A square is a special type of rectangle; therefore it has all the properties of a rectangle. Any property that a rectangle has, a square has as well. This includes the facts that it has four right angles (that's where the name "rectangle" comes from), that opposite sides are parallel, that opposite sides have the same length, and that diagonals have the same length.

It is simple the study of triangles: the properties of their sides and angles. This is then extended to other, more complicated polygons and polyhedra, but the basis is still the triangle.

### What is trigonometry all about?

The word, trigonometry" is derived from trigon = triangle + metry = measurement. It is based on the study of angles of a triangle and their properties. Although trigonometric ratios are often introduced to students in the context of triangles, their properties for all angles.For example, trigonometric functions are well defined for angles with negative values as well as for more than 180 degrees even though no triangle can possibly have angles with such measures.
