A cross section of the rectangular pyramid is cut with a plane parallel to the base. What is the name of the shape created by the cross section? Explain your answer. If a cross section of the rectangular pyramid is cut perpendicular to the base, passing through the top vertex, what would be the shape of the resulting cross section? Explain your answer.
