A hexagonal prism has hexagons at each end whereas a hexagonal pyramid has a hexagonal base and an apex. The numbers of faces, shapes of the faces, numbers of edges and vertices are all different.

A pyramid with 18 edges would be called a nonagonal pyramid. A prism with 18 edges is called a hexagonal prism.

Heptagonal prism * * * * * No, a heptagonal prism has 9 faces. The correct answer is a hexagonal pyramid.

A prism with a hexagonal base.

They are all polyhedra with 12 edges.

A hexagonal prism has 12 vertices, 8 faces and 18 edges. A hexagonal pyramid has 7 vertices, 7 faces and 12 edges.

It is not.

a pyramid

hexagonal pyramid

They are both polyhedra. Both have at least one hexagonal face. A 6-pyramid has only one hexagonal face, a 6-prism has 2. A 6-pyramid has only 7 face, a 6-prism has 8. A 6-pyramid has only 12 edges face, a 6-prism has 18. A 6-pyramid has only 7 vertices, a 6-prism has 12.

they are the same one is a prism and one is a pyramid

No.

Hexagonal prisms are things such as a honeycomb filled with honey; it is more of a cube-ish form. As for the pyramid, is buids upward and the bottim has 6 sides.

A hexagonal pyramid is a hexagon that has 6 flat faces converging to one point. A hexagonal prism is a hexagon that has 6 flat faces connecting it to another hexagon.
