Question from Danny:

Is a rectangle a rhombus??? True or False

Hi Danny,

The problem would be more clear if it was worded "Is every rectangle a rhombus?"

A rhombus is "a quadrilateral with all sides equal in length".

Is every rectangle a quadrilateral?

Does a every rectangle have all its sides of equal length?

If the answer to both questions is yes then every rectangle is a rhombus. If not then not every rectangle is a rectangle.
