Question

which of the following(s) is true of a rectangle?

A.it is also a square
B.the sum of its angles measures is 360
C.it has four congruent angles
D.it has four congruent sides

0

B and C are the correct answers

2. ## Explanation:

Let’s take a look at all of our options.

A. it is also a square

• A rectangle is NOT always a square because a square has congruent sides, so that means all four of its sides are always equal.
• A rectangle can be a square but it can also not be a square, so therefore A cannot be an option because it is not always true about a rectangle.

B. the sum of its angle measures is 360

• This is true because every quadrilateral’s angle measures will add up to 360 degrees, no matter what. This is like how a triangle’s angle measures always add up to 180 degrees.
• B is an option because it is an ALWAYS true statement.

C. it has four congruent angles

• A rectangle always has 90 degree angles, giving it its shape.
• Since a rectangle always has the same-degree angles, that means that it DOES have four congruent angles.
• C is also an option because it is always true.

D. it has four congruent sides

• A rectangle does not ALWAYS have four congruent sides. Say for example a rectangle has a longer length than its width.
• A square has four congruent sides, but a rectangle is not always a square, therefore this option is not applicable for a rectangle since it is not always true.
