Only if the rectangle is a square..
A rectangle is a parallelogram with all its interior angles being 90 degrees. A rhombus is a parallelogram with all its sides equal. This means that for a rectangle to be a rhombus, its sides must be equal. If it is satisfied, we have a square.

A rectangle and a rhombus are both types of parallelograms.However they have different properties of their sides, angles and diagonals.
A rectangle has all its angles of 90 degree.It has two pairs of equal sides - two longer sides and two shorter. The diagonals of a rectangle are equal, but do not intersect at 90 degrees.
The opposite angles of a rhombus are equal. All four sides of a rhombus are equal. The diagonals are not equal, but they intersect at 90 degrees.
If we want it to be a rhombus, there have to be additional properties. The only time this would happen is if the shape was a square. A square is a rectangle, but a rectangle is not a square.

A rectangle can be a rhombus only if has extra properties which make it a square.

Let \(\displaystyle{Q}^{{{2}}}\) be the rational plane of all ordered pairs (x,y) of rational numbers with the usual interpretations of the undefined geometric terms used in analytical geometry. Show that axiom C-1 and the elementary continuity principle fail in \(\displaystyle{Q}^{{{2}}}\). (Hint: the segment from (0,0) to (1,1) can not be laid off on the x axis from the origin.
Axiom C-1: If A, B are two points on a line a, and if A' is a point upon the same or another line a′ , then, upon a given side of A′ on the straight line a′ , we can always find a point B′ so that the segment AB is congruent to the segment A′B′ . We indicate this relation by writing \(\displaystyle{A}{B}\stackrel{\sim}{=}{A}′{B}′\). Every segment is congruent to itself; that is, we always have \(\displaystyle{A}{B}\stackrel{\sim}{=}{A}{B}\).
