A rhombus is never a rectangle. A rhombus has four sides that are equilateral whereas with a rectangle the two sides are equilateral and the two ends are equilateral.

Not necissarily. Quadrilateral simply says it has 4 sides. A rectangle has perpendicular sides. Equilateral means that the sides are of equal length (like a square, which is a special case rectangle)

"equilateral" is a fancy word meaning "has all sides equal". Such a rectangle is called a square.

equilateral

no, equilateral means that all sides are the same length, Squares, which are rectangles, are equilateral.

A rectangle is not always equilateral. A square and a rhombus both have four equal sides.

A square has all four equilateral sides, whereas a rectangle has two sets opposite sides that are congruent. A rectangle can be a square, but a square can not be a rectangle.

It's a square. A rectangle is any polygon with two pairs pf parallel sides all intersecting at perpendicular angles. It's diagonals are also congruent. This is also true with a square. So, a square could also be considered a rectangle. The only difference is that a square's sides all have to be the same length, and a rectangle's doesn't. 'Equilateral' means all the sides are equal. Therefore, an equilateral rectangle is a square.

The rectangle which is equilateral is called as square.

Only if all the faces (sides) are the same length. A rhombus is the equilateral version of a parallelogram, just like a square is the equilateral version of a rectangle.

a square - an equilateral square a rectangle - an equilateral rectangle

A rectangle comes to mind. A rectangle is equiangular (all angles the same) and is also a quadrilateral (four-sided), but is not equilateral (all sides of the same length).

A quadrilateral has four sides, and the fact that it is equilateral means the sides all have the same length, so the only possible shapes with four sides of equal length are a square and a rhombus.

No, it is not.

A rhombus is any equilateral ( all four sides congruent) quadrilateral. If it has right angle for the vertices then it is a rectangle called a square.

An equilateral rectangle is a square.

a square is but not a rectangle

I hope you want to know the Perimeter. Perimeter is the total length of the boundary of the region bounded by a shape. For a rectangle it is the sum of the 4 bounding sides, or 2*(L+B), where L is Length of the rectangle and B is Breadth of the rectangle. For a Triangle it is the sum of the 3 sides. If you consider an equilateral triangle. By property the 3 sides of an equilateral triangle are equal. Hence the Perimeter of an equilateral triangle is denoted as; 3*a, where a is the length of one of the sides of the triangle. It is possible that the perimeter of a rectangle is same as that of many different types of triangles. We can formulate a relationship for a special case where the perimeter of a rectangle is equal to the perimeter of an equilateral triangle; P(R) = P(ET), P(R) is perimeter of rectangle and P(EQ) is perimeter of Equilateral triangle. P(R)=2(L*B) = P(EQ) = 3*a; hence, a = (2/3)*(L*B) = P(R)/3. i.e., the sides of the Equilateral triangle are one thirds of the perimeter of the rectangle.

An irregular shape like the delta or triangle( not equilateral) oblong (rectangle).....

No, it becomes a triangle. A rhombus is an equilateral parallelogram, or a diamond with all its sides equal.

No, only some rectangles are squares. For a rectangle to be a square, all sides must be equal (the rectangle must be equilateral). Only the equilateral rectangles are squares, but every square is a rectangle. In short, the squares are a subset of rectangles in which all four sides are equal in length. Some rectangles are squares, and all squares are rectangles.

In the instance of a triangle it is equilateral. Most quadrilaterals have equal sides as well (such as a rectangle with two sets of equal sides).

An equilateral triangle is a triangle with three equal sides. An isosceles triangle is one with two equal sides. So yes, an equilateral triangle qualifies as being an isosceles triangle as well. This is quite similar to the relationship between squares and rectangles, where a square is always a rectangle, but a rectangle isn't necessarily a square.

No.
