The sides of a three-dimensional solid are called its faces. Since a square pyramid has four triangular sides connected to the perimeter of the fifth square side, this solid is said to have five faces. Edges are places where two sides of a three-dimensional solid meet. Vertices are where three sides of a dimensional solid meet and are often called corners.
