# Is a rhombus always a rectangle yes or no?

# Can a figure be both a rectangle and a rhombus?

Yes. A figure which is both a rhombus and a rectangle is commonly called a square.

# Are rhombus ever rectangles?

Yes! Since rhombuses are quadrilaterals that have four congruent sides, a square can be considered as a rhombus. And since rectangles are quadrilaterals which has four 90 deg…ree angles, a square is also a rectangle. Thus a rhombus could be a rectangle.

# Can a rectangle also be a rhombus?

In general no, but in one specific special case yes. A rhombus is a quadrilateral in which all four sides are of equal length. A square is a special case of …a rhombus in which all four angles are equals (to 90Â°). A rectangle is a quadrilateral in which all four angles are equal (to 90Â°) and opposite sides are equal in length A square is a special case of a rectangle in which all four sides are equal in length. Thus the only rectangle that can be a rhombus is the special case when a rectangle is a square (which is also a rhombus).

# Why can a rectangle be a rhombus?

A rectangle is a four-sided shape, a parallelogram. Since a rhombus is a parallelogram then it is also a rectangle in a sense. Along with a square, it is a type of rectangle.

# Can a parallelogram be a rectangle rhombus and square?

No, because a rectangle has four sides, and four right angles. So does a square. But, a rhombus has four sides, two obtuse angles, and two acute angles. Even though a rhombus …does qualify as a parallelogram, (four sides, four angles) is does not qualify as a rectangle or square because is doesn't have four right angles. All squares are rectangles, but not all rectangles are squares because a rectangle has four sides, and four right angles, but with a square, all the sides have to be the same length.

# Is a rectangle that is not a square called a rhombus?

Yes Using the mathematical definitions, a rectangle can sometimes be a rhombus if it is a square. A square is both a rectangle and a rhombus. However, in everyday parlance, so…me people may consider that a square is not a rectangle or a rhombus.

# Is a rhombus always sometimes or never a rectangle?

The answer is Sometimes If it is a square then it will be both a rhombus and a rectangle, else it can be one of the the two or none.

# When is a rhombus a rectangle?

when Its angles are right angles

# Is a rectangle always a rhombus?

No, a rectangle can just be classified as a parallelogram as well.

# Can a rectangle be also a rhombus?

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.

# A quadrilateral that is both a rhombus and a rectangle?

A square satisfies those conditions.

# How is a rectangle different from a rhombus?

The opposite sides of rectangles are the same length and parallel, and the angles are all right. All four sides of a rhombus must all be the same length and parallel, but the …angles need not be right. Squares are both rectangles and rhombuses, but no other figure is both a rectangle and a rhombus. In other words, the union of the set of rhombuses with the set of rectangles is the set of squares.

# What are the similarities between a rhombus and a rectangle?

They are both 2 dimensional 4 sided shapes They both belong to the class of polygons called qudrilaterals They both have 4 interior angles that add up to 360 degrees They both… have 4 exterior angles that add up to 360 degrees They both have 2 diagonals They both have opposites sides that are parallel They both can be divided into 2 triangles They both have a perimeter which is the sum of their 4 sides They both have an area which is base times perpendicular height They both will tessellate They both have lines of symmetry
