Best Answer

Yes all squares meet the requirements of a rectangle. They are equiangular quadrilaterals (have 4 equal angles) and have two pairs of opposite parallel sides. Squares are a subset of all equilateral rectangles. Thus, all squares are rectangles, but only some rectangles are squares.

Yes all squares are rectangles because they have four equal angles and two pairs of opposite parallel sides. Not all rectangles are squares however, because only some of them are equilateral.

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.

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.
