It is called a rectangular prism.

There isn't: for all faces to be rectangles there have to be 6, of which opposite sides are equal in length and breadth. (A cuboid)

Since it has 10 faces, it must be a decahedron.

The shape is a triangular prism. This is a 3-dimensional polygon with two ends that are triangles and three rectangular sides connecting them.* * * * *FYI, a 3-dimensional polygon is known as a polyhedron.

There are many plane shapes comprising 4 squares and 2 rectangles but there is no such 3-dimensional shape.

Rectangles are two dimensional objects- they have no thickness. Therefore you cannot "stack" them and so there will be no 3-D shape.

A box is a 3D shape with 6 rectangles (a box could also include squares). The rectangles are: Top/Bottom/Front/Back/Side/Side

No, rectangular prisms are 3 dimensional and rectangles are only 2 dimensional.

A rectangular prism is a solid (3-dimensional) object which has six faces that are rectangles. Such a shape has 8 vertices.

they're both 3 dimensional

The net of a 2 dimensional shape can be folded into a 3 dimensional shape

Cubes are not rectangles. The reason for this is because cubes are 3-dimensional and rectangles and 2-dimensional. However, you could say that a cube is a rectangular prism.
