What geometric figure has 5 faces 8 edges 5 vertices?

The figure is a square pyramid. It is made with a square on the bottom and 4 triangles meeting at a vertex perpindicular to the square. The square has 1 face, the 4 triangles each have one face making 5 faces. The edges are made where the triangles meet each other and where they each meet the square. There are four vertices at the corners of the square and the one at the top of the pyramid.

How many faces and edges and vertices does a square pyramid have?

First, picture it in your mind. A square has four sides, the pyramid is made up of triangles. Four triangles make the upward faces of a square pyramid, but one other is on the bottom, the square, so a square pyramid has five faces. Vertices are almost as easy, count them from top down, one at the pinnacle, one at each corner of the pyramid, total 5. Finally edges, there are four triangles, so four edges, but each triangle is also joined to the square, so four more edges. Four and four make eight. So, five faces, five vertices, and eight edges.
