### How are cones and cylinders similar to pyramids and prisms?

cones are similar to pyramids because they come to a point, also
known as the vertex. Cones and pyramids are also conic. Cylinders
are similar to prisms because their base, no matter what shape,
will translate (slide) all the way up the middle to the top.
Basically, their 2 bases should always always always be congruent.
Prisms and cylinders are also cylindric.
