The number of vertices does not determine the number of faces. If the shape with 6 vertices was a quadrilateral based bipyramid, it would have 8 faces. A hexagonal based pyramid has 7 vertices and 7 faces. So more vertices does not necessarily imply more faces.

the answer is cylinder

The shape would be impossible. The faces and vertices have to add up to two more than the edges.

Any sort of prism.

A cube has 8 vertices and 6 faces. Therefore a cube has 2 more vertices than faces.

Three dimensional objects have edges, vertices and faces. A face is a plane surface which forms a boundary of the shape. Two faces meet along a line which is an edge. Three or more faces meet at a point which is a vertex.

A cube or a cuboid has 12 edges, 6 faces and 8 vertices.* * * * *or the more general shape: a parallelepiped.A rectangular prism, for one. A cube is a specialized case of this, where all 6 faces are congruent squares.

Bipyramids are a class of polyhedra with more faces than vertices.

An octahedron, for example. 8 faces, 6 vertices.

For all polyhedra: vertices + faces = edges + 2 The given fact is: edges = vertices + 10 → vertices + faces = vertices + 10 + 2 → faces = 12

It depends on the exact shape. An octahedron is a shape with eight faces. It can be a heptagonal pyramid (8 vertices, 14 edges), or a hexagonal prism (12 vertices, 18 edges), square dipyramid (6 vertices, 12 edges) are some examples. There are more.

No. A cube has 6 faces and 8 vertices - it has exactly 2 more vertices than faces.

a shape with 7 vertices

A cube has eight vertices and six faces (think of a die!).

A shape with four sides has four vertices and a shape with three sides has three vertices, so a shape with four sides has more vertices than a shape with three sides.

For two dimensional shapes, a vertex (plural vertices) is a point where two sides meet.For 3D shapes, a vertex is a point where three or more faces meet.

A verities is were 3 or more faces meet.

a square based pyramid * * * * * Or, more generally, a quadrilateral based pyramid.

Any 2-dimensional shape has a vertex where two sides meet.Any 3-dimensional shape has a vertex where three or more faces meet.

The general shape with the characteristics that you require is a parallelepiped. Special cases of this shape are the rectangular prism. An even more special case is the cube.

It is a hexahedron, of which, a cuboid may be a more familiar example.

Four or more place polygonal faces. Four or more vertices. Six or more edges. Faces + Vertices = Edges + 2

A dodecahedron has 20 vertices's, 30 edges, and 12 faces. * * * * * Not true. All that can be said is that it has 12 faces. The shape could by a pyramid with a hendacgon (11 sided) base, or a decagonal dipyramid and many many more. See the link for some examples.

A rectangular pyramid.

A 4 sided shape which is a quadrilateral has more vertices than a 3 sided shape which is a triangle
