Yes. A square is a rectangle with 4 equal sides. It's a special case of a rectangle.

A rectangle is a quadrilateral (closed shape with 4 straight sides and 4 corners) with 4 right angles.

So if we compare a square to this definition:

- A square is a quadrilateral

- A square also has 4 right angles

So basically a square is just a special rectangle where all 4 sides are equal.
