Polygon means many sides. Octagon mean eight sides. Not all polygons are octagons, but all octagons are polygons. Examples of other polygons are triangles, squares, parallelograms, rhombuses, pentagons, hexagons, heptagons, decagons

Parallelograms have only four sides. Polygons with eight sides are octagons.

Octahedron- A polyhedron with eight faces. All faces of a regular octahedron are congruent, equilateral triangles.

Depends on the type of prism.In Euclidean geometry, a prism is a three dimensional figure, or solid, having five or more faces, each of which is a polygon. Polygons, in turn, consist of any number of straight line segments, arranged to form a flat, closed, two-dimensional figure. Thus, triangles, rectangles, pentagons, hexagons, and so on are all polygons. In addition, a prism has at least two congruent (same size and shape) faces that are parallel to one another. These parallel faces are called bases of the prism, and are often associated with its top and bottom. The remaining faces of a prism, called lateral faces, meet in line segments called lateral edges. Every prism has as many lateral faces, and lateral edges, as its base has sides. Thus, a prism with an octagonal (eight sided) base has eight lateral faces, and eight lateral edges.
