That shape is called a triangular prism. A prism is made of rectangles arranged in a tube with any 2D shape at the ends. This shape determines what kind of prism it is, you can get pentagonal, hexagonal, and many other types of prism.

i think it is a prism because lots of other websites are saying it is a prism so that why i think i is a prim i Hope i have answered your question

write a real answer

that would be a prism

A prism doesn't have an area; since a prism is a 3-dimensional (i.e. solid) object it has a volume. Perhaps you meant surface area. In mathematics a prism has a rather general definition. The two end faces are polygons ( not necessarily triangles ), lying in faces parallel to each other but not necessarily exactly opposite each other, and the side faces are not necessarily rectangles, but more generally parallograms. To find the total surface area you will need to find the area of each face, then sum them. In case of difficulty, submit a new question giving details of the prism.

Well if you mean triangular pyramid and triangular prism then: A triangular pyramid is a geometric solid with a base that is a triangle and all other faces are triangles with a common vertex. A triangular prism is a geometric solid with two bases that are congruent (identical), parallel triangles and all other faces are parallelograms. It is referred to as a right triangular prism if the faces are rectangles.

rectangles

These are terms which are used in the context of polyhedra. A polyhedron is a 3-dimensional, solid shape which is bounded by polygons. Every such polygon is a face. However, some faces are also called bases and this depends on the polyhedron.All the faces of a pyramid, with the possible exception of one, are triangles. The one different face is called the base. In a triangular pyramid (tetrahedron) the face that is at the bottom is the base.A prism has two identical, parallel faces which may be any polygon. All the other faces are rectangles. A non-rectangular faces are called the bases. In a cuboid all six faces are rectangles and so any pair of opposite faces are called bases.
