No, but the interquartile range will be always *less than or equal* to the range.

For example:

10 **10** 14 *16* 18 **20** 20

Here the range is 20-10=10

The interquartile range is also 20-10=10.

For practical sized distributions, it is quite unlikely that equality holds, but it is a possibility.
