The interior angles of a square always add up to 360 degrees. Each individual angle contains 90 degrees. Other kinds of quadrilaterals may have equal sides or equal angles but not both. For example, every angle in a rectangle is of equal breadth, each angle containing 90 degrees. However, the sides differ in length. In a rhombus, all of the sides are equal, but the breadth of the angles differ.
