## The Prism

Prism is a polyhedron in which two faces are equal polygons in parallel planes, and all other faces are parallelograms. There are two types of prism; oblique prism and right prism. Oblique prism is when the axis is *not* perpendicular to the base and right prism if the axis is parallel to the base. In right prism, all lateral areas are rectangle.
