### What is the difference between prism and prymed?

I assume you mean between prism and pyramid. I suggest you look at some picture of prisms and pyramids, to get it perfectly clear. In any case, a prism has the same horizontal cross section from the bottom the top. On the other hand, the lines of a pyramid get together towards the top, to a point. If you take a horizontal cross section, at the base it will be larger, but the closer you get to the top, the smaller such a cross section will be.

### What are the difference between a right prism and an oblique prism?

In a right prism, the lateral sides are perpendicular to the bases and so all of them are rectangular.In an oblique prism, the lateral sides are not perpendicular to the bases so that some of them (at least) are non-rectangular parallelograms.In a right prism, the lateral sides are perpendicular to the bases and so all of them are rectangular.In an oblique prism, the lateral sides are not perpendicular to the bases so that some of them (at least) are non-rectangular parallelograms.In a right prism, the lateral sides are perpendicular to the bases and so all of them are rectangular.In an oblique prism, the lateral sides are not perpendicular to the bases so that some of them (at least) are non-rectangular parallelograms.In a right prism, the lateral sides are perpendicular to the bases and so all of them are rectangular.In an oblique prism, the lateral sides are not perpendicular to the bases so that some of them (at least) are non-rectangular parallelograms.
