# 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 90o.

### 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.

### What shape is a square but not a parelellogram?

No shape is a square but not a parallelogram as all squares are parallelograms: All parallelograms have opposite sides parallel and of equal length, and opposite angles are equal. All squares have opposite sides that are parallel and of equal length, and opposite angles are equal; thus all squares are parallelograms. However, all squares also have all angles equal to 90o and all four sides equal, but some parallelograms have angles not all 90o and/or…

### How a parallelogram is a square?

Parallelogram is not a square Answer By definition, all squares are parallelograms because opposing sides of any square are parallel to each other. However, not all parallelograms are square because their sides are not always an equal length, nor are the angles of any two adjacent sides always 90 degrees. Therefore, all squares are parallelograms, but not all parallelograms are squares.

### Do parallelograms have to be squares?

No. Parallelograms have two pairs of parallel opposite sides; they do not have to be the same length. The opposite angles of a Parallelogram are equal; they do not have to be 90o A square is required to have all sides equal (opposite sites will be parallel) and all angles 90o (opposite angles are the same) Thus all squares are parallelograms, but only some parallelograms are squares. A rhombus is a parallelogram which has all…

### 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.

### Do parallelograms have parallel sides?

Yes. A Parallelogram is a quadrilateral that has two pairs of parallel sides which are opposite each other and of equal length, though the pairs may be of different length to each other. If the angles are all 90Â° then the parallelogram is also a rectangle. If the angles are all 90Â° AND all sides are equal then the parallelogram is also a square. All squares are rectangles, but not all rectangles are squares; Similarly…
