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.
