Yes, they are called squares. Squares are a subset of rectangles.

Some people like to visualize factors as representing the lengths of sides of rectangles. In the same way that length times width equals area, factor times factor equals product.

All rectangles are quadrilaterals. A quadrilateral has 4 sides; all rectangles have 4 sides; thus all rectangles are quadrilaterals.

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.

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.

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 sidesFour angles that are right angles (90 degrees), so that the total is 360 degrees.Two pairs of parallel sidesTwo pairs of equal sidesA square MUST have the following:Four sides (All must be the same length)Four angles(Must all be 90 degrees)Two pairs of parallel sidesBecause of that not all rectangles are squares but all squares are rectangles.---Rectangles are parallelograms with all right angles, and opposite sides are congruent. Squares are parallelograms with all right angles, and ALL sides congruent. Therefore, all squares are rectangles, but not all rectangles are squares.False! squares have 4 equal sides and rectangles don't they only have 2 equal sides. Some rectangles are squares, but not all of them. On the other hand, all squares are rectangles.

All edges of a cube are the same length. A cuboid has three quartets of lines: at least one of which is of a length different from the other two. Equivalently, all sides of a cube are squares, at least some sides of a cuboid are rectangles.

I think rectangles do not have perpendicular sides. there are some perpendicular sides in a rectangle stupid person

squares are rectangles because they are both four sided but rectangles are not squares because a rectangle doesn't have equal sides and squares have equal sides

A rectangle is classed as any quadrilateral with four right angles, whereas a square is classed as a rectangle with all sides the same length. This being the case, all squares can be called rectangles, not all rectangles can be called squares, as some have sides of different lengths.

no some rectangles cannot be similar. a rectangle is a shape with 2 = sides and then 2 more different = sides. it is impossible because if 2 rectangles were similar than that would not be a rectangle. similar means having corresponding sides no it is not possible

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.

-- The rhombus has four sides. -- All four of its sides are equal in length. -- Its opposite sides are parallel. -- The sum of its interior angles is 360 degrees. -- Its opposite angles are equal. -- Its diagonals are perpendicular and bisect each other. A rhombus with all 4 angles equal (at 90°) is called a square (which is a special kind of rectangle in which all 4 sides are of equal length); thus some rhombuses are rectangles (and some rectangles are rhombuses).

A rectangular prism is a hexahedron with some rectangular sides. There is no requirement that all sides be rectangles. If they are, the solid is a right rectangular prism, or cuboid.

squares and rectangles. and trapazoids

All rectangles have four right angles, and two sets of parallel sides (two are perpendicular to the other two. However, the square is a special type of rectangle that has 4 equal sides as well as the 4 equal angles. A rectangle will have two sets of parallel sides of equal length.

No, because a scalene triangle is a triangle with no sides the same length. An isosceles triangle is a triangle with two sides the same length and one side different

No its different or same in some cases...

The above statement is not true since some rectangles ARE squares. Squares are a special type of a rectangle - one in which all sides are of equal length. In other words, the set of all squares is a subset of the set of all rectangles.

No. All rectangles are parallelograms, specifically those with two pair of parallel sides and all right angles.

Some are regular and some are not . Regular rectangles are called squares. A square is a regular polygon because all of it's sides and angles are congruent. Oblong rectangles do not have all their sides congruent and so are not regular.

A stop sign is normally a reguar polygon of some sort, such as a regular octagon, so all sides have the same length.

Polygons will be similar if they have the same number of sides AND all of their angles are the same. All of their angles are the same if all but one of their angles are the same because with the same number of sides the angles must add up to the same thing. All squares are similar (4 right angles and sides of equal lenght). All rectangles are similar (4 right angles). We know two triangle are similar if two or mare angles are the same, or if one angle is the same and the two adjacent sides are the same length. Variations of this last proof may apply to some other polygons.

No, quardrilateral means a shape having four sides, and triangle means a shape having 3 sides so no quardilateral is triangle * * * * * True, but the question had nothing to do with triangles! A kite or a rhombus are quadrilaterals but they are not rectangles. So, although some quadrilaterals are rectangles, not all are.
