Both pyramids and prisms are three dimensional. Both of them have polygon faces. Another thing common about pyramids and prisms is that they have a base and faces.

pyramids are prisms. * * * * * Pyramids are not prisms nor are prisms pyramids. A pyramid has one polygonal base. Each side of that polygon is connected to a triangle, whose third vertices meet at a point above the base of the pyramid. A prism has two congruent polygonal bases that are parallel to one another. They are joined together by rectangles.

true

prisms pyramids sphere cylinder

They both have a base and sides. However, the prism has a second base at the top, which the pyramid does not have.

because they are based one one shape

cones are similar to pyramids because they come to a point, also known as the vertex. Cones and pyramids are also conic. Cylinders are similar to prisms because their base, no matter what shape, will translate (slide) all the way up the middle to the top. Basically, their 2 bases should always always always be congruent. Prisms and cylinders are also cylindric.

they are not sometimes prisms

i am not sure.

No.

One difference is square pyramids have 4 triangular faces while rectangular prisms have none!

The surface area of prisms or pyramids are simply the total area of the corresponding nets.

Pyramids and cones have a pointed top (apex) while prisms and cylinders have flat tops. Pyramids and cones have a single base, while prisms have two parallel bases. Cones have a curved surface while pyramids have triangular faces.

They are polyhedra.
