A rectangle can be a square but a square cannot be a rectangle. No, for a shape to be a rectangle, it must have 2 pairs of parallel sides and 4 right angles. The square shares both of these qualities, but it also must have 4 congruent (same) sides, which means they must all be the same length. Therefore, a rectangle cannot be a square.
