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.

They are both polyhedra.

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.

To start off a pyramid has 1 base and the prism has 2 bases. The prism has more vertices than a pyramid.

Pyramids and cones have one base and an apex whereas prisms and cylinders have two bases.

they are not sometimes prisms

because they are based one one shape

Both are closed three dimensional polyhedra, all of whose faces are polygonal. They may need to be convex but I am not 100% sure about that.

i am not sure.

No.

They are both polyhedra.

No. Polyhedrons are any shape with multiple sides. A triangle and a prism are just two different kinds of polyhedrons.
