Yes, a square is a special case of rectangle (all four angles are 90Â°). The special case is that all four sides are equal length.

Yes because all squares and rectangles are four-sided parallelograms. All squares are rectangles but not all reclangles are squares.

### How can a square be a rectangle?

All squares are rectangles, but not all rectangles are squares. The definition of a rectangle is a 4 sided figure with 4 right angles. So all squares are rectangles.

### Are all square rectangle?

yes

### Why a square can be rectangle and rectangle can not be square?

The above statement is not true since some rectangles ARE squares. Squares are a special type of a rectangle - one in which all sides are of equal length. In other words, the set of all squares is a subset of the set of all rectangles.

### How come not all rectangles are squares?

The characteristics for a rectangle is that it has to have 4 right angles and 2 pairs of congruent and parallel sides. Squares have to meet these requirements and also have to have all sides congruent. All rectangles meet to the rectangle's standard, but not all of them meet up to a square's standard. Therefore, not all rectangles are squares. Or, in a more simplified version: squares are a type of rectangle, but rectangles are not a type of squares, therefore not all rectangles are squares.

### Is a rectangle always a square why?

No. The square is a special case of rectangle where all the sides are of equal length. So some rectangles are squares, and all squares are rectangles.

### Can a parallelogram be a rectangle and a square?

the three special quadrilaterals that can be a parallelogram are a rectangle, a square, and a rhombus Actually, this is incorrect. All squares are rectangles. All rectangles are parallelograms. Therefore all squares are parallelograms. But not all parallelograms are rectangles. And not all rectangles are squares.

### What are all the quadrilaterals that are both a rhombus and a rectangle?

They are squares.
