There are many types of prisms such as rectangular prisms,polyganic prisms crossed prisms and etc.
There are 48 edges on 4 rectangular prisms.
Given the surface area of a rectangular prism, there are infinitely many rectangular prisms possible.
The reason for prisims is... think about it! Would it be easy to stack spheres?
Rectangular prisms are shapes which are easy to stack. As a result. many goods are transported in the form of rectangular prisms, or shapes approximating them: eg six packs of cans, ream of printer paper, bundle of newspapers. Furthermore, they are bundled together on palettes, into shipping containers, etc which are also rectangular prisms.
Given any rectangular prism, there are infinitely many other rectangular prisms with exactly the same surface area.
They have 16 corners.
A rectangular cube (a cuboid) is a kind of prism and, by convention, prisms have two bases.
All prisms have at least 3. They all have 2 identical polygonal faces which are linked by as many rectangular faces as they have edges.
1 regetangular prism
A rectangular prism has:6 faces, 8 vertices and 12 edges.
rectangular prisms have 12 edges and 4 lateral edges
There are 4 of them.
