A polyhedron.

There is no specific name.

No. A polygon is a 2-dimensional figure. A polyhedron is 3-dimensional.

polyhedron

A polyhedron is a three-dimensional figure formed by flat surfaces that are bounded by polygons joining along their sides (the faces of the polyhedron).A circle is not a polygon, but we can say that a circle is the limit of a regular polygon with n sides. It means that if n becomes larger and larger, the polygon shape approaches to a circle. A circle is a two dimensional figure as a polygon is, but a three dimensional figure whose base(s) is/are a circle cannot be called a polyhedron.

Any polygon can be a face of a polyhedron.

its a 3-d trangle and i want to know if its a polygon or a polyhedron

There is no specific name nor a specific shape for such a polygon.

It can be any polygon.

a polygon(or polyhedron) is a three dimensional figure that has straight edges. * * * * * A polygon is 2 dimensional, a polyhedron is 3-d.

Any polygon can be the base of a pyramid and so any polygon can form a polyhedron.

Nope - A polygon is a flat, 2-dimensional shape. A Polyhedron is a 3-dimensional shape.

no it's a polygon not a polyhedron

It is called a face of the polyhedron.

It could be any polygon.

Because polyhedron means 'many faces' - a polygon is a two-dimensional shape - it only has one face.

A polyhedron.
