    What makes it a rectangular polyhedron? Because the length is longer than the width?

    Part B: A polyhedron is a geometric solid in three dimensions with flat faces and straight edges. All prisms are considered to be polyhedrons. Thus, a rectangular prism is a polyhedron.

    No, it's a polyhedron due to the geometric shape of a rectangular prism. All prism have flat surfaces and straight edges. that's why prisms are considered to be polyhedrons. That's the main characteristic of being a polyhedron.

    For part B, it's a polyhedron, but it's NOT a regular polyhedron. In order for a polyhedron to be a regular polyhedron, all of its faces need to be congruent polygons. Since that's not the case here, it's not a regular polyhedron.

    Ah, @jim_thompson5910 is absolutely correct. I missed that. Thanks for correcting me. @missashleyn, it's not a regular polyhedron for the reasons stated above by @jim_thompson5910
