Given, the net of a rectangular prism has _________ rectangles.

We have to fill in the blanks to make the statement true.

Given, every square is a rectangle but every rectangle is not a square.

A rectangular prism is a three-dimensional shape, having six faces, where all the faces (top, bottom, and lateral faces) of the prism are rectangles such that all the pairs of the opposite faces are congruent.

A rectangular prism has 6 faces, 12 edges (sides) and 8 vertices (corners). In the 12 edges, 3 edges intersect to form right angles at each vertex.

Therefore, the net of a rectangular prism has 6 rectangles.
