Yes, squares and rectangles are parallelograms. Any figure with two sets of parallel sides is considered to be a parallelogram.

parallelagram http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parallelagram well specifically you would be a rectangle which has parallel sides like a square. a parallelogram can be a square or a rectangle because they all have parallel sides but only squares and rectangles have right angles on all sides. parallelograms have congruent sides which require acute and obtuse angles.

When is a square not a rectangle?

A square has 4 equal sides, and 4 equal angles and are considered paralellagrams A rectangle has 4 equal angles but not necessarily 4 equal sides, it is also a parallelagram.. On a square all sides are congruent, while in a rectangle only opposite sides are. So when is a square not a rectangle? what defines a rectangle and a square, each shape has to have 4 right angles. the sides are parallel and that in a square all four sides are congruent while in a rectangle only the opposite sides are congruent. So a rectangle must have opposite sides that are parallel and equal and four right angles. A square must have opposite sides parallel, all sides congruent, and four right angles. a rectangle is a parallelogram with four right angles, while a square is a parallelogram with four congruent sides and four right angles. By this definition a rectangle is a square since it has opposite sides that are congruent and parallel and it has four right angles. The question is, why a rectangle is not a square? A rectangle is not a square because it is not required to have four congruent sides.
