### 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.

### Can a parallelogram be a rectangle and a square?

the three special quadrilaterals that can be a parallelogram are a rectangle, a square, and a rhombus Actually, this is incorrect. All squares are rectangles. All rectangles are parallelograms. Therefore all squares are parallelograms. But not all parallelograms are rectangles. And not all rectangles are squares.

### 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…

### How come not all rectangles are squares?

The characteristics for a rectangle is that it has to have 4 right angles and 2 pairs of congruent and parallel sides. Squares have to meet these requirements and also have to have all sides congruent. All rectangles meet to the rectangle's standard, but not all of them meet up to a square's standard. Therefore, not all rectangles are squares. Or, in a more simplified version: squares are a type of rectangle, but rectangles are…

### Is a square a type of rectangle?

All squares are rectangles but not all rectangle are squares. The definition of a rectangle is a quadrilateral with two sets of parallel sides, and 4 right angles. A square meets both of these criteria, so it is categorized as a rectangle. But since a square has to have four even sides and a rectangle has to have two larger sides and two smaller sides it cannot be a square

### Are all rectangles squares?

No. A square must be a rectangle, but a rectangle does not have to be a square. A square is a rectangle that has four sides of equal length. -- A rectangle MUST have the following: Four sides Four angles that are right angles (90 degrees), so that the total is 360 degrees. Two pairs of parallel sides Two pairs of equal sides A square MUST have the following: Four sides (All must be the…

### Is every square also a rectangle?

Yes all squares meet the requirements of a rectangle. They are equiangular quadrilaterals (have 4 equal angles) and have two pairs of opposite parallel sides. Squares are a subset of all equilateral rectangles. Thus, all squares are rectangles, but only some rectangles are squares. Yes all squares are rectangles because they have four equal angles and two pairs of opposite parallel sides. Not all rectangles are squares however, because only some of them are equilateral.

### Can a rectangle be a square explain?

a rectangle has 4 right angles. A rhombus has four congruent sides. A square has four right angles and four congruent sides. All squares are rectangles because all rectangles have 4 right angles, and all squares have four right angles. But not all rectangles are squares because not all rectangles have congruent sides.
