For a start, a square IS a rectangle, so it has ALL the properties of a rectangle. A square has the additional property that all of its sides have the same length.

a rectangle is not a square by a square having parallel sides for all but the rectangle only has one pair of parallel sides * * * * * Actually, a rectangle has two pairs of parallel sides - the same as a square. Where they differ is that a rectangle has two pairs of sides of equal length, but each pair is different from the other. In a square, all four sides are of equal length.

In that case, it is a square.

Well a square cube is the same length on all sides unlike a rectangle cube.

Yes. There is a shape that has all the properties of a rectangle and all the properties of a rhombus at the same time. It is called a square.

For a start, a square IS a rectangle, so it has ALL the properties of a rectangle. A square has the additional property that all of its sides have the same length.

it is the formula for both a rectangle and a square. remember a square is a rectangle, but a rectangle is not a square (what i mean is a square has to have all 90 degree angles and four sides that are all the same length a rectangle doesn't have all the same lengths. but a rectangle is a shape with all 90 degree angles, and a square fits that discription)

They are not technically the same. A square is a rectangle but a rectangle is not a square. A rectangle requires opposite sides to be the same length. A square's opposite sides are the same length so it is a rectangle. A square requires all sides to be the same length, not just opposite sides. So most rectangles are not squares.

A square is a rectangle in which all the sides are the same length.

A "regular" polygon has all sides the same length. A "regular" rectangle has all sides the same length, therefore it is also a square. An "irregular" rectangle then would be any rectangle that is not a square.

A square is a 4-sided shape in which all of the sides are same length, but a rectangle is a 4-sided shape in which a side parallel to another side are the same length. A square meets a rectangle's requirements, but since the rectangle's sides don't all have to be the same size, it doesn't meet the square's requirements

A square is always a rectangle, but a rectangle is not always a square. A square is a special rectangle that has all 4 sides the same length.

A square is a rectangle in which all side lengths are the same.

Any rectangle that does not have all of its sides of equal length will be a non-square rectangle. A square is a special form of rectangle. In a rectangle, all its interior angles are right angles. If all four sides are the same length, it's a square. If not, it's a non-square rectangle.

A square.

A rectangle is a square if all sides are the same length. A rhombus is a square if all angles are right angles (90o).
