All figures with four congruent sides are rhombuses. All figures with four congruent angles are rectangles. Any shape that is both a rhombus and a rectangle is a square.

Yes. The basic definition for a rectangle is 4 sides, four right angles(perpendicular), and opposite sides are congruent.

In all parallelograms, opposite angles and opposite sides are congruent. If all four sides are congruent, it's a rhombus. If all four angles are congruent, it's a rectangle. If all four sides and all four angles are congruent, it's a square.

Rectangles have four right angles so, yes, all squares are rectangles because they also have four right-angled corners. However, rectangles can have sides of any length, as long as the opposite sides are of equal length, whereas a square has all four sides of equal length. A more technical reply could be that a rectangle has two pairs of congruent and parallel sides, which all squares have.

That is true. A parallelogram is a quadrilateral with both pairs of opposite sides parallel to one another. Special types of parallelograms include a rhombus (all four sides also congruent to each other), a rectangle (all four interior angles measure 90o), and a square (all four sides congruent and all four interior angles are right). A rectangle is a special case of a parallelogram, therefore all rectangles are by definition parallelograms but not all parallelograms are rectangles.

No, only those rectangles that are squares have four congruent sides.

a rectangle has 4 right angles. A rhombus has four congruent sides. A square has four right angles and four congruent sides. All squares are rectangles because all rectangles have 4 right angles, and all squares have four right angles. But not all rectangles are squares because not all rectangles have congruent sides.

No, rectangles do not have congruent sides. Squares have congruent sides.

All figures with four congruent sides are rhombuses. All figures with four congruent angles are rectangles. Any shape that is both a rhombus and a rectangle is a square.

no rectangles dont have 4 congruent side, otherwise it would be a square or a rhombus.

No. A quadrilateral is a any closed polygon with four sides. A rectangle is a quadrilateral with four right angles and congruent opposing sides. Therefore, all rectangles are quadrilaterals, but not all quadrilaterals are rectangles.

A parallelogram is a four sided figure. that has congruent angles and all sides are parallel

because not all sides are equal

Yes. The basic definition for a rectangle is 4 sides, four right angles(perpendicular), and opposite sides are congruent.

No. Usually only opposite sides are congruent.

In all parallelograms, opposite angles and opposite sides are congruent. If all four sides are congruent, it's a rhombus. If all four angles are congruent, it's a rectangle. If all four sides and all four angles are congruent, it's a square.
