What is the formula of the rectangle based pyramid?

A "formula" is some mathematical rule for calculating something you wish to know. So "the formula of the rectangle-base pyramid" will be some expression which tells you something that you want to know about it.

Can a triangular pyramid be called a rectangle pyramid?
