Best Answer

A square is a 2 dimensional shape, but it can be divided into 2 or more triangles, or more smaller squares, or hexagons and triangles, or octagons and triangles, or really any rectilinear figure and triangles.

If you mean what two dimensional shapes can compromise the surface of a cube, or rectangular prism, then you want squares.

if you mean what 1 dimensional figures can make the perimeter of a square, then you want lines (straight lines).

It is neither because a square is a 2 dimensional shape whereas a pyramid and a prism are 3 dimensional shapes.

Polygons and 2 dimensional shapes

"2-dimensional" means "flat". Anything you can draw on paper is a 2-dimensional shape.

Polygons are a special type of 2-dimensional shapes.

No. A flat, 2-dimensional figure can be a quarilateral - a square for instance. A 3-dimensional figure like a sugar cube, which is a solid and has thickness, cannot. For solid shapes, names like 'Parallelepiped and rhombohedron' are used.
