### What makes square and rectangle the same?

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.
