4 faces: tetrahedron; a pyramid with a triangular base has 4 faces.5 faces: pentahedron; A triangular prism (the sort you make a rainbow with) is a pentahedron; a square pyramidis a pentahedron - it has a square base and 4 triangular sides.6 faces: hexahedron; a regular hexahedron, with all its faces square, is a cube. 7 faces: heptahedron 8 faces: octahedron9 faces: enneahedron10 faces: decahedron11 faces: hendecahedron 12 faces: dodecahedron

A tetrahedron is the smallest possible polyhedron: a closed 3-d shape with polygonal faces. It has 4 triangular faces, 4 vertices and 6 edges.

Let's suppose you mean How many vertices does a nonahedron have? And the answer is, It depends. A nonahedron is a solid with nine faces. There is no regular nonahedron (look up "Regular solid" anywhere, say on Wikipedia). You could make a nonahedron bytaking a cube (6 square faces, 12 vertices) and slicing off 3 of the vertices to add 3 triangular faces (and making their adjacent original faces no longer square); this solid has 16 verticestaking a regular octahedron (8 triangular faces, 6 vertices) and slicing off one vertex to add one square face (the four adjacent original faces are now trapezoids): 9 verticesshaving down 5 of the edges to add 5 long narrow faces... and I can't visualize this one well enough to count the verticesor slicing off all 4 vertices (adding 4 small triangular faces and making the original faces hexagonal) and shaving one edge (adding a long rectangular face and changing the faces at the ends of the original edge from small triangles to trapezoids): 14 vertices, if I've got it right.taking a tetrahedron (4 faces, 6 edges, 4 vertices) andor countless other ways, yielding many different counts of vertices. ... Well, I'm sure they could be counted, but I'm not about to do it now.

No. That would make them a prism. * * * * * No. A polygon is a 2-dimensional object ad so cannot be 3-d. Also, there is no need for the shape to become a prism, as suggested by the previous answer.

Yes, it can be used to form a Dodecahedron. I don't see how! But cut out a pentagon from a piece of paper. Next make a fold along a line between any 2 corners which are not next to each other. It's no longer 2D. +++ I am not sure what the second sentence is about, but each of the 12 faces of a Dodecahedron is a regular Pentagon. You can also make a pentagonal prism, of course: two pentagonal ends joined by square or rectangular sides. (This is the basis of the prism in the viewfinder of a single-lens reflex - or SLR - camera.)

A cube has 6 faces and a triangular pyramid has 5 faces. So a cube has 1 more face than a triangular prism. But a triangular pyramid has four faces. You make the call. That is correct: A triangular prism has five faces, and a cube has six faces, but a triangular pyramid has four faces.

3 rectangles and 2 triangles

maybe it has 8 edges............ . Edges - as in corners? I make it nine. Edges as in faces? I make it five. A triangular prism has 5 edges * * * * * Edges are not corners! They are the "lines" where two faces meet. There are 9 edges in a triangular prism.

A triangular prism has 5 faces: 2 bases that are triangles, and 3 rectangles.

Google 'triangular prism net' and there will be some guides on there.

A triangular prism which will have 5 faces, 9 edges and 6 vertices

"Triangular" is an adjective and so cannot have any of anything. You need a noun to go with the adjective to make it a subject of the question: such as triangular lamina, or triangular pyramid or triangular prism, or triangular dipyramid or whatever. And in each case, the answer will be different!
