Rates, percentages and units 
20141230 

From Kenneth: Hello:
If percentages have no units, why are some percentages called rates, as in interest rate, or
perhaps a tax rate of 7% as an example? A rate has units of different quantities.
I thank you for your reply. Answered by Robert Dawson. 





Can a square be a rhombus? 
20030304 

From Beth: Can a square be a rhombus? Some sources say yes, some say no. Some sources define a rhombus as a quadrilateral and parallelogram with equal sides, but without right angles. Some sources say a square is a special case of a rhombus. Clarity, please! Answered by Walter Whiteley.
