# Question: Is area of rhombus and square same?

Contents

Area of a rhombus or any parallelogram = base × height. In a rhombus, the side and height are not the same. However, the area of the square = side×side, wherein the side could also be the height of the square. A square is a rhombus because it has four sides, and each side is the same length.

## Is rhombus and square are similar to each other?

No. Because a rhombus has all sides equal in length but square has all sides equal in length and also all the interior angles are right angles. Thus they r not similar.

## Why is a square a special kind of rhombus?

Square is a rhombus because as rhombus all the sides of a square are equal in length. Even, the diagonals of both square and rhombus are perpendicular to each other and bisect the opposite angles. Therefore, we can say the square is a rhombus.

## Is a square Sometimes a rhombus?

Since squares must be quadrilaterals with two sets of parallel sides, then all squares are parallelograms. This is always true. Squares are quadrilaterals with 4 congruent sides. Since rhombuses are quadrilaterals with 4 congruent sides, squares are by definition also rhombuses.
