This depends on whether or not the prism is a rectangular prism or not. Simple shape prisms (rectangular, triangle, octagonal, hexagonal) all have rectangular faces.

Rectangular Prism - A 3-D shape with 2 rectangular bases, with a total of 6 faces. Rectangular Pyramid - A 3-D shape with only 1 base that's a rectangle, with a total of 5 faces.

It's a Rectangle! * * * * * Actually, as a 3-dimensional object, it is a rectangular prism or cuboid.

A rectangle is a two dimensional shape which does not have any volume. However, the information given in the question refer to a rectangular prism or cuboid. Its volume is 26*36*16 cubic inches = 64.8 US gallons.

A cuboid (rectangular prism) is the only shape with 6 rectangular faces (3 pairs of rectangles in fact). A cube is a special type of cuboid where all the rectangles are squares. Both cubes and cuboids are special types of hexahedron (polyhedrons with 6 faces). The only shape with 6 equal rectangular faces is the hexagonal prism. However, since it also has two hexagonal faces it is therefore an irregular octahedron rather than a hexahedron.

The volume of a rectangular prism is found by multiplying the base by the rectangle by the width of the prism, leading to the formula: lwh = Awhere l is the length of the prismw is the width of the prism andh is the height of the prism.
