No. A triangular pyramid describes a triangle whose base is a triangle (not just the sides which define it as a pyramid), whereas a rectangular pyramid is one whose base is a rectangle. A triangle and a rectangle are not the same (a triangle is not a rectangle, and a rectangle is not a triangle), so it would be incorrect to refer to a triangle-based pyramid as a rectangle pyramid.

They are both plane figures.

Yes.

two right triangles = full rectangle That is - if you multiply height times base of a triangle, the area will be 1/2 of a rectangle having the same height, and a width the same as the triangle base.

What I mean is, a rectangle where none of the sides are the same. Like a Scalene triangle, but with a rectangle.

Sounds like the triangle is spread out so that (the point is at the top of the rectangle) and (the base of the triangle is the same as the base of the rectangle).Base of rectangle = base of triangleHeight of rectangle = height of triangleWrite the formulas:Area of the rectangle = (base) times (height)Area of triangle = (one half of) (base) times (height)Can you see the ratio now ?

no
