four equal angles

both a rectangle and square.

No, because a rectangle has four sides, and four right angles. So does a square. But, a rhombus has four sides, two obtuse angles, and two acute angles. Even though a rhombus does qualify as a parallelogram, (four sides, four angles) is does not qualify as a rectangle or square because is doesn't have four right angles. All squares are rectangles, but not all rectangles are squares because a rectangle has four sides, and four right angles, but with a square, all the sides have to be the same length.

A parallelogram is only a rectangle if it has 4 right angles. A square is a rectangle, but not vice versa because a square has all equal side lengths, four sides, AND four right angles. A rectangle has four right angles and 4 sides.

A square.

A rectangle with 4 equal sides and angles is often called a square.

A rectangle has the same number of sides and angles.

both a rectangle and square.

A square has 4 equal sides, and 4 equal angles and are considered paralellagrams A rectangle has 4 equal angles but not necessarily 4 equal sides, it is also a parallelagram.. On a square all sides are congruent, while in a rectangle only opposite sides are. So when is a square not a rectangle? what defines a rectangle and a square, each shape has to have 4 right angles. the sides are parallel and that in a square all four sides are congruent while in a rectangle only the opposite sides are congruent. So a rectangle must have opposite sides that are parallel and equal and four right angles. A square must have opposite sides parallel, all sides congruent, and four right angles. a rectangle is a parallelogram with four right angles, while a square is a parallelogram with four congruent sides and four right angles. By this definition a rectangle is a square since it has opposite sides that are congruent and parallel and it has four right angles. The question is, why a rectangle is not a square? A rectangle is not a square because it is not required to have four congruent sides.

Assuming there are no more sides/angles, then it is a rectangle.

No, because a rectangle has four sides, and four right angles. So does a square. But, a rhombus has four sides, two obtuse angles, and two acute angles.

Yes. A rhombus has four equal sides. A rectangle has four right angles. If a rhombus were also a rectangle, it would have four equal sides and four right angles. Thus it would be a square.

A shape that has four straight sides and four angles is defined as a quadrilateral. If all four angles are right angles, it is a rectangle, and if all four sides are congruent, it is a square.
