side is double of the smaller triangles.

Inscribed triangles in a rectangle are identical right triangles but they are rotated 180 relative to each other.

square and 2 triangles put together

A square already has 2 right angle triangles within it

Yes, they can. To demonstrate this draw a square on a sheet of paper. Draw a line diagonally from one corner to the one opposite. Cut along this line and you will have two triangles. Take them apart; if you put them together again in the right way you will have a square. Put together in different ways you can make an isosceles triangle or an equilateral parallelogram. If you do the same thing beginning with a rectangle, you will be able to reassemble the triangles to form a rectangle, isosceles triangle or a (non-equilateral) parallelogram.

A square is a rectangle because the requirements for a rectangle is that it have two pairs of parallel sides. In other words, the opposites sides of a 4-sided shape need to be parallel. This is the case for a square making it a rectangle. The requirements for a square are that a 4-sided shape have congruent sides and angles, in other words, 90 degree angles for each angle, but the added requirement of having all sides equal. While a rectangle can have all sides equal, that would make it a square as well. _________________________________________ I think of it this way: a) Draw an 'x' through both the square and the rectangle. Now count the number of triangles created. b) A square and a rectangle are both: the sum of the area of 4 (equilateral) triangles. c) A square is the sum area of 4 equilateral triangles of the same dimensions. d) A rectangle is the sum area of 2 pair of equilateral triangles. Sooooo, they are both: a sum area of 4 triangles. But not all the triangles were created equal. If they are equal, then you have a square. If they are paired, then you have a rectangle. Basically, a square is a type of rectangle. It's like saying that all blueberry bagels are bagels, but not all bagles are blueberry bagels. Rectangles must have four right angles and four sides. The four sides must include two pairs that are opposite each other and equal in length. Squares and Rectangles meet these requirements, so all squares are technically rectangles. The additional requirement to classify a rectangle as a square is that all four sides must be equal. This is only true for squares, not all rectangles.

No two equilateral triangles do not make a square but two right triangles do.

a square

A minimum of 2 triangles are needed, but you can also make a rectangle with 3 or more triangles.

Rectangle is length times width and triangles are base times height divided by 2.

If you have 2 EQUILATERAL triangles, and you stack them on their respective hypotenuses, the result: SQUARE. If you have 2 ISOSCELES triangles, and you stack them on their respective hypotenuses, the result: RECTANGLE. If you have 2 OBTUSE triangles, and you stack them on their respective hypotenuses, the result: PARALLELOGRAM.

a square and to triangles

three triangles, and 1 square+2 triangles

Triangles (four of) and a square.One square as base and four triangles as sides.

2 triangles or 2 quadrilaterals

Parallelograms of any form, a square, a rectangle, and a rhombus are just special parallelograms so all will form 2 pairs of isosceles triangles when a diagonal is drawn.

Simply assemble the triangles in to a rectangle.
