A die can have any number of sides; one-sided dice are a joke in the form of a sphere and two-sided dice are often a simple coin shape. Others use platonic solids to give the required number of sides.The most commonly used are six-sided dice, noted as d6 and usually cubic, but other common numbers include d4 (a tetrahedron), d8 (an octahedron), d10 and d12 (a dodecahedron).

Correct.

There are seven topologically different types of convex hexahedra and three concave ones. These have different names such as parallelepiped, left-handed tetragonal antiwedge, or simply "4,4,4,4,3,3 faces". The last of these is a tetrahedron with a v-shaped chunk cut out of one edge.

A point that two sides of a polygon have in common is called a vertex. Each regular polygon has an equal number of sides as vertices.

A rectangular prism has 6 faces, they are grouped into three pairs of parallel, identical faces. A common rectangular prism is a regular box.

The platonic solids are: a tetrahedron, a cube, an octahedron, dodecahedron and icosahedron. A pyramid has a base with triangles attached to it with a common vertex. The platonic solid that is a pyramid is a tetrahedron (a triangular based pyramid).

A Tetrahedron. The most common form of a tetrahedron is called a regular tetrahedron, or a pyramid

Octagon Octahedra. But there are 257 different kinds. Some of the more common ones are: heptagonal pyramid. hexagonal dipyramid. hexagonal prism. truncated tetrahedron. tetragonal trapezohedron. You can search for these on Wikipedia to see an image.

It is called a Tetrahedron.

An octahedron is a closed 3-d shape with 8 polygonal faces. There are 257 topologically different convex octahedra. The only thing that all these have in common - a special feature - is that they have eight faces.

An octahedron is a closed 3-d shape with 8 polygonal faces. There are 257 topologically different convex octahedra. The only property which is common to all 257 - and which is not shared with other polyhedra - is that the shape has eight faces.

No, a t/hedron has 4 vertices where three sides meet.

A tetrahedron (4 faces) or triangular bipyramid (5 faces).

tetrahedron ( tetrahedra or tetrahedrons) is a polyhedron composed of four triangular faces, three of which meet at each corner or vertex. It has six edges and four vertices. The tetrahedron is the simplest of all the ordinary convex polyhedra and the only one that has four faces.The tetrahedron is the three-dimensional case of the more general concept of a Euclidean simplex.The tetrahedron is one kind of pyramid, which is a polyhedron with a flat polygon base and triangular faces connecting the base to a common point. In the case of a tetrahedron the base is a triangle (any of the four faces can be considered the base), so a tetrahedron is also known as a "triangular pyramid".A cation is a positively charged ion, which is an atom or molecule with one or more of its electrons removed.

So there were a lot of different barriers but the most common one is called a tetrahedron also known as hedgehog.
