a closed, flat figure is a polygon. But it is only a polygon when it is not round.

There is no solid figure with only four edges. The smallest solid figure is the tetrahedron, made up of four triangular faces, but it has six edges.

The side that is curved, when placed by itself (without bending or manipulating in any way), is not a polygon, making the shape not entirely made of polygons. A 3D figure must be made by only polygons to be a polyhedron.

A polygon is made up only of line segments. If a 2-dimensional closed figure has even one curve line, then it is not a polygon.

triangular prism

It is a polygon, but only if it is all in one plane.

triangular cone

A polygon must be a closed figure with only straight lines.

No, the "U" shape is not a polygon. Polygons are closed figures made up only of line segments. The "U" shape includes a curved section, and is usually not a closed figure.

no solid figure has only face the only shapes that has 1 face is 2d shapes

A polygon is a 2-dimensional closed figure that has at least three sides. A pentagon is a 2-dimensional closed figure that has five and only five sides, so it is a kind of polygon.

A polygon is a closed figure with only straight edges. A polygon has at least 3 sides.

yes it does. a polygon has to be a closed figure with a least three sides and it can only have straight sides--no curves

Although a polygon is usually thought of as a two-dimensional figure with at least three sides, there is nothing in the definition of a polygon that prohibits its use for the classification of a one-sided figure. A one-sided figure is known as a henagon or a monogon. A polygon, by definition, has as many vertices as it has sides, so a single-sided polygon would have to, in order to meet that criterion, curve in on itself so that the two ends of the side meet to form a vertex. In order for the polygon to not be curved, it would have to be made up of two straight lines (this figure is known as a digon). So no, a polygon cannot be a single straight line.

A flat figure polygon is a 2-D figure. It can be a square rectangle decagon dodecagon nonagon heptagon hexagon triangle parallelogram rhombus trapezoid and I forgot what the 2-D name for an 11 sided figure. (2-D can only be shown on paper and a polygon is any CLOSED figure) Hope this Helps!!! A.S.

...All polyhedrons

A polygon, but only if it has no curves.

A polygon is a closed figure bounded by sides only. Triangle is the polygon of 3 sides and 3 vertices.

A polygon is a closed two-dimensional figure, and a trapezoid is also. Therefore, a trapezoid is a polygon. *A trapezoid is a four-side polygon with only two parallel sides, which looks like a distorted square.

A cone.

A cone

How about a cone or maybe a pyramid

Yes. To be specific, a trapezoid is a quadrilateral polygon. Polygon: a plane or figure that is formed by 3 or more segments, and each side only connects to 2 other sides.

A cylinder

The sphere.
