They are polyhedra.

Rectangular pyramids and triangular pyramids both have triangular faces.

Triangular prisms and Rectangular pyramids

Rectangular prisms have two rectangles at each base. Take four lines and connect the four corners perpendicularly of the two rectangles to make a rectangular prism. Rectangular pyrimads only have one rectangle base. Draw four lines from the four corners of the rectangle and make those four lines meet at one point. The way these two are alike is that they both had rectangular bases.

Pyramids end in one vertex and prisms end in multiple vertices. E.g. Rectangular Prisms are like cubes( multiple vertices) and pyramids are like cones (one vertex).

Rectangular pyramids and triangular pyramids both have triangular faces.

They are all, technically, prisms.

they are the same because, they both have rectangular bases. Rectangular prisms are rectangular from the top and bottom (they are flat) while a rectangular pyramid has a point on the top where all of the edges meet. A pyramid has a tip at the top which unables it to stand on the tip while prisms can anyways.

Both pyramids and prisms are three dimensional. Both of them have polygon faces. Another thing common about pyramids and prisms is that they have a base and faces.
