I learned ALL of thoose in the fifth grade!

Also, a square is a rectangle, but a rectangle is not NECESSARILY a square. That is, it can be one.

Wrong category. Geometry can involve computation, but all I see in this teaser is definition.

Good one, but I agree that there are MANY answers to this.

math isnt even necessary. along the same lines of Y is not necessarily X - a spoon is a utensil but a utensil is not (necessarily) a spoon. or any inclusive thing to a larger group. the list goes on and on.

I agree, the question wasn't phrased very well...

the teaser was not phrased properly.anything could stand for X and Y.
