## What is the difference between a rectangle and a parallelogram?

The opposite internal angles of both a parallelogram and rectangle are equivalent. The main difference is that a rectangle always has angles of 90°, while that of a parallelogram may vary. In other words, the angles of a rectangle are always equal, or equiangular.

## What is the similarity and difference between a rectangle and a parallelogram write?

Difference & Similarity between Rectangle & Parallelogram

Rectangle | Parallelogram |
---|---|

Opposite sides of rectangle are parallel to each other | Opposite sides of parallelogram are also parallel to each other |

Opposite angles of rectangle are equal | opposite angles of parallelogram are also equal |

## What is the difference between a rectangle and square?

The main difference between them is that a square has all equal sides, whereas, in a rectangle, the opposite sides are equal. In other words, a square is a rectangle in which the adjacent sides are equal and the interior angles are equal to 90°.

## Can we say that square is a rectangle?

A rectangle can be tall and thin, short and fat or all the sides can have the same length. So, we can say that a square is a special kind of rectangle. It is the one where all the sides have the same length. Thus, every square is a rectangle because it is a quadrilateral with all four angles right angles.

## What is the truth about square and rectangle?

A square has all its sides equal in length and a rectangle has its parallel sides equal.

## Why all squares are rectangles?

Definition: A square is a quadrilateral with all four angles right angles and all four sides of the same length. Thus every square is a rectangle because it is a quadrilateral with all four angles right angles. However not every rectangle is a square, to be a square its sides must have the same length.

## Can a rectangle be a parallelogram?

A rectangle is a quadrilateral in which all angles are right angles. A rectangle is a parallelogram, so its opposite sides are equal. The diagonals of a rectangle are equal and bisect each other.

## How do you know if a parallelogram is a square?

Theorem 16.8: If the diagonals of a parallelogram are congruent and perpendicular, the parallelogram is a square.

## What shape is not a parallelogram?

An ordinary quadrilateral with no equal sides is not a parallelogram. A kite has no parallel lines at all. A trapezium and and an isosceles trapezium have one pair of opposite sides parallel. A Concave quadrilateral or arrowhead does not have parallel sides.

## What three shapes can make a parallelogram?

The four shapes that meet the requirements of a parallelogram are square, rectangle, rhombus, and rhomboid. A rhombus looks like a slanted square, and a rhomboid looks like a slanted rectangle. Squares and rectangles of a parallelogram form four right angles.

## What shapes are parallelograms but not a square?

Answer: The top right and bottom right polygons are parallelograms and not squares.
