Hexagonal prisms are things such as a honeycomb filled with honey; it is more of a cube-ish form. As for the pyramid, is buids upward and the bottim has 6 sides.

the answer is that, if you look at the base and count the edges that's how much more faces there would be on the pyramid. Example, if i have a hexagonal - based pyramid, a hexagon has 6 sides so the faces in the middle of the solid are six also so a hexagonal-based pyramid will have 12 faces. :)

A triangular prism has 5 faces. Pentagonal prisms and hexagonal pyramids have 7.

A cube has 6 faces and a triangular pyramid has 5 faces. So a cube has 1 more face than a triangular prism. But a triangular pyramid has four faces. You make the call. That is correct: A triangular prism has five faces, and a cube has six faces, but a triangular pyramid has four faces.

There are infinitely many polyhedra. Hexagonal Prism, Septagonal Prism, Ocatagonal Prism, Nonagonal Prism, Decagonal Prism, etc...

A hexagon is a 2-dimensional shape. A "structure" implies a 3-dimensional shape but you have not specified whether it is a hexagonal pyramid, a hexagonal prism or some other shape that is [partly] based on a hexagon. Without that information it is not possible to give a more helpful answer.

There are an infinite number of shapes. A tetrahedron (triangular pyramid), a square-based pyramid, a pentagonal pyramid, a hexagonal pyramid, etc. A triangular prism, a rectangular prism (cuboid), a pentagonal prism, etc are some examples.

A hexagonal pyramid.

18. Six on each face, and six more that connect the vertexes of the two faces.

a prism is more square and a pyramid is more triangular * * * * * Not true. A prism consists of two congruent and parallel polygonal faces (called bases) which are joined together by rectangular faces (called lateral faces). A pyramid consists of one polygonal face (called a base) attached to triangles that meet at an apex.

A pyramid has either a square or triangular base, and has either three or four triangular faces. Where as a prism has three or more rectangular faces with two other faces with the same amount of rectangular faces going around the edges to match up with the other faces. Think of a toblerone box, that's a prism.

It depends on the exact shape. An octahedron is a shape with eight faces. It can be a heptagonal pyramid (8 vertices, 14 edges), or a hexagonal prism (12 vertices, 18 edges), square dipyramid (6 vertices, 12 edges) are some examples. There are more.

becaus a prism is the same in 2 sides, so it looks the same either way, where as a pyramid with more than 3 sides for its base, like a square pyramid, a hexagonal pyramid, a pentagonal pyramid, etc., doesn't look the same if it stands on one of its triangles.

rectangular prism

depends what kind of pyramid, if its a four sided pyramid then its the same but if its a three sided pyramid then the triangular prism has more

one has more sides

Rectangular prism.

The generic term is a hexahedron. It can be a pentagonal pyramid, or a quadrilateral prism (or a more irregular version of that).

Octagon Octahedra. But there are 257 different kinds. Some of the more common ones are: heptagonal pyramid. hexagonal dipyramid. hexagonal prism. truncated tetrahedron. tetragonal trapezohedron. You can search for these on Wikipedia to see an image.

A pyramid can have 0 or 1 square faces. It can have 4 or more faces - there is no limit.

These are called polyhedrons, and their names are from the Greek word for the quantity (number) of faces (sides) on each shape. All faces are exactly the same as each other on regular polyhedrons; one or more faces are different from the other faces on irregular polyhedrons. A few of the countless number of polyhedron names, with the name following the number of faces on the 3d shape are:4 tetrahedron (a regular tetrahedron is a pyramid with 3 sloping sides and a base)5 pentahedron (a regular pentahedron is a pyramid with 4 sloping sides and a base)6 hexahedron (a regular hexahedron is a cube, having 4 sides, a top, and a base)10 decahedron12 dodecahedron24 icositetrahedron90 enneacontahedron

For planar faces, any number you want of 4 of more.examples:a tetrahedron has 4 facesa triangular prism has 5 facesa cube has 6 facesa hexagonal prism has 8 facesa dodecagonal prism has 12 facesan icosahedron has 20 facesUsing a prism, the number of faces is the number of sides of the polygon of the ends plus 2. As any polygon can be used for the ends, the number of faces possible is any number 5 or more.
