Difference between Pyramids and Prisms
Pyramids and prisms are two different types of polyhedra. A polyhedron in geometry is nothing more than a body whose faces are all flat and which contains a finite volume within. Although they are physically similar and share a number of characteristics, it is important to learn to distinguish one from the other.

Definition  As previously mentioned, it is a polyhedron. This has a simple polygon as a base and a vertex that joins all the faces. These lateral faces are triangles with one side in common with the base. The side that two triangles have in common is called an edge.  On the other hand, a prism is another type of polyhedron. In this, its base is also a polygon, but unlike a pyramid, a prism does not have a vertex, but rather another base equal to the first. This results in side faces in the form of parallelograms (quadrilateral with pairs of equal and parallel opposite sides) and not triangles.
