How do you find the area of a rectangle ks2?

It is measured in square centimetres, square metres, etc. This is also shown as cm² or as m². To calculate the area of rectangles, you simply multiply the length by the height. This gives you the complete area of the rectangle.

### Why is a square a rectangle ks2?

A square rectangle is all those things with a couple of extra bits: all four sides are equal and its diagonals cross at right-angles. So a square is definitely a rectangle but it is equilateral and equiangular too.

What are 3 attributes of a rectangle?

• All the angles of a rectangle are 90°
• Opposite sides of a rectangle are equal and Parallel.
• Diagonals of a rectangle bisect each other.

## What are the five properties of rectangle?

Rectangle Properties

• A rectangle is a quadrilateral.
• The opposite sides are parallel and equal to each other.
• Each interior angle is equal to 90 degrees.
• The sum of all the interior angles is equal to 360 degrees.
• The diagonals bisect each other.
• Both the diagonals have the same length.

What is a rectangle ks2?

A rectangle is a 2D shape with four straight sides and four right angles. Opposite sides of a rectangle are the same length and one pair of opposite sides are often longer than the other pair. If all of the sides of a rectangle are the same length, it is a special type of rectangle called a square.

### What angle is a rectangle?

90 degrees
Since a rectangle has four angles of equal measure, the measure of each must be 360/4, or 90 degrees.

Why is a rectangle special?

A rectangle is considered a special case of a parallelogram because: A rectangle is a quadrilateral with 2 pairs of opposite, equal and parallel sides BUT ALSO forms right angles between adjacent sides.

## Is the square a rectangle?

Yes, a square is a special type of rectangle because it possesses all the properties of a rectangle. Similar to a rectangle, a square has: interior angles which measure 90∘ each. opposite sides that are parallel and equal.

How do you prove a square is a rectangle?

Definition: A square is a quadrilateral with all four angles right angles and all four sides of the same length. So a square is a special kind of rectangle, it is one where all the sides have the same length. Thus every square is a rectangle because it is a quadrilateral with all four angles right angles.
