Rhombus is the mathematician's name for the 'diamond' shape (as in the playing card suit). The square is a rhombus, too, being a special case where not only are all the sides equal but the angles are equal too. As the internal angles of any four-sided figure add up to 360 degrees, this means that the square has 4x90. Ordinary rhombuses have two equal 'narrow' angles and two equal 'wide' angles (i.e 2x40 and 2x140).
