The faces of a triangular prism are parallelograms while the two bases are triangles. This gives the prism three faces. In a regular prism, the faces are rectangles. However, some prisms lean to one side and are oblique. More »

A hexagonal prism has eight faces, six of which are rectangles, and two of which are hexagons. A hexagonal prism consists of a top and bottom hexagon that are both joined by straight lines connecting each set of vertices... More »

Prisms and pyramids are two different types of three-dimensional geometric solids. The most obvious similarity is that both begin with the letter P. More »

A triangular prism has two bases, both of which are triangles. The remaining or lateral faces consist of three rectangles, for a total of five faces. If the two triangles are equilateral triangles, the lateral faces are ... More »

A rectangular prism is a three-dimensional object that has six faces that are all rectangles. On a rectangular prism, opposite faces are both equal and parallel. Rectangular prisms also have the same cross section along ... More »

A trapezoidal prism is a three-dimensional figure that consists of two trapezoids on opposite faces connected by four rectangles. A trapezoidal prism has six faces, eight vertices and 12 edges. More »

Some examples of plane figures are triangles, rectangles, squares, rhombuses, parallelograms, circles, ovals, hearts, pentagons and hexagons. A plane figure is a flat figure with closed lines that stays in a single plane... More »
