What is a triangular prism?
A triangular prism is formed when a triangle is translated in the air so each side of the triangle is always parrelell to its original position.

What is a cylinder?
A cylinder is a solid with two parellel congruent circle bases.

What is the difference between 3 dimensions and 2 dimensions?
2D-is flat (if you turn it to its side it will look like a line.)
3D- has 3 dimensions: width, length, and depth (if turned to the side you would still see the shape)
