A cube has a total of eight vertices, despite having six square faces that would all have four vertices of their own if pulled apart. A cube has six square faces that are joined not only at the sides, but at the vertices... More »

Rectangular prisms have eight vertices. They also have six faces and 12 edges. "Vertices" is the plural of "vertex," which is defined as the point where three or more faces come together to form a point or a corner, in t... More »

A cylinder has zero vertices. A cylinder does not have a vertex because there is no point where two lines meet. This is because a cylinder, unlike a prism, has circular faces; there is no corner where two straight lines ... More »

A cube has six faces, 12 edges and eight vertices. Each face of a cube is an identical square, and every edge has an identical length, which is equal to the length of the sides of the faces. More »

The number of edges of any polyhedron can be calculated using the formula: E = V + F - 2, where "E'" denotes the number of edges, "V" indicates the number of vertices and "F" represents the number of faces. It is derived... 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 »

A rectangular prism has six faces or sides that are quadrilaterals, and they are arranged so that the figures meet at eight corners or vertices. The places where two sides meet are called edges, and rectangular prisms ha... More »
