A rhombus is a quadrilateral with all sides equal in length. A square is a quadrilateral with all sides equal in length and all interior angles right angles. Thus a rhombus is not a square unless the angles are all right angles. A square however is a rhombus since all four of its sides are of the same-length.

Is a kite a parallelogram? In Euclidean geometry, a kite is a quadrilateral whose four sides canbe grouped into two pairs of equal-length sides that are adjacent to each other. In contrast, a parallelogram also has two pairs of equal-length sides, but they are opposite to each other rather than adjacent.

Are all parallelograms trapezoids? Some define a trapezoid as a quadrilateral having only one pair of parallel sides (the exclusive definition), thereby excluding parallelograms. Under the inclusive definition, all parallelograms (including rhombuses, rectangles and squares) aretrapezoids.

What is considered a square? In geometry, a square is a regular quadrilateral, which means that it has four equal sides and four equal angles (90-degree angles, or (100-gradian angles or right angles). It can also be defined as a rectangle in which two adjacent sides have equal_length.
