The definition of a rectangle is a quadrilateral with four 90 degree angles, which is not always a square. The definition of a square is a quadrilateral with four 90 degree angles and all sides congruent, which is always a rectangle.

Rectangles do not have congruent lines. A square can always be called a rectangle. But a rectangle can't always be a square.

A rectangle is sometimes a square, but not always. When it is, it's also a rhombus. A rhombus is sometimes a square, but not always. When it is, it's also a rectangle. A square is always a rhombus and always a rectangle. Rectangles, rhombera, and squares are always parallelograms and quadrilaterals.

Yes a Square is always a Rectangle because both have congruent angles.

A square is always a rectangle, but a rectangle is not always a square. A square is a special rectangle that has all 4 sides the same length.

The simple answer is that a rectangle IS NOT always a square. A square is always a rectangle, though, because it has 4 corner angles of 90 degrees, and opposite sides are parallel and equal in length.

A square has all the properties of a rectangle and rhombus. (A square is always a rectangle.) A rectangle is not always a square but is always a parallelogram.
