It can be a pentagonal prism or a hexagonal based pyramid
They are not the same.
a hexagon has one face and 6 edges a hexagonal pyramid has 7 faces a hexagonal prism has 8 faces
There are an infinite number of shapes. A tetrahedron (triangular pyramid), a square-based pyramid, a pentagonal pyramid, a hexagonal pyramid, etc. A triangular prism, a rectangular prism (cuboid), a pentagonal prism, etc are some examples.
they are the same one is a prism and one is a pyramid
A hexagonal prism has 2 hexagons. A hexagonal pyramid has1 hexagon.
yes hexagonal prism: 7 hexagonal pyramid: 6
A hexagonal prism has 2 hexagon faces and a hexagonal pyramid has 1 hexagonal face.
A hexagonal prism has 12 vertices, 8 faces and 18 edges. A hexagonal pyramid has 7 vertices, 7 faces and 12 edges.
A hexagonal prism has hexagons at each end whereas a hexagonal pyramid has a hexagonal base and an apex. The numbers of faces, shapes of the faces, numbers of edges and vertices are all different.
They are both polyhedra. Both have at least one hexagonal face. A 6-pyramid has only one hexagonal face, a 6-prism has 2. A 6-pyramid has only 7 face, a 6-prism has 8. A 6-pyramid has only 12 edges face, a 6-prism has 18. A 6-pyramid has only 7 vertices, a 6-prism has 12.
Faces of Hexagonal PrismA hexagonal prism has seven faces.
