Yes, if the hexagons were regular and if the triangular prisms could be combined to the same shape as the hexagonal prisms.

One difference: An octahedron has 8 faces, a triangular prism has 5. An octahedron (="eight faces") is a regular high-symmetry solid with all the faces identical. A triangular prism has a triangular base, a triangular roof, and 3 rectangular sides (walls).

A triangular prism has a uniformed cross-section whereas a rectangular pyramid does not.

A rectangular prism has 6 faces while a hexagonal prism has 8 faces.

the faces of the hexagonal prism is eight triangular faces. Because of the ambiguity of the term octahedron and the dissimilarity of the various eight-sidedfigures,

The volume of any prism is worked out in the same way whether it's a hexagonal prism, circular prism or a triangular prism. You just need to times the length of the prism against the area of the cross-section.

The possible answer, with the dividing plane being perpendicular to the faces are:A triangular prism and a pentagonal prismTwo quadrilateral prismsOne triangular and one hexagonal prismTwo pentagonal prismsOne quadrilateral and one pentagonal prismTwo short hexagonal prisms.The number of possibilities increased greatly if the dividing plane can be oblique.
