, sir,

Every square is a rectangle, since the angles in the square are always right angles. However, every rectangle is NOT a square: a square is just a specific type of rectangle. Hope this helps! :-)

Both a square and rectangle have four sides and four right angles.

A square is a member of the rectangle family. A rectangle is a square only when it has four equal sides .
