# Is a rectangle always a square why?

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.

## Related Questions A square is always a rectangle, but it is a rectangle that isn't a square. A square is a rectangle even through a rectangle is not always a square. A square is always a rectangle. A rectangle can sometimes be a square A square is always a rectangle. A rectangle is not always a square. And both are quadrilaterals. Every square is a rectangle but not every rectangle is a square. A square is a rectangle that just happens to have all its sides of equal length. That is the only instance in which a rectangle is a square, so no. A rectangle is not always a square. 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. A parallelogram is a quadrilateral (four sided figure) with both pairs of opposite sides are parallel. A rectangle is a quadrilateral with four right angles. A rectangle is not a square,but a square is a rectangle.Explanation:A rectangle is a shape with equal opposite sides.A square is a shape with 4 equal sides.A rectangle is a shape with four sides, and four right angles. Therefore, a square is always a rectangle, but a rectangle is not always a square.All squares are rectangles, but not all rectangles are squares.A rectangle is a square only if all of its sides have the same length. Yes, a square is a special case of a rectangle or a rhombus. Yes, but a rectangle is not always a square. A rectangle is not always equilateral. A square and a rhombus both have four equal sides. A rectangle is not always equilateral, although it is always equiangular. A rhombus is not always equiangular, but is always equilateral. A square is both equilateral and equiangular. The length of the rectangle way not be equal to the width. A rectangle is equilateral only when it is a square. So, no.   All four sides of a square have the same length. This is an additional condition, additionally to the conditions that make a rectangle a rectangle. , sir,Every square is a rectangle, since the angles in the square are always right angles. However, every rectangle is NOT a square: a square is just a specific type of rectangle. Hope this helps! :-) no it does not always have to be a parallelgram it could be a square or rectangle
