# Are all rectangles squares if not explain why?

No. All rectangles are not squares. Think of rectangles and squares as boxes. Would you be able to fit a rectangle into the square box? Nope. But you would be able to fit the square into the rectangle box. <---- Hope that helped. :)

### 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.

### 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.

### 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 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.

### Why are rectangles squares?

Rectangles are not squares. The reason to this is because squares must have sides of equal lengths. Rectangles are quadrilaterals with sides that join to make 90 degree angles, but are not restricted to having the same length. Therefore "all squares are rectangles", but rectangles cannot be squares.

### Which statements about squares and rectangles are true?

The statements: It is a quadrilateral (a shape with 4 sides) It has two pairs of opposite sides equal of equal length which are parallel All angles are equal at 90ยฐ The diagonals are equal in length and bisect all squares are rectangles but not all rectangles are squares are all true about squares and rectangles

### 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.

### 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…

### Are all squares parallelograms?

Yes. But not all parallelograms are squares. All squares are also rectangles (and all rectangles are parallelograms), but not all rectangles are squares. "parallelogram" just means both pairs of sides are parallel (and rectangle just means all the angles are right). Yes, since they all have a pair of sides that are parallel, they are all parallelograms. Parallelograms are squares only if all four sides are of the same length and all interior angles are…

### Can you call a 4 sided shape a parallellogram?

Only if 2 sides are parallel with each other, and the other two sides are also parallel with each other. All squares are rectangles. All rectangles are parallelograms. All parallelograms are 4 sided. But not all 4-sided are parallelograms, not all parallelograms are rectangles, and not all rectangles are squares.
