That depends on if the rectangles are touching or if you are asking if different kinds of rectangles are squares. But, either way, all rectangles are squares, but not all squares are rectangles.

All squares are rectangles also, but not all rectangles are squares, only equilateral rectangles are considered square.

A square is a specialized type of a rectangle. All squares are also rectangles, but only some rectangles are squares.

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.

A square is a rectangle, rectangles don't have to be squares but squares have to be rectangles.

No. The square is a special case of rectangle where all the sides are of equal length. So some rectangles are squares, and all squares are rectangles.

Yes, but all rectangles are not square

No you must be mistakeing rectangles for rhombus's

A square prism is one whose two ends are square and the remaining 4 faces are rectangles.

Yes.A square is a special kind of rectangle, one with all sides of equal length. So all square are rectangles.All rectangles are not squares, some (most) have two sides longer than the other two.

A rectangle is not a square

Rectangles don't have square roots.

Rectangles have 4 rift angles and some parallelogram doesn't have 4 right angles. Only two parallelogram has 4 right angles , square and rectangle

umm, obviously?! diamonds, rhombi(plural for rhombus), rectangles, kites

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.

In fact, some are rectangles, but not all are.

Yes, some quadrilaterals are rectangles.

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.

because squares and rectangles are not the same because squares and rectangles are not the same

All squares are rectangle, but not all rectangles are square. The expected answer is "a square" ... A square has 4 lines of symmetry. A rectangle that is not a square has 2 lines of symmetry. However, the question is ambiguous. Since a square is a rectangle you can say that some rectangles have 4 lines of symmetry. A better question is, "Which has more lines of symmetry; a square, or a rectangle that is not a square?"

It depends on the context of the sentence. Squares may be considered as a special case of rectangles. Alternatively, the term rectangles may be reserved for right-angled quadrilaterals other than squares.

If "reantangles" is meant to be rectangles, then the answer is no.

Rectangles just need 4 sides that all have right angles, which a square has. A square needs all sides equal and at a right angle, which a rectangle doesn't have

No. Only some parallelograms are rectangles. But all rectangles are parallelograms.

No, trapezoids are never rectangles.

A rectangle can be called a square but a square can not be called a rectangle
