For the same base dimensions (base area) and the same height, the rectangular prism has more surface area.
The dimensions are the length width and height of the prism. So if the prism is halfed then you would have to cut the dimensions in half depending on where the prism was cut.
Surface area = 2lw + 2wh + 2hl
Given the surface area of a rectangular prism, there are infinitely many rectangular prisms possible.
It depends on the dimensions of the rectangular prism.
If they have the same height, then the rectangular prism will require more paint. (Having the same height the prism will have more surface area than the pyramid).
A rectangular prism with a length of 11m, width of 8m and height of 3m has a volume of 264m3
A rectangular prism has 3 dimensions. Whereas the rectangle has only 2 dimensions.
