No

a square face

you make a square twice one behind the other and you'll find yourself with a rectangular prism's.

Draw a straight line segment connecting two opposite corners of one of the rectangular faces (a diagonal).

You cannot draw a rectangular pyramid since it is a 3-dimensional object. You can only draw a projection of the 3-d object onto a 2-d plane and how you do that depends on what projection(s) you use.Volume = 352/3 = 117.33... (repeating) cubic inches.Total surface area = 168.3 sq inches, approx.

To make a Rectangular Prism you should follow this 4 steps: 1) Draw a net for a rectangular Prism, including dimensions and glue flaps. 2) If you want you can name them (front, back, top, bottom, left side and right side) to make it easy for you. 3) Cut out your net, Dry fold, (fold it but don't glue the flaps), to be sure that it works. 4) If you are happy about the Rectangular Prism and it works then use glue or adhesive tape and glue it together (The best thing is to use adhesive tape so that it sticks properly). You should now have your Rectangular Prism made.

Rectangular prisms have two rectangles at each base. Take four lines and connect the four corners perpendicularly of the two rectangles to make a rectangular prism. Rectangular pyrimads only have one rectangle base. Draw four lines from the four corners of the rectangle and make those four lines meet at one point. The way these two are alike is that they both had rectangular bases.
