 Everyday Examples
 Right Prism:  A prism which has bases aligned one directly above the other and has lateral faces that are rectangles.
Many skyscrapers are examples of right prisms because they have rectangles as faces and the faces meet the ground at right angles. Some skyscrapers are not right prisms because often they may have a pyramid on the top or they may be round making them cylinders. This "piggy bank" is also a right prism.
