A triangular based pyramid has 4 faces, 6 edges and 4 vertices whereas a square based pyramid has 5 faces, 8 edges and 5 vertices

Square Pyramid has a square base and 4 triangular sides. Triangular Pyramid has a triangle base and 3 triangular sides.

Square Pyramid

No. A triangular prism has six vertices. A square pyramid has five vertices. A triangular pyramid has four vertices.

Square Pyramid

A pyramid which we normally call a triangular- based pyramid has 4 triangular phases (including the base, so that means the base of a normal pyramid is triangular) but a a square pyramid has a square phase to its base and the other 4 phases are triangular. so that can be identified as the difference between a pyramid and a square pyramid.

the difference is a triangular pyramid has a point at the top and a triangular prism doesn't and a triangular pyramid has a square at the bottom and tringular prism doesn't
