square and a diamond also know as a rhombus and a rectangle technically do to the fact it can be a square

A rectangle can sometimes be a rhombus, as a square is both a rectangle and a rhombus. However, if all sides are congruent, and it has right angles, it is a square and therefore not a rectangle. So, the answer is no, although it may be argued to be yes. Wikipedia, in fact, mentions that a square is both a rectangle and a rhombus; the definition of rectangle there is a quadrilateral with four right angles, thereby not excluding the special case of a rectangular rhombus, or a square. A rhombus is not normally a square but it could be.

Yes. But the fact must be true for EVERY parallelogram.

All four sides of a rhombus has to be equal, hence rectangle is not a rhombus. A square is in fact a rhombus with right angles.

No. In general it does not. Only if the rectangle is, in fact, a square.

The rectangle is in fact a square with 4 equal sides of 5 units in length.

The largest rectangle inscribed in a circle would be the inscribed square. You can calculate the area of the square by the fact that its diagonal is the diameter of the circle.

Yes In fact, the sum of ANY 2 angles of a square (or a rectangle) is 180o

No. There is no way you can cut one rectangle in half and only get one square. The other half would also have to be a square and this will only happen if the proportions are 1:2 and you cut the long sides.There are infinitely many ways to cut a rectangle in half none of which result in new rectangles. Only if the rectangle has proportions 1:2 can cutting it in half make a square, in fact the result could be two squares, not one.

Your phrasing was a bit confusing, so I'll reword: Is a square a rectangle? Short Answer: Yes Long Answer: To be a rectangle, the following conditions must be satisfied: * Four Sides (Quadrilateral) * All sides are perpendicular (90 Degrees) * Opposite Sides are Parallel Since a square meets all of these conditions, it is, in fact, a type of rectangle.

No, rhombus refers to its shape, not the fact that is has four equal sides. You could call a rhombus an equilateral parallelogram by why would you want to? Also, would you then call a square a rhombic rectangle?

No. Except for the case of a square (a special case of rhombus), a rhombus will have 2 congruent acute angles, and 2 congruent obtuse angles. The square has 4 right angles. In fact, every quadrilateral will have either all 4 angles equal to right angle (square and rectangle), or will have at least 1 obtuse angle (also at least 1 acute).

Assuming that the fact that it is a rectangle means that it cannot be a square, then it can have any value in the interval (0, 20.25) square units. This depends on whether the rectangle is a long thin shape or a near-square.

If the only known fact is the length of the diagonal then the width and length of the rectangle CANNOT be determined. The diagonal could be that of a square, or of a rectangle that is very long but quite narrow. Consequently at least one more fact is required such as; the dimension of either the length or the width, or the angle that the diagonal makes to the base of the rectangle or even the area of the rectangle.

It never changed! The word 'oblong' still exists as a non-square rectangle. Unfortunately the way shapes tends to be taught to pupils is through drawings rather than looking closely at properties; the latter identifies the fact that a rectangle is simply a quadrilateral with 4 right-angles. This means a square is a rectangle with equal sides and an oblong is a rectangle with unequal sides.

The greatest area that a rectangle can have is, in fact, attained when it is a square. A square with perimeter of 16 cm must have sides of 4 cm and so an area of 4*4 = 16 cm2.

The least perimeter is attained when the rectangle is, in fact a square. A square with an area of 32 square feet will have sides of sqrt(32) = 4*sqrt(2) ft. So the perimeter of the square will by 4*4*sqrt(2) = 16*sqrt(2) = 22.63 feet, approx.

Each angle of a rectangle is equal to the angle opposite.

A square , a rectangle , a rhombus , in fact all the parallelograms have two parallel sides . Also a trapezium also has two parallel sides , which means one pair of parallel sides . The parallelograms have four parallel sides.

It is not possible to answer the question since there are infinitely many shapes with an area of 1300 square feet. The most compact would be a circle with a radius of approx 20.3 feet. But it could be a rectangle with sides of 1300 ft*1 ft or 15600 ft * 1 inch. In fact, making the rectangle narrow enough, there is no limit to the length of the rectangle.

Yes, a rectangle has right angles. In fact it has 4 right angles.

Yes. In fact, every square has 4 lines of symmetry. is 1.41421356try it on a calculatorEvery positive number has a square root. In fact,every positive number has two of them.There is a square root of any number, but the square root of most numbers is not a whole round number. The square root of 2 is 1.41421

The greatest area is attained when the rectangle is, in fact, a square. Then it has sides of 5 cm and an area of 25 cm2. If you are not permitted to have a square then the answer is as close to 25 cm2 as you can get without actually getting there. So, more than 24.99, more than 24.99999 etc but never quite 25.
