# Is every square also a rectangle?

737475

Yes all squares meet the requirements of a rectangle. They are equiangular quadrilaterals (have 4 equal angles) and have two pairs of opposite parallel sides. Squares are a subset of all equilateral rectangles. Thus, all squares are rectangles, but only some rectangles are squares.
Yes all squares are rectangles because they have four equal angles and two pairs of opposite parallel sides. Not all rectangles are squares however, because only some of them are equilateral.

## Related Questions A square is a special case of a rectangle. Every square is a rectangle, but not every rectangle is a square. A square is a rectangle with four sides that are all equal in length. Every square is a rectangle but not every rectangle is a square. Every square is a rectangle, but not every rectangle is a square.  They both have four sides and four right angles. Every square is also a rectangle. But not every rectangle is a square. Yes, every square is a rectangle (a special kind of rectangle), but not every rectangle is a square.  No. &lt;&gt;&lt;&gt;&lt;&gt; Sort of like all pears are fruit, but not all fruit is a pear. 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. No! Every rectangle has a square if that's what you mean No. "The lengths of adjacent sides can be different." True for a rectangle, not true for a square. No, but every square is a rectangle. A square is a rectangle with every side being congruent to every other side. Every square, rectangle, and rhombus is also a parallelogram. They both have parallel lines and they have only 2 sides that match up. Also a square is a rhombus and a rectangle, so a rhombus can be a rectangle, but a rhombus cannot be a square and either can 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! :-) it cant all sides have to be equilateral edit- a rectangle cannot be a square. however, a square can be a rectangle. reedit - A rectangle can be a square, however, a square must be a rectangle. A rectangle has four 90 degree angles, which a square also has. The rectangle has two pairs of equal length sides, which a square also has. The only additional requirement for a square is that the length of all four sides be equal, which is not ruled out for a rectangle. A square is a rectangle because a square has 2 parallel sides and so does a rectangle .  A rectangle has four sides, in two pairs of equal length, and four angles, all of which are right angles. A square satisfies all of these requirements so a square is a rectangle. In adition, the two pairs of sides of a square are of equal length as well. That makes the square a very special kind of rectangle, but it is still a rectangle. Yes. Every rectangle has 4 sides and 4 right angles. A rectangle that has 4 congruent sides is therefore a square. No, only some rectangles are squares. For a rectangle to be a square, all sides must be equal (the rectangle must be equilateral). Only the equilateral rectangles are squares, but every square is a rectangle. In short, the squares are a subset of rectangles in which all four sides are equal in length. Some rectangles are squares, and all squares are rectangles.  While every square is a rectangle, not all rectangles are squares. A rectangle can have one pair of parallel lines that are longer then the other pair, however in a square all four sides are the same length.
