We cannot compare a rectangular pyramid with the rectangular prism because both are different in their geometry. The rectangular prism has six faces, 12 edges and eight vertices where a rectangular pyramid has five faces, eight edges and five vertices. They do not look alike. - 36k

A rectangular pyramid and a rectangular prism are alike in that they both have a rectangular base.
The pyramid comes to a point at the top; the prism is flat on top. The pyramid has 1/3 the volume of a prism with the same height and base area.
