Dec 28, 2015  Join us on this flipped math lesson where we visually explore the question: Is every square also a rectangle? Yes or no? Is a square a rectangle? What is a squareA rectangle is a parallelogram whose sides intersect at 90 angles. Now, since a rectangle is a parallelogram, its opposite sides must be congruent. Now, since a rectangle is a parallelogram, its opposite sides must be congruent. is a square technically a rectangle

Feb 22, 2016  Properties of a Square. Note: A square can also be defined as a special rectangle, since the opposite sides of a square are parallel to each other, and is also a special case of a rhombus (having four equal sides). Rectangle In Euclidean geometry, a rectangle is also a quadrilateral and as with the square, has four equal angles at 90.

A quadrilateral is a rectangle if all four internal angles are# [email protected]# . A quadrilateral is a square if all four internal angles are# [email protected]# and all four sides are equal in measure. Note that the first condition for a square is the same as the only condition for a rectangle, and thus all squares are rectangles. A square is a rectangle because the requirements for a rectangle is that it have two pairs of parallel sides. In other words, the opposites sides of a 4sided shape need to be parallel. This is the case for a square making it a rectangle.is a square technically a rectangle Yes, a square is a parallelogram, but we'd call it a special type of parallelogram. A square is also a special type of rectangle, rhombus, and quadrilateral.

Jun 24, 2010  seriously speaking. thanks! Yahoo Answers Sign in Sign in Mail Help is a square technically a rectangle Technically it is because a rhombus is a parallelogram that has four sides of equal length in the same way that a square is technically a rectangle that has four sides of equal length. How can the answer be improved? Every Square is a rectangle, but NOT every rectangle is a square. That being the case the ratio of any two sides of a Square is 1: 1 since all side are equal in a square, and thus can only be similar to another rectangle that is ALSO a Square. A 2x3 Rectangle CANNOT be similar to ANY Square as ratios of corresponding sides wont be equal. A 4sided flat shape with straight sides where all interior angles are right angles (90). Also opposite sides are parallel and of equal length. Example: A square is a special type of rectangle. Try moving any
