# How is a rectangle different from a rhombus?

Space and Astronomy**A rhombus has four equal sides, whereas, in a rectangle, the opposite sides are equal**. The diagonals of a rhombus bisect each other at 90°, whereas the diagonals of a rectangle bisect each other at different angles. In a rhombus, the opposite angles are equal, whereas, in a rectangle, all angles measure 90°.

## What is the difference between rectangle rhombus and square?

The sides of a square are perpendicular to each other and its diagonals are of equal length. A rhombus is a quadrilateral in which the opposite sides are parallel and the opposite angles are equal.

Difference Between Square and Rhombus.

SQUARE | RHOMBUS |
---|---|

A square has four lines of symmetry. | A rhombus has two lines of symmetry. |

## What are the similarities between rectangle and rhombus?

Similarities between rhombus and rectangle

A Rhombus is a quadrilateral | A Rectangle is also a quadrilateral |
---|---|

Opposite sides of Rhombus are parallel to each other | Opposite sides of rectangle are parallel to each other |

Adjacent Angles of Rhombus are supplementary | Adjacent angles of Rectangle are also supplementary |

## Why is a rectangle not a rhombus?

A square is a special case of rectangle with all equal sides. Since, we know, a rhombus has all equal sides. **The sets of rectangles and rhombuses only intersect in the case of squares**. Therefore, the rectangle is not a rhombus.

## How do you prove that a rectangle is a rhombus?

**If all sides of a quadrilateral are congruent, then it’s a rhombus** (reverse of the definition). If the diagonals of a quadrilateral bisect all the angles, then it’s a rhombus (converse of a property).

## Is a rhombus and not a rectangle?

A rhombus is defined as a parallelogram with four equal sides. Is a rhombus always a rectangle? **No, because a rhombus does not have to have 4 right angles.**
