Squares and rhombuses can be congruent, but not always. If the rhombus is also a square, it is congruent to a square with the same dimensions. However, since a rhombus only demands for OPPOSITE angles to be congruent, and a square means ALL angles are 90 degrees, this is not always the case.

Are all four sides to a rhombus always congruent?


What has 4 congruent sides but not a square?

A rhombus, diamond, lozenge or an equilateral quadrilateral all have 4 congruent sides but are not squares.

Is a parallelogram sometimes a rhombus always a rhombus or never a rhombus?

sometimes, only if all sides are congruent

Are the adjacent sides of a rhombus blank congruent never sometimes always?

The adjacent sidesof a rhombus are always congruent... that's one of the identifying factors. A rhombus has all sides congruent, opposite sides parallel, and bisecting diagonals.

Quadrilateral with congruent sides?

Rhombus, or is all the angles are right angles and you want to be more specific, squares.

What is a parallelogram in which all sides are congruent?

A square or a rhombus. A rhombus does not have 4 congruent angles as a square does. It's always a rhombus. And, depending on the angles, it could also be a square. (This definition treats the square as a special case of the rhombus.)

Does a rhombus have two pairs of congruent angles?

Yes, a rhombus always has two pairs of congruent angles because of the fact that all of their sides are equal.

Is a square rhombuses?

A rhombus is a quadrilateral in which all of the sides are of equal length, It is an equilateral quadrangle. If any angle of an equilateral quadrangle is a right angle, then all its angles are right angles. It is also a square. All squares are rhombuses. Some rhombuses are squares. A rhombus is a parallelogram with 4 congruent sides. A square is a rhombus with 4 congruent angles.

What is different between a parallelogram and a rhombus?

They are basically the same thing however, a rhombus has the sides all congruent and the parallelogram has the opposite sides congruent. If the rhombus had angles of 90 degrees it would become a square and if a parallelogram had sides 90 degrees it would become a rectangle. All rhombuses are parallelograms, but not all parallelograms are rhombuses. Likewise, using the above example of squares, all squares are rectangles but not all rectangles are squares.

What type of quadrilateral has four congruent sides?

A rhombus is a quadrilateral whose four sides are congruent. Squares are a type of rhombus with congruent angles. Since there are 4 contruent angles, they must all be right angles.So any quadrilateral that is equilateral is a rhombus and any rhombus with 4 right angles is a square. Every rhombus is a parallelogram because the opposite angles of a rhombus are congruent. Also, the diagonals of a rhombus are perpendicular.
