# A rectangle has length 5 units more than the side of this square and width half the side of this square If the two areas are equal what are the squares dimensions?

Area of Rectangle = Area of Square.

S/2 x (S+5) = S2

S2+5s =2s2

S2-2s2 +5 =0

S(- s +5) =0

S=0, S=5

### Is every rectangle also a square?

No, only some rectangles are squares. For a rectangle to be a square, all sides must be equal (the rectangle must be equilateral). Only the equilateral rectangles are squares, but every square is a rectangle. In short, the squares are a subset of rectangles in which all four sides are equal in length. Some rectangles are squares, and all squares are rectangles.

### Is a rectangle a square?

A rectangle is not a square, but a square is a rectangle. Explanation: A rectangle is a shape with equal opposite sides. A square is a shape with 4 equal sides. A rectangle is a shape with four sides, and four right angles. Therefore, a square is always a rectangle, but a rectangle is not always a square. All squares are rectangles, but not all rectangles are squares. A rectangle is a square only if…

### What makes square and rectangle the same?

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.

### How are the dimensions of the rectangles for a given number of square tiles related to factor pairs?

The number of square tiles is always equal to factor pairs. As an example, imagine a rectangle that contains 8 squares - 2 rows of 4. 2 X 4 = 8. In other words, the dimensions of the rectangles are ALWAYS equal to a factor pair of the number of squares in the rectangle. A rectangle containing 24 squares could be made as 24x1, 12x2, 8x3, or 6x4.

### Area of a square verse area of a rectangle?

The formula for the area of a square is simply L2 (sometimes referred to as s2 ) where L (s) is the length of one side. The formula for the area of a rectangle is LW, where L is the length and W is the width. The formula for the area of a rectangle can be used to find the area of a square, but the formula for the area of a square cannot be…

### Can 2 rectangles make a square?

All squares are rectangles, but not all rectangles are squares. Basically, a square is a rectangle where all sides are the same length. However, providing that the width is half of the length, or vice versa, and you join the two rectangles along the one of the sides that is longer, two rectangles can make a square. Example: 1x2 rectangle joined with another 1x2 rectangle will make a 2x2 square.

### How are the dimensions of the rectangles for a given number of square tiles related to factor pairs of the number?

The number of square tiles is always equal to factor pairs. As an example, imagine a rectangle that contains 8 squares - 2 rows of 4. 2 X 4 = 8. In other words, the dimensions of the rectangles are ALWAYS equal to a factor pair of the number of squares in the rectangle. A rectangle containing 24 squares could be made as 24x1, 12x2, 8x3, or 6x4.

### Why are squares rectangles but not all rectangles are squares?

A rectangle has four sides and four right-angled corners. A square has four sides and four right-angled corners and has all sides of equal length. A rectangle is defined as having: Four sides; All angles equal at 90°; Two pairs of opposite sides of equal length. A square is defined as having: Four sides; All angles equal at 90°; All four sides of equal length. The first two properties are common to both the square…
