A parallelogram is slanted. A rectangle is not.

The difference is: 1) the rectangle has all right angles 2)a parallelogram has acute and obtuse angles but not a rectangle

Similitude : Le rectangle et le parallélogramme ont quatre cotés parallèles deux à deux Différence : seul le rectangle a quatre angles droits (90°)

The difference between a triangle, rectangle, pentagon, and parallelogram id the number of sides: Triangle= 3 sides Rectangle= 4 sides Pentogon= 5 sides But, a parallelogram, is a polygon that has all sides parael to one another.

A square has all the properties of a rectangle and rhombus. (A square is always a rectangle.) A rectangle is not always a square but is always a parallelogram. A parallelogram is a quadrilateral (four sided figure) with both pairs of opposite sides are parallel. A rectangle is a quadrilateral with four right angles.

All rectangles are parallelograms.

They both have four sides.

All the angles of a rectangle are right angle. This is not necessarily true of a parallelogram. There are many other differences that arise from this difference.

The main difference between a rectangle and a parallelogram that makes rectangle a special case of the parallelogram is the fact that all the angles of a rectangle are equal to 90 degrees. This is not the case in a parallelogram because the adjacent angles are only supplementary to each other.

A parallelogram has 2 equal obtuse angles and 2 equal acute angles whereas a rectangle has 4 equal 90 degree angles
