A pyramid has 4 faces. :D * * * * * Not quite. A pyramid is a generic term used to describe a polyhedron with a polygonal base and a number of triangles rising from that base to meet at an apex. A pyramid whose base is a polygon with n-sides (or vertices) has n+1 faces, n+1 vertices and 2n edges, where n ≥ 3.

Five faces, in all.

Assuming that a squre parimid is your way of spelling square pyramid, the answer is 5.

It has 6 vertices, 9 edges and 5 faces

A cube has 6 faces, 12 edges, and 8 vertices. By: SupeRMAn

Vertices refers to the angles (and is the plural form of vertex). If your "triangle-based prism" has triangles for every face including the base, then it would have three vertices at the base (the bottom triangle) and one at the top (where the three side triangles meet) for a total of four vertices. By "triangle-based prism" you could also mean a pyramid shape with a square base consisting of four vertices at the base and one at the top where the four side triangles meet, in which case there would be five total vertices. * * * * * Total rubbish! A prism is a prism and not a pyramid! A triangle based prism is one with two congruent and parallel triangular faces, joined together by three rectangular faces (like a Toblerone box). It has 6 vertices. A triangular prism has as much to do with a triangular pyramid as an icosahedron!

4, each of which is a triangle.

the answer is that, if you look at the base and count the edges that's how much more faces there would be on the pyramid. Example, if i have a hexagonal - based pyramid, a hexagon has 6 sides so the faces in the middle of the solid are six also so a hexagonal-based pyramid will have 12 faces. :)
