Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0"In Euclidean plane geometry, a rectangle is any quadrilateral with four right angles." "In geometry, a square is a regular quadrilateral. This means that it has four equal sides and four equal angles (90degree angles, or right angles)." So a square shares all the properties of a rectangle, but has the additional condition that it's regular. So all squares are rectangles.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0There are many ways for the grass to be wet the next morning (dew, sprinklers), even if it raining last night necessarily means that the grass is wet next morning.
