## Is a rectangle a kite yes or no?

Is a kite a rectangle? Sometimes (when it’s a square). Is a trapezoid a kite? No, never.

**Can you call a rectangle a kite?**

Rhombus: A quadrilateral with four congruent sides; a rhombus is both a kite and a parallelogram. Rectangle: A quadrilateral with four right angles; a rectangle is a type of parallelogram.

**What is the difference between rectangle and kite?**

Answer: A kite is a quadrilateral with two pairs of equal adjacent sides. A rectangle is a parallelogram with four equal internal angles.

### Is a rectangle a trapezoid yes or no?

Under the inclusive definition, all parallelograms (including rhombuses, rectangles and squares) are trapezoids.

**Are all rectangles square?**

All squares are rectangles, but not all rectangles are squares. All squares are rhombuses, but not all rhombuses are squares.

**What is a sideways rectangle called?**

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.

## Does all rectangles are square?

A square is a special kind of closed figure with four straight sides and four right angles that also has sides that all have equal length. Therefore, we can conclude that: A Square is a special kind of rectangle. Every Square is a rectangle, but not every rectangle is a square.

**What shapes can be classified as a rectangle?**

Since a square has 4 right angles, it can also be classified as a rectangle. Since a square has 4 sides of equal length, it can also be classified as a rhombus. The opposite sides are parallel so a square can also be classified as a parallelogram.

**How is a rectangle different from a kite?**

Kite: a quadrilateral whose four sides can be grouped into two pairs of equal-length sides that are adjacent to each other. It follows that the square is both a rectangle and a kite, while a rectangle might not be a kite and a kite might not be a rectangle.

### Can a square be a quadrilateral and a kite?

Yes. A square is always a kite and a rectangle. A kite is a quadrilateral with two distinct pairs of adjacent congruent sides. A square has two distinct pairs of adjacent congruent sides. That makes a square also a kite.

**What kind of shape is a rectangle with 4 sides?**

Rectangle A 4-sided flat shape with straight sides where all interior angles are right angles (90°). Also: A Kite is a flat shape with straight sides. It has two pairs of equal-length adjacent (next to each other) sides. Sometimes, more specifically one time. If the rectangle has 4 sides of equal length then it would technically also be a kite.

**Why is a rectangle a square and not a square?**

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. Accordingly, how do you prove a rectangle is not a square?
