A triangular pyramid has three lateral faces and a triangular base. The construction of a pyramid requires a polygonal base with triangular lateral faces that meet at a common vertex.

A square pyramid has a total of five faces. Four of these are side faces, made up of triangles, while the base of the pyramid is a square.

An octagonal pyramid has nine faces: eight are triangular faces and one face is a regular octagon. It also has 23 edges and nine vertices. The topmost corner that connects all the faces is called the apex.


A triangular pyramid is a pyramid that has a triangular base. In total it consists of four faces, all of which are triangles. While all the side triangles must be of the same size, the base may or may be the same size as...

A rectangular pyramid is a pyramid that has a rectangle as the base and the rest of the faces are composed of triangles. A pyramid is named based on the shape of the base of the pyramid.

A pyramid refers to a polyhedron created by joining a polygonal base to triangular lateral faces. There are several types of pyramids, and each is named after the shape of its base. For example, a square pyramid has a sq...

A triangular pyramid has four vertices. A square pyramid has five vertices. Other pyramids have a greater number of vertices depending on the shape of the base.
