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.

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.

Are all four sides to a rhombus always congruent?


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

sometimes, only if all sides are congruent

Are all rhombus parallelogram?

No for a parallelogram to be a rhombus it would have to have consecutive sides congruent and the diagonals bisect each other. All squares are rhombuses.

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.)

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.

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.

Are all squares rhombuses?

Every square is a rhombus, but every rhombus is not a square. A square must have all right angles and a rhombus does not. A rhombus is a quadrilateral which has all sides congruent. It can have oblique angles or right angles. A rhombus with right angles is a square. Other rhombi are not squares. By these definitions, all squares are rhombi, but not all rhombi are squares

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.

Are squares always a rhombus and rectangle?

No but they are all 4 sided quadrilaterals
