They are not technically the same. A square is a rectangle but a rectangle is not a square.

A rectangle requires opposite sides to be the same length. A square's opposite sides are the same length so it is a rectangle.

A square requires all sides to be the same length, not just opposite sides. So most rectangles are not squares.
