# Which special quadrilateral is both a rectangle and a rhombus? Explain how you know Thanks

a square

Because a square has four 90-degree angles and, when turned on an angle, the angles opposite each other are all equal (the top angle is the same as the bottom angle, and the same for the left and right). This makes a square a rectangle.

The special quadrilateral that is both a rectangle and a rhombus is called a square. A square is defined as a quadrilateral with all sides equal in length and all interior angles equal to 90 degrees. This meets the criteria for both a rectangle (since it has 90-degree angles) and a rhombus (since it has all sides equal). Therefore, a square is both a rectangle and a rhombus.

- A parallelogram has sides with lengths of #15 # and #12 #. If the parallelogram's area is #54 #, what is the length of its longest diagonal?
- A parallelogram has sides with lengths of #15 # and #8 #. If the parallelogram's area is #48 #, what is the length of its longest diagonal?
- Two rhombuses have sides with lengths of #4 #. If one rhombus has a corner with an angle of #(11pi)/12 # and the other has a corner with an angle of #(3pi)/4 #, what is the difference between the areas of the rhombuses?
- It is given that line MO = line TR and line NP = line QS, where MNOP and TQRS are parallelograms. A student has said that if those statements are true, then MNOP = TQRS. Why is this student incorrect?
- Two opposite sides of a parallelogram each have a length of #9 #. If one corner of the parallelogram has an angle of #(3pi)/8 # and the parallelogram's area is #36 #, how long are the other two sides?
