No, because a rectangle is not the same as a square!

One face on a square pyramid is square.

Yes a square based pyramid has triangular faces

The base is different. A rect. pyramid has a rectangle as a base. Because the sides are different length for a rectangle, the triangles will not all be congruent (equal). A square pyramid has a square as the base. All sides of the square are the same length, so all the triangular sides of the pyramid will be congruent.
