Prisms are different because they are not a triangular shape and pyramids are. If you think about it, in ancient Egypt, how did the pyramids look like? Aha. NOW do you understand?

Some hexahedra are prisms or pyramids.

Prisms have 2 bases while a pyramid has 1 base

A triangular pyramid is similar to a triangular prism because:These prisms have triangular bases.They have the sharp vertices on each side.These prisms also have quadrilateral faces or 4-sided faces!

The derivation of the formula of pyramid can be gained easily based on the formula for a triangular prism. A pyramid is like two prisms joined together.

Cubes are prisms that have squares as bases and the height is the same as the edges. A square prism has square bases, top and bottom, and parallelograms as sides. A square pyramid has a square base and triangles for the vertical sides.

the difference between a pyramid and prism (in geometry) is that a pyramid has one base and lateral faces that are triangles where prisms have two congruent bases and lateral faces that are parallelograms

Hexagonal prisms are things such as a honeycomb filled with honey; it is more of a cube-ish form. As for the pyramid, is buids upward and the bottim has 6 sides.

Prisms have 2 bases while a pyramid has 1 base

They both have a rectangle at the bottom of the two 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.

pyramids are prisms. * * * * * Pyramids are not prisms nor are prisms pyramids. A pyramid has one polygonal base. Each side of that polygon is connected to a triangle, whose third vertices meet at a point above the base of the pyramid. A prism has two congruent polygonal bases that are parallel to one another. They are joined together by rectangles.

A triangular pyramid is similar to a triangular prism because:These prisms have triangular bases.They have the sharp vertices on each side.These prisms also have quadrilateral faces or 4-sided faces!

Both represent a shape and are a 3D figure but, a pyramid only has 1 face and prisms have 2 faces.

yes all you derps who asked this question!

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.
