Some commonly-known shapes are squares, circles, triangles, stars and rectangles. There are many different kinds of polygons used in geometry and many shapes that combine or arrange multiple polygons to be used in designs.
The dodecagon is the name of a 12-sided shape. This polygon also has 12 interior angles and 12 vertices. The sum of the interior angles of the dodecagon is 1,800 degrees.
Some common shapes include the circle, the square and a triangle. Each of these shapes consists of either multiple lines or curves in some ratio.
A six-sided shape is known as a hexagon. This refers to an item with a flat shape that has straight sides.
Shapes can have an infinite number of sides, but one example with a large number of sides is the googolgon, which has 10100 sides. Other examples of shapes with a large number of sides include the chiliagon (1,000), myriagon (10,000) and megagon (1,000,000).
A seven-sided shape is called a heptagon. Some people refer to heptagons as septagons, but this mixes a Greek suffix with a Latin prefix, so it is not the preferred usage.
Assuming that it is a polygon, or a shape with closed sides, a 14-sided shape is called a tetradecagon or a tetrakaidecagon. Any polygon could also be called an n-gon, where n is the number of sides. Here, a 14-sided shape would be a 14-gon.
An 11-sided shape is called a hendecagon. The name is derived from the Greek words "hendeka," which means 11, and "gon," which means corner.
A flat 10-sided shape with sides of equal length is called a decagon. A solid 10-sided shape with faces of equal size and shape is called a decahedron.
Three-dimensional shapes are solid shapes that exist in three dimensions, which include length, width and depth. The main difference between 3-D shapes and 1-D or 2-D shapes is that depth is incorporated along a third axis outside of the original 2-D plane.
