No. A triangular pyramid describes a triangle whose base is a triangle (not just the sides which define it as a pyramid), whereas a rectangular pyramid is one whose base is a rectangle.

### Why is a rectangle a trapezoid?

A rectangle is not a trapezoid. A trapezoid is defined as a quadrilateral with one pair of parallel sides and another pair that is not parallel. That description cannot be applied to a rectangle. It is only if you define a trapezoid as a quadrilateral with one pair of parallel sides and say nothing at all about the other sides, can a rectangle be said to be a trapezoid. But you would have to be mathematically incompetent to use that as a definition of a trapezoid.

So the perimeter is 2*L + 2*W or 2*(L + W).
