# Why is every rhombus a rectangle?

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.

No. Nor is every rectangle a rhombus.

No. All four vertices of a rectangle are right angles. That is not generally the case for a rhombus.

Sometimes a Rectangle can be a Rhombus.

I hope you know the definition of the parallelogram. i.e.,In geometry, a parallelogram is a quadrilateralwith two sets of parallel sides.so naturally rhombus and rectangle are special case of parallelogram. That means every rhombus is parallelogram similarly every rectangle is a parallelogram. But converse need not be true.So parallelogram not necessarily a rhombus or a rectangle.GMG.

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.

no a rectangle is very different from a rhombus because a rhombus different angles than a rectangle

No but they are both 4 sided quadrilaterals

Welll . . . Yes, but when a rhombus is a rectangle, it's a square.

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.

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

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

YesUsing the mathematical definitions, a rectangle can sometimes be a rhombus if it is a square. A square is both a rectangle and a rhombus.However, in everyday parlance, some people may consider that a square is not a rectangle or a rhombus.

yes * * * * * Not true. A rectangle has two pairs of sides which are of DIFFERENT length. All sides of a rhombus are the same length. Therefore, a rectangle is NOT a rhombus.

A rectangle is never a rhombus. A rhombus does not have right angles, but a rectangle does.
