5 faces 8 edges 5 corners (vertexes) * * * * * Wrong! The answer given above is for a SQUARE based pyramid. A triangle based pyramid, or a tetrahedron, has 4 faces, 6 edges and 4 corners (vertices).

If you imagine a square-based pyramid sitting on its base, there will be the four corners of the square, plus the top: a square-based pyramid has five corners.

A square based pyramid has 5 corners (or vertices) - one for each of the corners of the square base and one at the top (or apex).It has 8 edges. Four around the base, then four more, one from each corner, meeting together at the top.It also has 5 faces; the square base and four triangular ones - one from each side of the base to the top.A square based pyramid has 8 edges, 5 faces and 5 vertices
