Well if you mean triangular pyramid and triangular prism then: A triangular pyramid is a geometric solid with a base that is a triangle and all other faces are triangles with a common vertex. A triangular prism is a geometric solid with two bases that are congruent (identical), parallel triangles and all other faces are parallelograms. It is referred to as a right triangular prism if the faces are rectangles.

No.

Yes the triangular cross-section area is congruent throughput the prism.

It is a prism. More specifically, "A solid figure that has two bases that are parallel, congruent polygons and with all other faces that are parallelograms." This describes the general prism. Replace "polygons" with "triangles" and you have specified a triangular prism.

a triangular prism have 5-faces,9-edges and 6-vertices

A polyhedron that has 2 congruent faces is a PRISM. To be a prism, all the other sides (not including the 2 that are congruent) have to be 4-sided.

All the faces of a triangular prism must be flat. So finding them should not be too difficult!

yes there are congruent because of the shape * * * * * Wrong. The faces may me congruent but don't have to be. Think of a brick (a rectangular prism). Its top and side are certainly not congruent. And there is no requirement, in such a prism, for the top and bottom to be congruent either.

A triangular block prism has four right angles on each of the three faces, so the total 'on all the faces' = 12.

Look at the prism. If all faces are rectangular (or square) then so are the bases. Otherwise they are the two congruent parallel faces that are not rectangular. Look at the prism.
