Q:
# How Many Vertices Does a Hexagonal Prism Have?

**A hexagonal prism has 12 vertices, along with eight faces and 18 edges.** This shape has two hexagonal sides, as well as size rectangular sides that connect the sides of the hexagons.

In a regular hexagonal prism, the hexagons are equilateral and parallel, such that all the rectangles are the same size and connect to the hexagons at right angles. A hexagonal prism is an octahedron; an octahedron is a polyhedron having eight faces. There are over 257 convex octahedra that include the augmented triangular prism, heptagonal pyramid, hexagonal prism, truncated tetrahedron, according to Math World of Wolfram Research Incorporated.

A hexagonal prism is a type of octahedron, which is a polyhedron that contains eight faces.
