A heptagonal prism has two 7-sided bases.

Sometimes,only because,a rectangular prism has two bases and four faces, but a triangular prism has two bases and three faces.

A prism will always have at least TWO bases

In a right prism, the lateral sides are perpendicular to the bases and so all of them are rectangular.In an oblique prism, the lateral sides are not perpendicular to the bases so that some of them (at least) are non-rectangular parallelograms.In a right prism, the lateral sides are perpendicular to the bases and so all of them are rectangular.In an oblique prism, the lateral sides are not perpendicular to the bases so that some of them (at least) are non-rectangular parallelograms.In a right prism, the lateral sides are perpendicular to the bases and so all of them are rectangular.In an oblique prism, the lateral sides are not perpendicular to the bases so that some of them (at least) are non-rectangular parallelograms.In a right prism, the lateral sides are perpendicular to the bases and so all of them are rectangular.In an oblique prism, the lateral sides are not perpendicular to the bases so that some of them (at least) are non-rectangular parallelograms.

a triangular prism has to triangular bases while a rectangular prism has a rectangle as the bases.

Each and every prism has two parallel congruent bases. It is the shape of these bases that give the name to the prism: a pentagonal prism has pentagons (not necessarily regular) for its bases.

A triangular prism has 2 bases on it!

The volume of a three-dimensional figure is the amount of space it encloses. The volume V of a triangular prism is the product of the area B of a base and the height h of the prism. (The bases are triangles. In a special case of a right triangular prism the bases are right triangles)
