# Can a square and a rectangle have the same area?

###### Wiki User

Yes.

For example, a 4x4 square would have an area of 16 units squared.

A 2x8 rectangle would also have an area of 16 units squared.

Also, every rectangle is a square too though every square is not a rectangle.

So, a 4x4 square is also a rectangle which means both have the same area.

If it is a perfect rectangle and you are measuring the sides by feet then the length times the width of a rectangle is the same as the square footage.

not necessarily. take the example of a 3x3 square and a 4x2 rectangle. Both have a perimeter of 12. but the square has an area of 9 and the rectangle has an area of 8.

Multiply the length by the width. If the rectangle is a square the two dimensions will be the same

No. A square is a rectangle, but a rectangle is not a square.

A square would have the same formula for area as a rectangle: Area = length x width. Both figures have four right angles.

O.K. to help you guys out a square is a rectangle. a square is a square that has four sides the same rectangle is not a the same only to sides are there that are the same for each side. Hope i helped you out

A right-angle triangle is half of a square or rectangle. Draw a square or rectangle and draw a line from one corner to the corner diagonally opposite. You now have two triangles of the same area.

Area of a square/rectangle=its length &times; its width

The area of a square is calculated the same as that of a rectangle: length x width.

A square is a rectangle however a rectangle is not a square because it doesn't have equal edges.

Rectangle area, square metre = (rectangle length, metre) x (rectangle width, metre)

Multiply the length and width to find the area of both a rectangle and square.

The formula is for a square and rectangle is A=bh or A=lw

Area of a rectangle in square units = length*width

The area of a square or rectangle can be found by multiplying the length times the width. In a square both the length and width are the same measure.

To find the area of a square you multiply the length by the width. Since it is a square and not a rectangle you will be multiplying the same number because all the sides are the same length.

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.

Area of circle = pi*212 = 1385.44236 square cm Area of rectangle = 1385.44236 square cm Lenght of rectangle = 1385.44236/18 = 76.96902 cm Perimeter of rectangle = 2(76.96902)+2(18) = 189.93804 cm

For a rectangle or square, Area = Length * Width So Length = Area / Width.

Any plane shape can have the same area as any other plane shape if the dimensions are carefully selected
