O.K. to help you guys out a square is a rectangle. a square is a square that has four sides the same rectangle is not a the same only to sides are there that are the same for each side. Hope i helped you out

A square is a rectangle however a rectangle is not a square because it doesn't have equal edges.

They are not technically the same. A square is a rectangle but a rectangle is not a square. A rectangle requires opposite sides to be the same length. A square's opposite sides are the same length so it is a rectangle. A square requires all sides to be the same length, not just opposite sides. So most rectangles are not squares.

Yes. Although a rectangle cannot be a square.

Square. Congruent means "the same". A rectangle with 4 sides that are the same is a square.

If it is a perfect rectangle and you are measuring the sides by feet then the length times the width of a rectangle is the same as the square footage.

They are the same but a rectangle is longer wheras a square isn't.

I am squarea squarea rectangle with all sides the same lengthAlso called a square

no, a square has 4 equal sides while a rectangle has two even sides. Therefore, neither are the same.

For a start, a square IS a rectangle, so it has ALL the properties of a rectangle. A square has the additional property that all of its sides have the same length.

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.

A square is a rectangle in which all the sides are the same length.

it is the formula for both a rectangle and a square. remember a square is a rectangle, but a rectangle is not a square (what i mean is a square has to have all 90 degree angles and four sides that are all the same length a rectangle doesn't have all the same lengths. but a rectangle is a shape with all 90 degree angles, and a square fits that discription)

No, because a rectangle is not the same as a square!

They both have 4 sides, a square can be a rectangle but a rectangle can't be a square since the sides aren't all the same length

A "regular" polygon has all sides the same length. A "regular" rectangle has all sides the same length, therefore it is also a square. An "irregular" rectangle then would be any rectangle that is not a square.

A rectangle can be a square but a square cannot be a rectangle. No, for a shape to be a rectangle, it must have 2 pairs of parallel sides and 4 right angles. The square shares both of these qualities, but it also must have 4 congruent (same) sides, which means they must all be the same length. Therefore, a rectangle cannot be a square.

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.

No. A square by definition is a shape with 4 "equal" sides yes a square is a rectangle because a rectangle has everything but equal sides so it is still the same

Since a square is a rectangle, you can use the formula for the area of a rectangle to calculate the area of a square. The only difference is that length and width will be the same.

First answer: Yes, a rectangle can be a square if all it's sides are the same length. The definition of a rectangle is "a four sided figure where opposite sides are the same length. If all sides are 4 inches, then opposite sides will be equal.Second answer:~Yes, a rectangle can be a square. ~The definition of a rectangle: a parallelogram with four sides, the sides are parallel to each other, the sides parallel to each other are the same length, there are 4 right anglesDifference between a square and a rectangle: all of the sides are the same length in a squareConclusion: a square is always a rectangle but a rectangle isn't always a square.

the area of a rectangleis 100 square inches. The perimeter of the rectangle is 40 inches. A second rectangle has the same area but a different perimeter. Is the secind rectangle a square? Explain why or why not.

Yes. For example, a 4x4 square would have an area of 16 units squared. A 2x8 rectangle would also have an area of 16 units squared. Also, every rectangle is a square too though every square is not a rectangle. So, a 4x4 square is also a rectangle which means both have the same area.

a rectangle is a 4 sided polygon where all the angles are right angles and the opposite sides haveequal length. So a square is a rectangle. But take a rectangle that meets the definition I gave and make the 4 sides NOT the same length. Opposite sides are still the same, but all four sides are not the same so it is not a square. This is a non-square rectangle.

A square is a regular rectangle which is why a rectangle isn't a square.
