The square is a special polygon. It has four sides which are all equal in length. It is a type of rectangle and a type of parallelogram as well.

E tātaihia ai te horahanga o tētahi tapawhā hāngai, ka whakareatia te whānui ki te roa: H = wh × r (H = horahanga, wh = whānui, r = roa)
Engari mō te tapawhā rite, he ōrite te whānui me te roa, nō reira H = r2 (H = horahanga, r = te roa o tētahi tapa)
