No, a dodecahedron doesn't have perpendicular faces

The shape of the 12 faces of a regular dodecahedron are regular pentagons.

equilateral triangles-Apex ;)

An icosahedron has 20 faces, 30 edges, and 12 vertexes. 5 polygons meet at each vertex and each face has 3 vertexes (therefore made of triangles). A dodecahedron has 12 faces, 30 edges, and 20 vertexes. 3 polygons meet at each vertex and each face has 5 vertexes (therefore made of pentagons).

Yes! a Dodecahedron has parallel faces.

No, a dodecahedron doesn't have perpendicular faces

A dodecahedron is a generic term which describes a 3-dimensional shape with 12 polygonal faces. There are approx 6.4 million topologically different convex dodecahedra plus concave ones. The faces can be polygons with 3 to 11 sides and so the total surface area of a dodecahedron is the sum of the areas of each of these faces.
