What is the difference between a square and a rectangle?

Answer

The main difference between a square and a rectangle is that a square has to have all four sides the same length, while a rectangle has two sets of sides that are the same length. A square is technically also a rectangle, but a rectangle cannot be a square. They both have to have 90 degree angles at all four corners.
