What is the lateral area of a regular quadrangular prism that has a perimeter of 16 cm and a height of 4 cm?

What makes this question tricky to answer is the understanding of the terms. Were the correct terms used in the question, and does the question poster and answer contributor have the same understanding of those terms? Having said that, here goes. A prism is a polyhedron with at least two congruent parallel faces. They are called the bases. The other faces (the "lateral faces") are parallelograms that are formed by lines that connect the corresponding vertices of the two bases. A quadrangular prism has a quadrangular base (such as a rectangle). If the base is some sort of regular polygon, it's called a regular prism. The lateral area of a prism is defined as the total area of the lateral faces. To calculate the lateral area, you multiply the length of an edge by the perimeter of the face that is perpendicular (at right angles to) to that edge. So, assuming the height, 4 cm in this case, is perpendicular to the perimeter, 16 cm, we calculate the lateral area to be 4 x 16 or 64 square centimeters or 64 cm2.

How do you find slant height given base edge and lateral edge?

Well, the lateral edges are equal to the height. Use the pathogorean theorem using a^2+b^2=c^2.

Top-down view of a triangular prism?

The answer will depend on the perspective. It could be a triangle in the shape of the base, it could be a rectangle in the shape of one of the lateral faces, or it could be a rectangle with a line dividing it in two - representing two of the lateral faces and the edge joining them

Does a cylinder have perpendicular edges?

An edge is a segment that is the intersection of two faces. A cylinder has two parallel bases bounded by congruent circles, and a curved lateral surface which connect the circles. Therefore, a cylinder does not have an edge.

Is the lateral edge of a pyramid is also its slant height?

No, the slant height is the from the top vertex to the base of the base of the pyramid, it forms a 90 degree angle with the base and slant height. The lateral edge is literally the lateral (side) edge.

Does a triangular prism has 3 rectangular faces?

Short answer, yes. Long answer, a triangular prism has two triangular faces, its bases, and three rectangular faces, its sides, which connect the two faces. Unfolding the prism into a net reveals a rectangle divided into three rectangular sections (these are the three rectangular faces) and two congruent triangles attached along a common edge to one of these rectangles (these are the two triangular faces).
