A cube also has eight vertices and 12 edges. A vertex is a corner that joins edges together; therefore, the eight vertices are located at the corners. Half of the vertices surround the top face, and the other half border the bottom.

A cube is a unique three-dimensional shape because all six of its faces are the same size and shape.
