A pyramid with a hexagon-shaped base has 12 edges, seven faces and seven vertices (points where edges meet). The qualities of a polyhedron are intrinsically related to one another, as is shown using an equation called Eu... More »

A square pyramid has eight edges. Four of the edges are located where the faces meet each other to form the four sides, and the remaining four occur where the side faces meet the base. More »

A Cheops or square pyramid has eight edges. This type of pyramid also has five faces, including the base, as well as five corners, known as vertices. This is the type of design used in the construction of the Great Pyram... More »

A cube has 12 edges, 24 angles, eight vertices and six faces. A cube is a regular solid made up of six equal squares. Additionally, all angles within the cube are right angles and all sides are the same length. More »

A triangular pyramid has four vertices and six edges. It is comprised of four equilateral triangles, with any one triangle being used as the base and the others connecting at the vertices to form a pyramid. More »

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. More »

A tetrahedron is a three-dimensional object that has four faces, six edges, and four vertices, or points. It can be thought of as a pyramid with a triangular base. Regular tetrahedrons are made of four equilateral triang... More »
