If you mean a pyramid with a four sided base, it is a square pyramid. If you mean one with four faces, it is a tetrahedron.

4-sided pyramid.

A pyramid is usually a 4 sided figure but a cuboid is not. Also, the 4 sided pyramid all the faces are triangle but the cuboid has 2 square faces and 4 rectangle faces

The answer depends upon what is meant by "have 3 triangles?" The definition of a pyramid is "a solid having a polygonal base, and triangular sides that meet in a point." (Random House Webster's Unabridged Dictionary) Typical pyramids have a 4-sided quadrilateral base and 4 triangular sides, which means that it can be loosely said to also "have" 3 triangles as well as "have" 4 triangles. A pyramid with a triangular base would also have 3 triangular sides. If we include the shape of the base as a side of the pyramid, then no pyramid would have exactly 3 "sides."

it depends what type of pyramid. if it was a four sided pyramid, there would be five. well pyramids are ancient scientific tool for direction and elements so its 4 more often and

4-sided pyramid.

4 sided (or perhaps 5 if you count the base). The base is a square and the four triangular faces rise off each of the 4 edges and meet in a point at the top.
