No. Polyhedrons are any shape with multiple sides. A triangle and a prism are just two different kinds of polyhedrons.

Both pyramids and prisms are three dimensional. Both of them have polygon faces. Another thing common about pyramids and prisms is that they have a base and faces.

Triangular prisms and square-based pyramids have 5 faces. Trapezoid prisms and cubes have 6 faces. Hexagonal prisms and octahedrons have 8 faces.

Prisms are a subset of polyhedra (or polyhedrons!)

i am not sure.

No.

Polyhedrons such as pyramids and cuboids

One difference is square pyramids have 4 triangular faces while rectangular prisms have none!

The surface area of prisms or pyramids are simply the total area of the corresponding nets.
