### A squashed square it has four equal sides but no right angles?

If you are assuming that the square would be squashed on top,
then the sides of the square would be completely crushed and have a
zig-zag look to them, and no, there would not be any right angles.
However, if you are assuming the square was crushed at an angle,
but still on top, then, theoretically, the two sides of the square
hat aren't on top or bottom would get streatched out. In this
instance, the square wouldn't have four equal sides, and no right
angles.

### What is a squashed square that has four equal sides but no right angles called?

A rhombus is the shape that looks like a smashed square. It has
two obtuse angles and two acute angles, but all four of its sides
are equal in length. That's why it's important when describing a
square to mention it has four equal sides and four right
angles, because otherwise it could still be a rhombus.

### Are the angles of a rhombus all equal?

A rhombus looks like a lopsided square, or a diamond shape.
It is a parallelogram with four equal sides.
The angles of a rhombus do not all need to be equal BUT opposite
angles of a rhombus ARE equal.
If you were to "straighten it up" and make all the angles equal
at right angles, it would be a square.
A rhombus with four right angles is a square.
