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 not a type of squares, therefore not all rectangles are squares.

All squares are rectangles. All rectangles aren't squares.


Yes, all Squares are rectangles, but not all rectangles are squares because it needs to have all equal sides.


They are all rectangles (or 2 squares and 4 rectangles).They are all rectangles (or 2 squares and 4 rectangles).They are all rectangles (or 2 squares and 4 rectangles).They are all rectangles (or 2 squares and 4 rectangles).


No but all squares are a rectangles


True. All squares are rectangles, but not all rectangles are squares.


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


No, but all squares are all rectangles.


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 but not all rectangles are squares


All non rectangles are non squares.


All squares are rectangles, but not all rectangles are squares. The definition of a rectangle is a 4 sided figure with 4 right angles. So all squares are rectangles.


no, but all squares are rectangles


No, rectangles are not squares


Yes, but all rectangles are not square


Yes because all squares and rectangles are four-sided parallelograms. All squares are rectangles but not all reclangles are squares.


All squares and rectangles belong to the class of 4 sided quadrilaterals


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.


yes all squares are rectangles!


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.


A rectangle. A square is a form of rectangle. (All squares are rectangles, but not all rectangles are squares.) ___________ |__________|


Because there opposite sides are congruent. And all squares are rectangles, but not all 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.


Always. All squares are rectangles. A square is a rectangle whose angles are all 90º. And all rectangles are polygons, and all polygons are plane figures


No. Only some rectangles are - when they are squares.


This is a little odd, but: All squares are rectangles, but rectangles are never squares.
