are squares rectangles?

OpenStudy (anonymous):

Yes.

OpenStudy (anonymous):

always?

OpenStudy (anonymous):

Yes. the definition of a rectangle is a 4-sided figure with opposite sides parallel and opposite sides equal length. A square just happens to have all *four* sides equal length. It's a special case of rectangles.

thanks!!!!!!!

OpenStudy (anonymous):

my pleasure

OpenStudy (anonymous):

that definition is not exactly correct. A rectangle has 4 right angles. Mtbenders definition is for the parallelogram

Doh! I knew I'd be missing something. GOod call Andras. I probably also should have said "convex 4-sided figure"
