They both have a triangular shape

there both rectangle

They both have at least one rectangular face.

They are both 3d solid figures based on rectangles.

Prisms come in many shapes and sizes but all prisms must have flat sides - no curved sides so a Pyramid having flat sides and no curves is a prism. * * * * * That is utter rubbish. Both pyramids and prisms are polyhedra. That means they are solid shapes bounded by plane faces. Neither of them can have curved faces. A pyramid has one polygonal base and triangular faces that rise from the base and meet at an apex. A prism has two congruent parallel bases that are linked together by rectangular faces. Both terms are generic: they do not specify the polygonal bases.

true

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.

They are both polyhedra.

They both have a triangular shape

They are both named according to the polygons that form their base(s).

They both have at least one rectangular face.

They are both 3d solid figures based on rectangles.

They both have a base and sides. However, the prism has a second base at the top, which the pyramid does not have.

They are both polyhedra. Therefore the question is based on false premises and so is a waste of time.

they are the same because, they both have rectangular bases. Rectangular prisms are rectangular from the top and bottom (they are flat) while a rectangular pyramid has a point on the top where all of the edges meet. A pyramid has a tip at the top which unables it to stand on the tip while prisms can anyways.

they are both solid shapes they both have a rectangle they are both prisms they are both bounded by plane polygonal faces hope this helps :)
