Top Answer

Yes. Every rectangle has 4 sides and 4 right angles. A rectangle that has 4 congruent sides is therefore a square.

0No. A rectangle has opposite sides congruent. If consecutive sides are also congruent, then your rectangle is a square.

The answer is no, if a rectangle's sides were congruent, it would be a square not a rectangle.

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

No, every square is a rectange. A square must have 4 congruent sides and rectangles don't.

"Square. Congruent means "the same". A rectangle with 4 sides that are the same is a square." Plus, it is not a rectangle. It is a polygon. The question should have been stated: What is a polygon with congruent sides?

a parallelogram, rectangle, rombus, and square all are quadrilaterals. a quadrilateral means a shape with 4 sides. only 2 sides are congruent in a parallelogram 2 sides are congruent in a rectangle 4 sides are congruent in a rombus 4 sides are congruent in a square

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.

If they did, then it would be a square. Technically, a square is a rectangle though, so a rectangle can have 4 congruent sides.

Every parallelogram has. That includes every square, rectangle, and rhombus.

A square has all congruent sides. A rectangle has two pairs of parallel sides.

To qualify to be a square, the polygon has to have BOTH 4 right angles AND 4 congruent sides. A rectangle does not have both qualifications.

You maybe thinking of a square or a rhombus because a rectangle does not have four congruent sides.

Every parallelogram. (That includes rhombus, rectangle, and square.)

A rectangle is a square when all of its sides are the same length.A rectangle is SOMETIMES a square.However, a square, is ALWAYS a rectangle.This is due to the properties held by a rectangle as well as properties of a square.Properties of Rectangle:Opposite sides are congruent.All angles are 90o.Opposite sides are parallel.Opposite central angles created by the diagonals are congruent.All diagonals are congruent.Properties of a Square:All sides are congruent.All angles are 90o.Opposite sides are congruent.Opposite sides are parallel.Diagonals intersect at a 90o angle.All diagonals are congruent.So one can have a square that is always a rectangle due to the properties. However, a rectangle will only be a square if properties are the same as a square.SometimesWhen all of its sides are exactly the same length.

Correct. A square is a rectangle, a special kind that is 'regular'--all its angles are congruent, and all its sides are congruent.

That is called a square.

A square or a rectangle.

square and rectangle

A square has all four equilateral sides, whereas a rectangle has two sets opposite sides that are congruent. A rectangle can be a square, but a square can not be a rectangle.

All sides congruent = square Two pairs of mutually congruent sides = rectangle

Every parallelogram, rhombus, rectangle, and square has.

They are sometime congruent because a square is a parallelogram and its sides are congruent and a rectangle is one and its sides aren't congruent.

No indeed, but every square is a rectangle. Rectangles have four sides like squares, but they don't have all sides congruent to one another. All rectangles do not possess the same symmetrical lines as squares.

Any rectangle that is not square.

Rhombus, Rectangle, Square
