A Rhombus

Rectangle, parallelogram

A rectangle and a parallelogram have the same formula for area:The area of a parallelogram is given:area = length Ã— widthwhere:length is the length of one of the sides of the parallelogram; andwidth is the perpendicular distance between the side chosen for the length and its parallel side.In the formula for the area of a rectangle, the width (perpendicular distance between the sides given for the length) is also the length of the other two sides.

That would be a rhombus. (It can't be a 'square', because a square is also a rectangle.)

If both pairs of opposite sides are the same length, and both pairs of opposite angles are the same, the quadrilateral is a parallelogram (rhombus, rectangle, or square).

A rectangle is a parallelogram since it is a quadrilateral with 2 pairs of parallel sides. A rectangle is just a specific type of parallelogram. Paralellogram = Parallel sides have equal length

Rectangle, parallelogram

It is a rectangle.

A rhombus.

a rectangle has four right angles and opposite sides are all the same length This means that a parallelogram is not always a rectangle, but a rectangle is always a parallelogram, by definition.

the diagonal in a paralleogram is not equal but the diagonals in the rectangle are congruent this is because the opposite sides of a parallelogram and rectangle are same parallel to each other but the adjacent sides of a parallelogram is not perpendicular where as the adjacent sides of rectangle is perpendicular to each other.

It is a special type of parallelogram, because all the sides are the same length. Rhombus is to parallelogram as square is to rectangle.

Technically it is because a rhombus is a parallelogram that has four sides of equal length in the same way that a square is technically a rectangle that has four sides of equal length.

A quadrilateral is a 4 sided shape. A parallelogram is a quadrilateral with 2 pairs of parallel sides. A rectangle is a parallelogram with right angles corners. A square is a rectangle with all equal sides. The answer is yes. ■
