Is a square a rectangle? When did the geniuses of the Math world come up with that one? If you refer to Webster, a square is a parallelogram with 4 EQUAL sides and 4 right angles. Wouldn't that rule out a rectangle? Sorry, but I'm no math wiz, just wondering why my daughter got that answer wrong on a math quiz. Would love this explained in Laymons Terms. :)
