• why is a square a rectangle but a rectangle is not a square? •   Good question... a rectangle can't be a square because a square has all four sides the same length. A rectangle has two sides of the length, but it's also the same thing on the shorter lines. So, in summary, a square and a rectangle are the same.
• why do i keep thinking a rhombus is a square? Is my mind playing tricks on me? • i thought a rhombus was a diamond wieard right • why is a square a rectangle • Assuming the inclusive definition of trapezoid is used where it includes parallelograms(which is the definition wikipedia uses) than a parallelogram is a trapezoid. Does this mean that a trapezoid is a parallelogram? • what are these comments dawg • commet on this if your cool • why do u talk a lot?
