squares are rectangles because they are both four sided but rectangles are not squares because a rectangle doesn't have equal sides and squares have equal sides

All squares are rectangles also, but not all rectangles are squares, only equilateral rectangles are considered square.


That depends on if the rectangles are touching or if you are asking if different kinds of rectangles are squares. But, either way, all rectangles are squares, but not all squares are rectangles.


squares are a type of rectangle


All squares are rectangles. All rectangles aren't squares.


No. Only some rectangles are - when they are squares.


They are all rectangles (or 2 squares and 4 rectangles).They are all rectangles (or 2 squares and 4 rectangles).They are all rectangles (or 2 squares and 4 rectangles).They are all rectangles (or 2 squares and 4 rectangles).


Yes, they are called squares. Squares are a subset of rectangles.


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.


Yes, all Squares are rectangles, but not all rectangles are squares because it needs to have all equal sides.


No but all squares are a rectangles


True. All squares are rectangles, but not all rectangles are squares.


A square is a specialized type of a rectangle. All squares are also rectangles, but only some rectangles are squares.


204 squares and 1,296 rectangles. That's a total of 1,296 rectangles and squares because squares are rectangles.


Rectangles are not squares. The reason to this is because squares must have sides of equal lengths. Rectangles are quadrilaterals with sides that join to make 90 degree angles, but are not restricted to having the same length. Therefore "all squares are rectangles", but rectangles cannot be squares.


No, but all squares are all rectangles.


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.


squares and rectangles. and trapazoids


Rhombuses, diamonds, rectangles, and squares.



No. The square is a special case of rectangle where all the sides are of equal length. So some rectangles are squares, and all squares are rectangles.


No, rectangles are not squares


No. Although squares are always rectangles, rectangles are not always squares. A square has four sides of equal length and four right angles. Rectangles must only have four right angles.


because squares and rectangles are not the same because squares and rectangles are not the same


All non rectangles are non squares.


all squares are rectangles but not all rectangles are squares
