# If one angle in a parallelogram is it a rectangle?

## Answer

If you mean if one of the angles is a right angle, then yes, because a rectangle is the only option left if it is to remain a parallelogram.

###### Asked in Geometry, Math and Arithmetic

### Is it true or false that every parallelogram with at least one right angle is a rectangle?

TRUE.
A rectangle is by definition a parallelogram. A parallelogram is a
quadrilateral with 2 pairs of parallel lines. A rectangle is a
parallelogram with 4 equal angles which are 360o/4 = 90o.
The opposite angles of a parallelogram are equal as well. Therefore
the following is true.
If one angle is equal to 90o then the opposite angle is 90o. That
leaves two angles and 180o. Since the two angles left are equal
then they are each 180o/2 which is also 90o.
