Using the figure below, identify the vertices, edges, lateral edges, faces, lateral faces and bases.

example representations


Step 1.  Identify the vertices.

A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H 

Step 2.
  Identify the edges.


Step 3.  Identify the faces.

example faces 

Step 4. Identify the bases.

On a rectangular prism, there are two sets of bases.  The following bases were chosen for this example.

Step 5.  Identify lateral faces.

Based on the bases identified, the lateral faces are:

Step 6.  Identify the lateral edges.

Based on the bases identified, the lateral edges are:
