# Why is every square also a rectangle?

A rectangle has four sides, in two pairs of equal length, and four angles, all of which are right angles.

A square satisfies all of these requirements so a square is a rectangle. In adition, the two pairs of sides of a square are of equal length as well. That makes the square a very special kind of rectangle, but it is still a rectangle.

A square is a special case of a rectangle. Every square is a rectangle, but not every rectangle is a square. A square is a rectangle with four sides that are all equal in length.

Every square is a rectangle but not every rectangle is a square.

Every square is a rectangle, but not every rectangle is a square.

They both have four sides and four right angles. Every square is also a rectangle. But not every rectangle is a square.

Yes, every square is a rectangle (a special kind of rectangle), but not every rectangle is a square.

No. &lt;&gt;&lt;&gt;&lt;&gt; Sort of like all pears are fruit, but not all fruit is a pear.

Yes. For example, a 4x4 square would have an area of 16 units squared. A 2x8 rectangle would also have an area of 16 units squared. Also, every rectangle is a square too though every square is not a rectangle. So, a 4x4 square is also a rectangle which means both have the same area.

No! Every rectangle has a square if that's what you mean

No. "The lengths of adjacent sides can be different." True for a rectangle, not true for a square.

No, but every square is a rectangle.

A square is a rectangle with every side being congruent to every other side.

Every square, rectangle, and rhombus is also a parallelogram.

They both have parallel lines and they have only 2 sides that match up. Also a square is a rhombus and a rectangle, so a rhombus can be a rectangle, but a rhombus cannot be a square and either can a rectangle.

, sir,Every square is a rectangle, since the angles in the square are always right angles. However, every rectangle is NOT a square: a square is just a specific type of rectangle. Hope this helps! :-)

it cant all sides have to be equilateral edit- a rectangle cannot be a square. however, a square can be a rectangle. reedit - A rectangle can be a square, however, a square must be a rectangle. A rectangle has four 90 degree angles, which a square also has. The rectangle has two pairs of equal length sides, which a square also has. The only additional requirement for a square is that the length of all four sides be equal, which is not ruled out for a rectangle.

A square is a rectangle because a square has 2 parallel sides and so does a rectangle .

Yes. Every rectangle has 4 sides and 4 right angles. A rectangle that has 4 congruent sides is therefore a square.

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.

While every square is a rectangle, not all rectangles are squares. A rectangle can have one pair of parallel lines that are longer then the other pair, however in a square all four sides are the same length.

a rectangle doesn't have four equal sided measurements, which is the definition of a square. also it can take one or more squares to make a rectangle but u can't make a rectangle into a square.
