Circles don't, but the others do, if you think of squares and rectangles as parallelograms.

The bases and sides of a rectangular prism are rectangles.  Yes, triangular prisms have two faces that are equilateral triangles and three faces that are rectangles. yes, they do ,because they have two bases that are equilateral triangle and three faces that are rectangles. Yes, the two bases are triangles, the 3 lateral faces are rectangles. Triangular prisim. The three faces are rectangles, while the two bases are triangles. A rectangular prism is a three dimensional shape. The two bases are squares and the four sides are rectangles. A triangular prism has 5 faces: 2 bases that are triangles, and 3 rectangles. no Pyramid bases can be any polygonal shape, but are often squares or triangles. The Egyptian Pyramids were constructed on square bases. A triangular prism has triangles as its bases...a cylinder has circles as its bases.no one fricken cares It's called, not altogether surprisingly, a hexagonal prism. If the bases were hexagons and the other faces were triangles, it would be a hexagonal antiprism. A pyramid has one polygonal base and the rest of the faces are triangles. A prism has two congruent polygonal bases and the other faces are rectangles. A triangular pyramid has one base, a triangle, and 3 sides, also triangles, meeting at one point, the vertex, at the top. A triangular prism has two parallel bases which are triangles, but the sides are rectangles that connect the two triangular bases. The faces are always rectangles on prisms, so if it's a triangular prism the bases are triangles; if it's a rectangular prism, the bases are rectangles; if it's a hexagonal prism, the bases are hexagons. Any polygon can form the base of a prism. Some people also consider cylinders to be circular prisms. In which case any closed plane shape can form the base of a prism. The answer is both. A rectangular prism will have two triangular bases, with three rectangles forming the sides that connect the sides of the triangles together. Like this: . . . . . . / \ \ / \ \ / . . \ . . . .\ The lateral sides are usually rectangles so each would comprise four right angles. However, the bases can be any pair of congruent triangles. A cylinder has two circles as its bases. It is a 3D 5-sided figure. 3 of the sides are rectangles and it has 2 bases that are triangles (top and bottom base). It typically looks like a "tent" like one that you camp in. Basically, triangles have 3 bases. Unless you want to calculate the area of the triangle(which requires the height), triangles have three bases.
